In other news....

Believe it or not, there is actually Beatles news to report outside of everything related to John's 70th birthday. None so clamorous, admittedly, but worthy of mention all the same.

Here are some of the bigger items:

- In total, the cast of Glee has charted 75 songs on the Billboard Hot 100, which breaks the previous high of 71 held by The Beatles. It's of note that two of these songs are in fact covers of Fab Four originals: "Hello, Goodbye" and a beautifully re-imagined version of "I Want to Hold Your Hand," which was featured in last week's episode. Go here to read NPR on the implications of Glee's ascendancy.

- The South American leg of Paul's "Up and Coming" tour will include a stop in Argentina on November 10.

- Finally, Yoko has revealed that Paul played a crucial role in mending her marriage with John following the latter's "lost weekend."
