We now know 19 more songs from the upcoming The Beatles: Rock Band, bringing the grand total to 44 tracks in all.
Or is it 45? MTV Games and Harmonix have hinted at one last 'mystery' song - the 45th, they say - that will be announced soon. As previously reported, Within You With You is to be coupled with Tomorrow Never Knows - said to be from the Love soundtrack - so we're guessing they're counting the two numbers as one. If not, then we'll have 46 songs.
Maybe they're just trying to keep us on our toes.

The Beatles: Rock Band is to be released on 9/9/09, the same day as the entire Beatles remastered catalogue.
