    It's so true that

    He loves the Beatles. It's so true that he's always whistling not only their hits, but also their less famous songs.
    Is there another expression that conveys the same idea as the underlined one?

    Re: It's so true that

    If I have read it as intended, you could say "You're so right - he's always whistling ...". I assumed that your excerpt was the response to someone saying "He really likes The Beatles, doesn't he?"
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    If it's the same speaker, you could say "So much so that..."
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Yes, it's the same speaker, and I had this "so much so that.." in mind!
