The Beatles' songs were streamed more than 50 million times in the first 48 hours after they made their song catalog available to music streaming services last week. After boycotting sites like Apple Music and Spotify for years, the band finally began allowing their music to be streamed starting on Christmas Eve. According to The Daily Mail, the web analysis site BrandWatch found that 65 percent of those listeners—at least on Spotify—were millennials under the age of 34. They probably think "Hi-Fi" is a type of Internet connection (that joke was from your dad, who is currently listening to Abbey Road on vinyl).
In real world terms, that means that no one Beatles song is doing as well as, say, Justin Bieber's "Sorry," though "Come Together," the top-listened Beatles song on Spotify, managed to crack the U.S. Top 50 list. However, in just a few days, the "Fab Four" (as all journalists have to call them at least once per article, union rules dictate) have managed to become the 131st ranked artist on Spotify, which is pretty damn impressive for a band that hasn't made music together in over 45 years.
According to Rolling Stone, a magazine for old potheads to put in their vans, these are the most-streamed Beatles songs on Spotify in the U.S.:
1. "Come Together"
2. "Hey Jude"
3. "Here Comes The Sun"
4. "Let It Be"
5. "Twist And Shout"
7. "I Want To Hold Your Hand"
8. "In My Life"
9. "She Loves You"
It's weird that the objectively, factually best Beatles song, "In My Life," isn't number one, but whatever.
