Christmas with the Beatles.

The Daily Mail has been given some figures from Spotify - the largest of the music streaming service providers - about the Beatles' performance in the first 48 hours after their songs became available from them.
According to that report, the Beatles' songs were played 50 million times in the first 48 hours of their music being available to stream online. Spotify has released the following figures in a list of the ten most streamed Beatles songs during those 48 hours:

1. Come Together (1.84 million)
2. Let It Be (1.55 million)
3. Hey Jude (1.32 million)
4. Love Me Do (1.31 million)
5. Yesterday (1.23 million)
6. Here Comes The Sun (1.23 million)
7. Help! (1.22 million)
8. All You Need Is Love (1.17 million)
9. I Want To Hold Your Hand (1.1 million)
10. Twist And Shout (940 000)

Again, according to the article, 65 per cent of the Beatles’ listeners on the streaming service Spotify were under the age of 34.

According to an earlier article in The Independent, there are differences in the lists of most streamed songs in the UK and the global list. Here are the two lists provided by The Independent:

UK: Most streamed tracks by The Beatles on 24 and 25 December

1. Come Together
2. Hey Jude
3. Here Comes the Sun
4. Twist and Shout
5. Let It Be
6. I Want To Hold Your Hand
7. Help!
8. Love Me Do
9. I Feel Fine
10. She Loves You

GLOBAL: Most streamed tracks by The Beatles on 24 and 25 December:

1. Come Together
2. Let It Be
3. Hey Jude
4. Love Me Do
5. Yesterday
6. Here Comes The Sun
7. Help!
8. All You Need Is Love
9. I Want To Hold Your Hand
10. Twist And Shout

In an earlier list, from when each song had been streamed less than 1000 times each, NME published this list on their website:

1. Let It Be
2. Here Comes The Sun
3. Hey Jude
4. Twist and Shout
5. Come Together

The release of the better part of The Beatles' catalogue to streaming providers follow a five year exclusivity window for the catalogue being available on iTunes. Some products, released after the initial batch on 09.09.09 seem to still be under such an iTunes window of exclusivity. This is stuff like the "Anthology" album series, the entire mono album collection, the US / Capitol mixes, "Let It Be...Naked", the BBC compilations, the 1963 Bootleg compilation and "Love". This year's remixed "1" album is available for streaming, however.

Beatles songs were streamed an astonishing 50 million times in the first 48 hours after they became available to listen to live on the internet for the first time.
The hits of the Fab Four, who broke up in 1970, are now being enjoyed by a new young audience, with 65 per cent of the Beatles’ listeners on streaming service Spotify under the age of 34.
The arrival of their songs on such digital formats has been delayed for years by bickering over contracts.

But since being made available on Spotify, Amazon Prime, Apple Music and other sites from midnight on Christmas Eve, the band’s much-loved catalogue means their music is being enjoyed by a generation who are strangers to older forms of music technology.
The most popular Beatles song so far is Come Together, which has already been streamed more than 1.8 million times.
Analysis from Brandwatch also found 46,000 mentions of 'The Beatles Streaming' on social media within hours of the launch.
The majority, 87 per cent, were found to be positive, while 13 per cent were negative.
Brandwatch also created a topic cloud concerning mentions of The Beatles streaming, which revealed Spotify was the most talked about streaming site, followed by Apple Music.

The 10 most popular Beatles songs now streaming on Spotify
The biggest band of all time became available for streaming on Christmas eve, and here's what came out on top

Spotify has revealed the 10 most streamed tracks by The Beatles over Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, following their introduction to the streaming service at 00.01am on Christmas Eve.

Following a lengthy boycott of music streaming services, the majority of The Beatles' back catalogue became available to almost every major platform including Spotify, Apple Music, Google Play, TIDAL, and Amazon Prime.

Much to fans' delight, the endless bickering over the definitive Beatles track might have now found some conclusion: Spotify has released a list of the Top 10 tracks streamed both globally and in the UK, with the grooves of 'Come Together' topping both lists.

What's sure to generate a little conversation amongst more dedicated followers is the revelation that Spotify users are naturally more attracted towards the band's earlier, livelier work; particularly in the UK, where 'Twist and Shout', 'Love Me Do', and 'I Want To Hold Your Hand' nabbed top spots.

Spotify has also revealed that 65% of those listening to The Beatles were under the age of 34; with tracks being added to over 673k playlists in the last two days. So, that can officially shut down any arguments over the band facing any kind of irrelevance in the face of modern pop.

Here at the lists in full:

UK: Most streamed tracks by The Beatles on 24 and 25 December

1. Come Together
2. Hey Jude
3. Here Comes the Sun
4. Twist and Shout
5. Let It Be
6. I Want To Hold Your Hand
7. Help!
8. Love Me Do
9. I Feel Fine
10. She Loves You

GLOBAL: Most streamed tracks by The Beatles on 24 and 25 December

2. Let It Be
3. Hey Jude
4. Love Me Do

6. Here Comes The Sun

8. All You Need Is Love

These Are The Most-Streamed Beatles Songs So Far
BY CHARLOTTE GUNN
24TH DECEMBER 2015

Christmas came early last night for Beatles fans as the band's entire back-catalog was made available on streaming services around the world.

Fans can now stream the Beatles' 13 studio albums and two compilation albums on Apple Music, Spotify, Google Play, Amazon Prime, Slacker, Tidal, Groove, Rhapsody and Deezer.

Early figures from Spotify suggest that in less than 12 hours, Beatles songs have been streamed a huge 413,000 times.

The most-streamed tracks so far are:

1. Let It Be
2. Here Comes The Sun
3. Hey Jude
4. Twist and Shout
5. Come Together

But with currently less than 1000 streams each, it speaks volumes about the vast range of Beatles music, streamers are now delving into.

In an age when some of the music industry's biggest stars - namely Taylor Swift and Adele - are making a stand against music subscription services by withholding their music, this decision by the remaining members and heirs of The Fab Four makes a firm statement that digital music streaming is here - and it isn't going anywhere fast.

Two other rock greats - Led Zeppelin and AC/DC - also abandoned their no-streaming policy earlier in the year.
