Big surprise here -- The Beatles have been a big hit on streaming services since the group's catalog hit them on Christmas Eve.
In fact, the Fabs came out of the box with the top five most-streamed songs on Spotify -- "Come Together," "Hey Jude," "Here Comes The Sun," "Let It Be" and "Twist and Shout." Also drawing a lot of listens were "I Want To Hold Your Hand," "She Loves You" and "Help!," while "Blackbird" and "In My Life" were unique to Spotify's U.S. list of Top 10 Beatles streaming songs.
The group's 13 British studio albums, its Past Masters and 1 collections and its "Red" and "Blue" compilations are also streaming on Apple Music, Deezer, Google Play, Microsoft Groove, Napster/Rhapsody, Amazon Prime Music, Slacker Radio, and Tidal after ending a long holdout.
