‘Come Together’ is Beatles’ most streamed song on Spotify

Beatles fans were certainly in the mood to “Come Together” this holiday season.

Two days after Spotify released the Fab Four’s entire catalog, the popular music service told Rolling Stone that “Come Together” was the band’s most-streamed song in the United States, the United Kingdom and worldwide on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

“Hey Jude,” meanwhile, was the consensus number two in both America and the UK, though the seminal Paul McCartney hit ranked third on the global list, behind “Let It Be.”

Perhaps most surprisingly, “Love Me Do” was the fourth-most streamed Beatles song globally in the band’s first two days on the site — despite the fact that it didn’t crack America’s Top 10.

The Beatles’ songs have been popular on music streaming services.

“Here Comes the Sun” placed third in America, with “Twist and Shout” and “Let It Be” rounding out the domestic Top 5.

The American and United Kingdom lists were extremely similar, with eight songs appearing on both. “Blackbird” and “In My Life” made the U.S. Top 10 but not the United Kingdom’s list, which instead included “I Feel Fine” and “Love Me Do.”

Spotify’s addition of The Beatles’ library was a major acquisition, as decision-makers for the iconic English rock group has been hesitant to release the band’s music on streaming services.

The addition proved to be an immediate and resounding success on Spotify, as songs by The Beatles were already added to more than 673,000 playlists in the first two days.
