Beatles' most streamed song
The Beatles are reaching a new audience through streaming and listeners have an early verdict: Come Together is their favourite song by the Fab Four.
The best-selling band in history ended a long boycott of streaming on Thursday. Spotify, the largest streaming service, said fans had streamed Beatles songs 70 million times in the first three days, which means that on average, every user of the site listened to one Beatles song around the Christmas holiday.
Come Together was the most popular, with more than 2.3 million streams on Spotify as of Monday. The service said 65 per cent of its Beatles listeners were under the age of 34 , too young to have direct memories of the band that broke up in 1970.
