MORE YOUNG PEOPLE STREAM THE FAB FOUR’S MUSIC IN 2018 THAN THOSE WHO WERE AROUND IN THE 1960S.
Here Comes The Sun has been named the most popular Beatles song of 2018, according to data about the UK’s music streaming audience.
The George Harrison-penned track has come out on top as the nation’s favourite song from the Fab Four, racking up more streams between January and November than any other, streaming service Deezer said.
Twist and Shout is in second place, Let It Be is third, Come Together is fourth and Hey Jude rounds off the top five.
Other songs in the top 20 include Day Tripper, I Want To Hold Your Hand, Penny Lane and While My Guitar Gently Weeps.
Deezer has also shared other streaming statistics to mark the 50th anniversary of the group’s The White Album, which was released November 22, 1968 – including the surprisingly young age of many listeners.
It has been found that more people under the age of 25 currently stream Beatles tracks than those who would have been around in their heyday.
