And the most streamed Beatles song is?

“Come Together,” off the 1969 album Abbey Road.

And hey, look at that: The Beatles are absolutely killing it after their music came to every streaming service under the sun on Christmas Eve. As of Monday afternoon Dec. 28, five days after The Beatles catalog arrived, more than 2.8 million Spotify users have streamed “Come Together.”

Also popular are two title tracks: “Let It Be” (1970) and “Hey Jude” (1968), which have amassed 2.4 million listens and 2 million listens, respectively. Spotify’s listing of the top 10 “popular” songs is filled with songs we all know (and probably sang with mom and dad in the car during our childhood): “Here Comes the Sun,” “Yesterday,” “Blackbird” and “All You Need Is Love,” among others.

Spotify CEO and founder Daniel Ek noted in a new blog post that more than 70 million of The Beatles’ songs streamed in the first three days after the catalog launched. He added that, based on Spotify’s user stats, 65% of listeners were under 34.
