CSPC: The Beatles Popularity Analysis

Streaming Part 2 – For Sale… & Stream

The string of 1 million plus plays songs continues with the full track lists of both Beatles For Sale and Help!. The former lacks a bit of big hits with only Eight Days a Week closing in 15 million. This implies a relatively low 38,000 equivalent album sales.

At 125,000 units the latter is much stronger. Help! achieves this total thanks to the title track at 26 million, Ticket To Ride at 18 million and of course the cult Yesterday which rides high at 43 million.

Update would be nice 🙂

Hi MJD,
the RIAA certifications on red album and blue album also include download and streaming, seen how much higher are they ?

I’ve just realized that the physical single sales of Beatles For Sale and A Hard Day’s Night are swapped.

I think this should get an update. It’s been 3 years and a lot of things have happened like the anniversary editions of Abbey Road and the White Album. (Also pls do George and Ringo’s CSPC 🙂 )

I’m positive they’ll be well above 420 mill after the update.

Beatles featuring Tony Sheridan is included in the compilation section on page 46

Amazing work, congratulations! However you’ve missed one important EP release. The Beatles fifth Ep release, Long Tall Sally, which was released in Britain in June 1964 and is another reported global million seller.
