CSPC: The Beatles Popularity Analysis

Streaming Part 3 – Pivotal Years

Both Rubber Soul and Revolver contain two songs a piece at 20 million streams give or take a few millions. This is quite similar, or even slightly lower, than the previous five albums.

There is still one difference though. While the early albums have all their tracks at 1 million or more, each song from Rubber Soul and Revolver are on 2,2 million plus. If topping 3 million was the trademark of hits within’ their early years material, it turns out to be the norm on those records.

Once again, hits sell better than consistent album tracks still. At 99,000 and 104,000 equivalent album sales respectively, they fell short of Please Please Me and Help! which contain bigger smashes.

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 🙂 )

Dan

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.
