CSPC: The Beatles Popularity Analysis

Streaming Part 6 – The Long and Winning Road

From Abbey Road, you can forget about Her Majesty which runs under 30 seconds and thus doesn’t trigger a count when playing it. Just like all those interludes, there is a few streams still displayed, possibly from users with a specific account or with some calculation involved.

Back to proper comments, Abbey Road blockbuster is home of absolutely massive hits, Come Together and Here Comes The Sun. The latter is the most streamed Beatles song. Combined, they account for 115 million Spotify plays. The album as a whole is fairly huge with its weakest songs on their way to break the 5 million mark soon. One more time, we can’t elude from commenting on songs length. The last six songs pre-Her Majesty total the minuscule 9 minutes 28 seconds – average of 1:34 – which boosts considerably album tracks. Nevermind, at 240,000 equivalent album sales, its results are pretty healthy.

The lead track of Let It Be is massive on its own too, up to 50 million. An additional 3 more hits are over 10 million while tracks all top 3 million. This puts Let It Be on 133,000 equivalent album sales from streaming, the 3rd highest total of the band.

Update would be nice 🙂


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.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
