Spotify has revealed the 10 most streamed tracks by The Beatles over Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, following their introduction to the streaming service at 00.01am on Christmas Eve. 

Following a lengthy boycott of music streaming services, the majority of The Beatles' back catalogue became available to almost every major platform including Spotify, Apple Music, Google Play, TIDAL, and Amazon Prime. 

Much to fans' delight, the endless bickering over the definitive Beatles track might have now found some conclusion: Spotify has released a list of the Top 10 tracks streamed both globally and in the UK, with the grooves of 'Come Together' topping both lists. 

What's sure to generate a little conversation amongst more dedicated followers is the revelation that Spotify users are naturally more attracted towards the band's earlier, livelier work; particularly in the UK, where 'Twist and Shout', 'Love Me Do', and 'I Want To Hold Your Hand' nabbed top spots. 

Spotify has also revealed that 65% of those listening to The Beatles were under the age of 34; with tracks being added to over 673k playlists in the last two days. So, that can officially shut down any arguments over the band facing any kind of irrelevance in the face of modern pop.
