Home Music Beatles: George Harrison Gets Last Laugh as “Here Comes the Sun” Most...

This is sort of poetic justice. The number 1 streamed Beatles song on Spotify is George Harrison’s “Here Comes the Sun.” The classic song from “Abbey Road” has 18 million plus streams in the short time the Beatles have been streaming.

The runners up are “Yesterday,” “Come Together,” “Let it Be,” “Hey Jude,” and “I want to Hold Your Hand.”

Spotify’s UK office sent out some stats this morning quickly picked up around the interwebs.

The top four albums are “1”– the greatest hits, “Abbey Road,” “The Beatles” (white album), and “Let it Be.”

Isn’t it interesting that the album considered most important– “Sgt. Pepper”– isn’t at the top of the list, nor any of its songs? I’m surprised.

Harrison’s frustration with being part of the Beatles was not getting enough of his songs on albums. As it turns out, quality overrules quantity as his achievements– “Something,” “While My Guitar Gently Weeps,” “Here Comes the Sun” — are standouts in the Beatles’ repertoire.

Rock on, George!
