The Beatles made their legendary catalog available to streaming services on Christmas Eve, and after two days of streaming, Spotify offered up some preliminary numbers focusing on the Fab Four's most played tracks on the service. Looking at the streaming totals, "Come Together" is the world's favorite Beatles song, followed by "Let It Be" and "Hey Jude."

The Abbey Road opening track topped both the U.S. and the U.K. list of most streamed Beatles tracks, as well as the global list, based on streams accumulated over December 24th and 25th. The early stats show that American and British listeners gravitate toward the same Fab Four classics: "Hey Jude" is Number Two in both the U.K. and U.S., which have eight of out their Top 10 Beatles songs in common; only "Blackbird" and "In My Life" (U.S.) and "I Feel Fine" and "Love Me Do" (U.K.) differ on the two lists.
The results are a little bit different on the global list: "Come Together" is tops again, but "Let It Be" ranks as Number Two ahead of "Hey Jude." "Love Me Do," which didn't land on the American list after two days of streaming, is Number Four on the global list, which also features "All You Need Is Love," a track left off the American and British Top 10s.
In addition to the individual song streams, Spotify also provided some blanket stats that demonstrate the Beatles' impact on streaming: After only two days, Spotify users added the Beatles' songs to over 673,000 playlists. People under the age of 34 also made up 65 percent of people streaming the Beatles' music.
