As of December 24, 2015 the media gave us the best Christmas Present we would ask for: the world’s top band, The Beatles, streaming on Streaming Services. They will now be available on nine subscription streaming music services: Spotify, Apple Music, Google Play, Amazon Prime Music, Tidal, Deezer, Microsoft Groove, Napster/Rhapsody and Slacker Radio. You can listen wherever and whenever. There are 17 albums available for you to listen to: “Please Please Me”, “With The Beatles”, “1”, “Abbey Road”, “The Beatles [The White Album]”, “The Beatles 1962-1966”, “The Beatles 1967-1970”, “Beatles For Sale”, “A Hard Day’s Night”, “Help!”, “Let It Be”, “Magical Mystery Tour”, “Past Masters”, “Revolver”, “Rubber Soul”, “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” and “Yellow Submarine”. Their best-hit songs are on there, too. Songs such as: “Hey Jude”, “Yellow Submarine”, “Let It Be”, “Come Together”, “Help!.” The most streamed song is “ Come Together”, the lead singer being John Lennon. The song does not really have any meaning to it, it is random, just like every other Beatles song. If you have not got into The Beatles very much, this is a great way! Go to the Artist page on the streaming devices and just start listening to them. You will get sucked into the wonder that is The Beatles. Their genre is classic rock. They have a huge variety of the type of music they make. They have songs about love, changing the world, being happy and all these others. There is just a huge variety. They have two songs that are heavy metal: Revolution (Hey Jude album) and Helter Skelter(The Beatles[The White Album]). Revolution is about changing the world and giving peace to everyone. Helter is about a girl. Every single Beatle has written a hit single for the group. John Lennon wrote “Come Together” and “Help!.” Paul McCartney wrote “Let It Be” and “Hey Jude.” George Harrison wrote “Here Comes The Sun.” And Ringo Starr wrote “Octopus’s Garden.”
There is now a Beatles Vevo Channel on YouTube for you to view! It is has nine music videos for you to watch, one of them not available to the United States Of America, only in the United Kingdom.
