Don’t know if you’ve heard, but THE BEATLES CATALOG IS STREAMING on Spotify, Apple Music, and seven other streaming music services. Are we excited? HELL YEAH.
This is such a big deal, even for those of us who’ve bought all the Beatles songs as albums, CDs, or downloads (probably all three, many times over). Because now we can listen to the Beatles the way we listen to most of our other favorite artists (well, not Adele or Taylor Swift… yet). We can add their albums to our streaming music playlists, bringing them with us everywhere without needing to carry gigs and gigs of downloaded music with us just for our Beatles collection (#BeatlePeopleProblems). We binge our music anyway, and now we can binge the Beatles at the same time we listen to the rest of the music we love.
You know what else makes this exciting? REBEAT can finally add Beatles music to our JUKEBOX playlists. Do you know how challenging it is to make epic classic rock playlists when you can’t include the Beatles? So to mark the momentous event, this playlist celebrates the streaming Beatles with songs that show just how ridiculously excited we are about this. Because we can.
1) “Good Day, Sunshine” (1966)
That’s the first thing I want to do. Take a walk in the sun while this song streams as part of my new Beatles playlist.
2) “Birthday” (1968)
Let’s celebrate birthdays. Let’s celebrate everything since we’re so excited to stream these songs!
3) “Come Together” (1969)
Come together at a party, the office, wherever. Just make sure you’ve got your streaming playlist with you, and it includes the Beatles.
4) “There’s a Place” (1963)
There is a place. In fact, there are nine of them: Spotify, Apple Music, Google Play, Amazon Prime Music, Tidal, Deezer, Microsoft Groove, Napster/Rhapsody and Slacker Radio. Go there now, and binge the Beatles.
5) “Getting Better” (1967)
The world got a little better when the Beatles started streaming. Or at least our playlists did.
6) “All Together Now” (1967)
One, two, three, four, can I have a little more… Beatles in my life? Yup.
7) “I Feel Fine” (1964)
I sure feel fine, when I hear that trademark feedback intro in my streaming playlist.
8) “Eight Days a Week” (1964)
This is how often you can listen to the Beatles on streaming media. I know I will.
9) “I’ve Got a Feeling” (1969)
Beatle People got a feeling deep inside, waiting for 12:01 a.m. on Christmas Eve, waiting for the streaming services to release the Beatles catalog. Oh yeah…
10) “All You Need Is Love” (1967)
Well, all you need is love… and more ways to listen to the Beatles.
Check out the rest of our celebratory Spotify playlist, and while you’re at it, get online and make one of your own, there or at any of the other streaming services. To quote Stella McCartney’s famous t-shirt, it’s about fucking time we can, right?
