While there's definitely a focus on the hits, a few unlikely selections ("Blackbird" and "In My Life") have been surprisingly popular.

The Beatles hit streaming services around the world Thursday (Dec. 24) for the first time in a long-awaited move that was billed as a holiday gift to their fans, and unsurprisingly, listeners were excited — in the first two days of streaming, Beatles songs have been added to more than 673,000 playlists on Spotify alone.

Who's been listening to the legendary group so far? The stats suggest that though their heyday came about 50 years ago, 65 percent of Beatles listeners on Spotify are under the age of 34.
