The Beatles' Top 100 Songs

In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Beatles’ arrival in the U.S., the DMDB is updating a list originally posted on its Facebook page on 8/27/2010. This list was compiled with three components. First, the DMDB has an overall song list of songs by the Beatles and everyone else. The points garnered by Beatles’ songs on those lists are one of the components. Next, the chart success, sales figures, and airplay are figured in to gauge the most commercially successful songs. The last component is an aggregate of 45 lists (see links at the bottom of the page) which specifically rank Beatles’ songs.
