In case you’ve been living under a rock or still haven’t allocated $10 a month for ad-free music streaming (which, same thing) The Beatles are now on Spotify as well as the other streaming services du jour. So, as I like to do, I gave each album a spin from start to finish, from their early days to their late, a few more than once (because, what a time), and made an Essential Beatles playlist.
Not only are playlists a good way to organize tracks I want to hear based on my mood or the season, they’re also a good way to have my favorite tracks from an artist handy in case I get passed the aux. In other words, these are the Beatles songs I feel like I need to have when I’m away from home. Insert your own joke about how rarely that is, and let me know if there are any you think I missed.
