The Beatles are reaching a new audience through streaming and listeners have an early verdict – "Come Together" is their favorite song from the Fab Four.Spotify, the largest streaming service, said that fans in the first three days had streamed Beatles songs 70 million times – which means that on average every user of the site listened to one Beatles song around the Christmas holiday.While the company did not offer analysis, the bluesy rock song from 1969 was the opener on "Abbey Road," The Beatles' best-selling album, so it may have benefited from listeners who immediately hit play on the album.Spotify said that 65 percent of its Beatles listeners were under age 34 – too young to have direct memories of the band that broke up in 1970 .
