The Beatles were a songwriting machine, everybody knows that. John, Paul, Ringo and George put out an incredible volume of material in their relatively short time ad a band, and sometimes it’s hard to keep track of the details behind each song. Who wrote what? What songs were more popular? Who wrote the most songs? What were they about?
All these questions have now been broken down and summarised in this epic Beatles songwriting infographic.
Got a spare few days? Go and grab your Beatles catalogue (digital, vinyl, whatever), park yourself in front of this epic infographic and find out everything you’ve ever wanted to know about their songwriting.
Created by artist Adam E. McCann for data visualisation site Tableau, the infographic is an incredibly detailed breakdown of the ins and outs of the nature of the Beatles’ songwriting and how the world received it.
