Which band member wrote the most of The Fab Four’s 310 songs? How many Beatles songs weren’t written about love? And how much did Ringo actually contribute to the band?
These questions were once fertile ground for many a furious pub debate, but now, in the glorious information age that we presently inhabit, we simply look to the internet for the definitive answers to these sorts of big questions.
And our search for Beatles knowledge has just dramatically shortened – may we present to you: the Beatles analysis graph.
Complied by analytical artist Adam E. McCann for the interactive data visualisation site Tableau, the Beatles Analysis visual is quite something: stocked full of mountains of data about almost everything Paul, John, George and even Ringo ever did, it reels through stats on lyrical vocabulary, song meanings, chart positions, and much, much more.
It truly is something that you could lose hours of your life to – so why not go ahead and do just that right now?
