Why not create a playlist for the greatest band of the 20th century. With so many hits there would not be a problem creating a playlist. It would be crazy not to do this.
NOTE FROM SONGPOP STAFF: We love the Beatles! It's one of the bands we're working actively to bring you in SongPop!
Okay guys, let's make this interesting. Both requests for pop-rock legends Beatles and Queen are hanging here for a year. Let's try to convince them by leaving SongPop, if they don't care enough to fulfill our wish in a reasonable time...
I've loved the Beatles since I first saw them on the Ed Sullivan show in 1964. I was 5 years old. I, like many here, would love a Beatles playlist but it probably won't happen. However maybe Songpop will do a Beatles Covers playlist. I know it isn't what we really wanted, but it is better than nothing. I made the suggestion so please guys, vote it up and maybe it will happen. Also if you have song suggestions for it, please add them there. There are plenty of artists that have covered Beatles songs and some are really good. So please help.
SO , ASIDES FROM SP STAFF, DO USERS ACTUALLY READ PREVIOUS COMMENTS OR DO THEIR RESEARCH BEFORE COMMENTING???
1. The Beatles are one of the biggest kept holy grails in the world (the Let It Be film hasn't ever been officially re-released in the UK since it came out in the 1970s) and only recently have had iTunes and official games statuses brought out (it also took years to rip us all off with "remasters") with rights owned by big bucks stars who if SP agree a big enough deal with, will be happy to give their songs over too. I'm sure (as they mention above) SP would LOVE to have them on here, but it's just not that simple. THIS HAS BEEN MENTIONED SEVERAL TIMES.
2. @Japp "Songpop can not deliver on the big artists and groups. There will problably never be a Beatles playlist,. As there is no Neil Young, no Randy Newman, no David Bowie, no Johnny Cash, no Lou Reed, no anything really. So they are endlessly recycling the same few songs from relatively unknown artists in an endless variation of playlistnames. I am very disappointed with Songpop".
Randy Newman? Really???? But seriously, there have been specialist playlists for Bowie and Cash for at least six months now. Do some digging in the shop, fella (and they're actually quite good too - a wide spectrum - something SP have actually got right for once).

I've just posted on Paul McCartney's fanpage on Facebook about supporting a playlist with Paul's songs: https://www.facebook.com/PaulMcCartney/posts/10152048304748313
would be great if you guys could go and like my post, let them see how much we want a Beatles or Macca playlist :)))
just discovered the "Rock legends" playlist has a live version of "Let it be" by Macca!! :D thank you SP !!! :D :D :D
The Beatles, Queen and the Rolling Stones. We want the real legends of music, not flash in the pan nothings that nobody will remember in 20 years.
It isn't just the Beatles that desperately needs to be on SongPop but Led Zeppelin & the Eagles.
hey Songpop, would be a great idea to release a Beatles playlist NOW as Paul McCartney's new solo album, "NEW", is out on October 14th !!!
guys, please support the Paul McCartney playlist idea!! https://songpop.zendesk.com/entries/22574757-Paul-McCartney-solo-Playlist
I grew up listening to the Beatles, paid more attention to them than homework, it would be nice to have them added to the list
Well i think that would be nice
That would be nice
there's been a discussion about copyright here in this very thread... all people have to do is scroll down and read it.
anyways, when they put the "planned" tag on this playlist suggestion, I thought the issue had finally been solved. but if it hasn't been solved, why the heck keep people in the dark.
espeket, I think there are many people who don't know that. I agree it is frustrating about Songpop saying one thing then changing it. I was excited when I saw a Beatles list was planned then disappointed when they changed their minds. Same with Queen, it said planned then not. Thanks for posting that link. Wow I had no idea that a music copyright in the U.S. lasts 95 years. I remember there was talk about some of Elvis's music becoming public domain but they must have been referring to Europe.
yeah, everybody knows that. but why put it in the "planned" category then or write "we're working on it" blah blah blah. it's frustrating. just say "NO, we can't do that". stop messing.
btw: http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/the-beatles-love-me-do-hits-... :)
It is probably due to copyright issues. When the band broke up, the catalog was auctioned off. It fell into the hands of Michael Jackson, Sony and other parties. The former Beatles do not even own much of their own music anymore. So sad that the legacy of the Beatles is controlled by greedmongers.
why off the "planned" list now? please, SP did you change your mind? :(((
We really need a Beatles playlist!
seria bueno que coloquen un pack de canciones de los beatles
When Are You Going To Have A Beatles Playlist? I Love Songpop and I think you need a Beatles Playlist They have so much music they are an icon.
Leuk Beatles, als verjaardags kado voor mijn songpop maatje J
Ya,good suggestion...please add the beatles playlist....and also Bee Gees and michael jackson....
i'd like to see a Beatles playlist
seria lo maximo.. una lista de the beatles.... si es asi deberia ser la mas cara de todas las listas!!
Yes, please add The Beatles playlist. This will be my dream come true!!
Please, please us! THE BEATLES !--Ivy
Definitely Beatles. Also Queen and the Rolling Stones. How about Johnny Cash and related music like the Carter family? A playlist for American Idol and the Voice would be awesome as well. Most of the music I hear on Songpop seems to be coming from Greatest Hits albums. There are a lot of awesome more obscure songs you can use and they would be appreciated. Queen for instance, has a huge catalog of music. Freddie Mercury made an entire opera album with Monserrat Caballe but so far I've only heard one song from the Greatest Hits album.
Oh, we certainly need a Beatles playlist!
We need a the Beatles playlist.
You guys don't realize this, these artists that have special playlists obviously pay for the promotion. Why else would artists like Olly Murs and Wilco get playlists over artists like The Beatles and Michael Jackson? I don't think The Beatles need that much promotion. You might have also noticed that there are no Beatles songs anywhere in SongPop. This is because their music comes at a premium, after all it took forever to get to iTunes and it's not on streaming music services like Spotify. So a Beatles playlist isn't likely to happen.
BEATLES, BEATLES /O/
Again, I'm sure SP would love to add this playlist but it's all about wonga isn't it? Not to mention rights societies, etc. Remember how long it took to get official MP3s of Beatles albums?? Plus people like Olly Murs, Train, etc, etc all need the publicity so their companies pay for them to have specialist playlists on here, I don't think Beatles need much publicity and with their elite Rock Band game, I doubt this is high priority. Be patient, it'll happen! Let them sort out the problems with exisiting playlists like Britpop, House and Techno first (which are completely and very clumsily bad or wrong at the moment).
O SongPop está ficando cada vez mais chato e sem graça, daqui a pouco vou parar de jogar isso porque não tem a lista dos Beatles. (The game is getting increasingly boring and bland, soon I'll stop playing it because it has no a list of the Beatles.)

Beatles, Beatles, Beatles, Beatles!
Yes!!! I would pay actual money for this!
most definantly the beatles would be awsome
acho que vou parar de jogar por causa que ainda não fizeram a lista dos beatles (I think I'll stop playing because they have not yet made the list of beatles)
the beatles playlist would be great ! hope it will come throug immediately :)
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PUT THE BEATLES ON A PLAYLIST
pleeeeease. I was just going through the list and was like, where the fuq are the beatles?!
isn't this one down to rights though??
This should have been a no brainer ! Considering that the Beatles are the best of all time. Look what is around these days it would make a grown man cry.
they won't pay for the licence
I want a beatles playlist
this wuld be a great playlist..and since u obviously wont need to guess artists, they shuld make it so we guess the yr the songs were released.
want an opponent every second? Try typing in popular names, like John H., Mary B, beatlesfan1, songpop2, songpop3, sunnyday, lovethis, etc.
I have done this about 50 times and landed 3 opponents - I actually landed an opponent from London (I am in NY) and they play me all the time - I get to see the London, GB "80's British Classics" list - which is very cool . . .
again - click on find a person, then in "username" type the most popular names, phrases, etc. into the username area and by trial and error, you will find people . . . crazy cool!
A Beatles playlist would be great!!!
maybe it's kinda hard to get permit from Apple Records... :(
Yeeessss..... need Beatles playlist soooo much, that would be really awsome.. please please please....
A Beatles playlist would be awesome...
I know that The Beatles aren't a commercial band, (well, thanks to Michael Jackson & his greediness they were later on), but if Sony will allow "Revolution" to be a stupid Nike commercial or "Good Day Sunshine" to be a credit card, shall I go on? Then why can't the FANS enjoy playing their songs in a game? I know they would be making money off it if it were allowed, Lord knows they've made billions & billions of dollars off of them the past 30 years. Anyway, I think that if enough people bitch about not having them on songpop then maybe some of the corporate squares will go ahead & allow it. I guess we'll see...
Beatles playlist must be exists!!! Also i' ve made a Oasis playlist, you can check it here : https://songpop.zendesk.com/entries/22907456-oasis-playlist and vote it please =)
Totally need some Beatles - is it a licensing issue?
yes beatles or do they cost too much
I'm pretty sure it's a rights issue as well. I think its the same reason that so many song clips on here aren't like the original release.
Would love to see a beatles playlist. Hope it will happen soon.
You are always adding Country this and Country that...there are like 5 different kinds of Country music.
I hear George Harrison (who I love), but never the whole band....You have a Bon Jovi, Billy Joel even Carrie Underword (hers costs coins)...You have Decades 20's-40's...Decades 60's-90's
It's time we started hearing from one of the greatest bands to bring the British Invasion to America...PLEASE!!!!!!!
