If you're a digital music freak like me, you understand that The Beatles are absolutely, without a doubt, the largest gap when it comes to downloadable and streaming music content on the Internet.
I have built many playlists around this unfortunate fact.
Try doing a number one hits, or a most influential playlist without the Beatles. It's like going to a football game without the fourth quarter, or going on a date without a kiss. Sure it can be fun, but it's always incomplete.
The Beatles are, after all, the undisputed most important band to ever breathe oxygen on planet Earth.
For this playlist I faced the problem head on. I looked at all 21 number one hits the Beatles had in America and then found the very best cover versions available on Rhapsody.
I have assembled these covers in chronological order, starting with the Beatles very first hit in America, "I Want To Hold Your Hand" and ending with their last, "The Long And Winding Road".
The end result is an interesting mixed bag of Beatles interpretations and some of the most easily recognized melodies in history.
It will have to keep us content until that glorious day when the Beatles catalogue is available online.
