The Beatles were, and still are, the greatest pop music phenomenon the world is ever likely to know. Such was their quality and fame the music and memories still live on today. After years of hard graft in relative obscurity, the four Liverpool lads conquered the world; for three years in the 60s Beatlemainia swept the globe. Even after the touring stopped, the music kept rolling.
The Rolling Stones had eight Number One hits, ABBA had nine - the Beatles scored 17!
