I guess so. No history of any other artist has fascinated me as much as The Beatles whom I already had been fascinated by through most of my life without really knowing why.

That. Exactly that. They may not always be my favourite band but their story is certainly the most rewarding.

Such stats can be misleading. I will always have a special place in my heart for the Beatles, even though I've been listening mostly to David Bowie as of late.

Fair enough.  In my case it is a pretty good predictor.

Yeah, it depends on your listening/loving habits. Some people only like stuff when they're actively listening to it, but I have a sentimental journey loyalty to artists.

More like I've listened to the Beatles so much because they're my favorite.  I try to listen to other things too, but it is very difficult.

I used to be there, too. My obsessions ebb and flow, though, but I will always love the lads from Liverpool. heart
