When the Beatles’ ‘The Beatles’ Came to Town’ Is the Perfect Song for Summer
The Beatles were already famous for their infectious pop tunes, but in 1970 they introduced the idea of ‘Summer Time’ by releasing ‘The Hits’ on a singles-only EP.
In the decades since, ‘The Beach Boys’ and ‘The Rolling Stones’ have played with the concept, but ‘The Hills Have Eyes’ is arguably the closest the group has come to a hit.
‘The hits’ are the most recognizable lyrics of ‘The Stones’ catalogue, and are used in their songs like ‘Hey Jude’ and, well, ‘Hey Ella.’
It’s not often you see the band’s songs pop up on the Billboard Hot 100 as they were only charted once in the Top 20 in the ’70s and ’80s.

‘Hey!’ was also released on the Summer Songs chart in 1977.
The band played to the crowds at Summerfest in England and played with a crowd of over 30,000 people to sell out the show.
They also played to a crowd at the MTV Video Music Awards in the summer of 1978, and a year later, their biggest show ever was at Wembley Stadium.
They were on a world tour when the Beatles released ‘The New York Session’ on March 29, 1980.
