The four-piece were behind LPs such as Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, Let It Be and Abbey Road – the latter of which is home to songs Here Comes The Sun and Come Together, among others.

In fact, the song Let It Be (which can be heard on the LP of that name) had seven per cent of the BBC sample opting for it and was placed third in the poll, behind ballad Yesterday.

That song gained ten per cent of votes, with Hey Jude one per cent ahead on 11 per cent.
