The Beatles

What can I say about The Beatles?. The most iconic band ever.

For this visualization I took the lyrics of 290 Beatles song’s and I analyzed the most used words. Do you guess wich one is the most used?… by far: LOVE.

The most used: love (701), know (464), oh (347), baby (293), go (281), well (264), say (259), come (251), get (239), can (232), want (226), now (225), got (222), see (216), like (199), yeah (186), just (184), girl (180), hey (173), tell (167), little (162), day (160), one (157), way (154), make (153), time (147), back (144), take (130), said (127), feel (125), good (125), right (125), look (121), never (121), cry (120), home (117), need (115), long (110), yeh (109), night (107), things (105), think (104), man (103), leave (99), waiting (94), please (93), mine (91), yes (89), hold (88), away (87), better (86), try (86), dance (84), heart (83), much (80), mind (76), ever (73)…

In the first image the words size are proportional to the number of times a word appears. In the next images the most used are bigger but there is no relationship between the word size and the visualization data.

Lot of songs, lot of data… I will post again about The Beatles.

  2. Hello Juan. Nice work with the word images. There is a nice balance between readability and clarity of the base image. Keep it up!
