Charting the Beatles

Neat set of pictographs about The Beatles. Love this one:

Song Keys

The shape of these pictographs is defined by what keys the songs were recorded in for each album. The relative distribution of keys (with mid-song key changes considered) have been mapped over a graph framework based on the Circle of Fifths. The pictographs are in order of album recording.

Check out Revolver and Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.
