THE ORIGINALS: SONGS THE BEATLES COVERED: “TWIST AND SHOUT”- THE ISLEY BROTHERS

The Originals: Songs The Beatles Covered:” Twist And Shout”- The Isley Brothers. I only have to think about half a second on the question- what is the best song that The Beatles covered- it is the final song on their debut album Please Please Me- with John Lennon’s amazing vocal. The album was recorded in one day and it was the last song recorded- Lennon put everything he had left into “Twist And Shout”- a memorable vocal performance. The original came a year earlier with The Isley Brothers- it was their first Top 20 hit on the Billboard Hot 100. “Twist And Shout” was written by Bert Berns and Phil Medley.

  1. I’m with you, Hans, “Twist and Shout” by The Beatles is a great cover. In general, I like their covers of classic rock & roll tunes, particularly “Long Tall Sally”, “Roll Over Beethoven” and “Rock & Roll Music.”
