Twist & Shout - The Beatles

Twist & Shout - The Beatles
"Twist and Shout" is a 1961 song written by Phil Medley and Bert Berns (later credited as "Bert Russell"). It was originally recorded by the Top Notes, but it did not become a hit in the record charts until it was reworked by the Isley Brothers in 1962. The Beatles' rendition of "Twist and Shout" was released on their first UK album Please Please Me.
The song was released as a single in the US on March 2, 1964, with "There's a Place" as its B-side. It was released by Chicago-based Vee-Jay Records on the Tollie label and reached number two on April 4, during the week that the top five places on the chart were all Beatles singles. It was the only million-selling Beatles single in the U.S. that was a cover song, and the only Beatles cover single to reach the Top 10 on a national record chart. The song failed to hit number one because the group's own followup single "Can't Buy Me Love" held the spot.

The video was performed Live On The Ed Sullivan Show at february 23 of 1964.
