Best Covers: The Beatles “Twist & Shout”

L’any 1964 The Beatles treien el single “Twist & Shout” als E.U.A. La cançó era una versió de l’original publicada l’any 1961 pels Top Notes. La versió triada pel nostre il Dottore formava part del disc de debut dels Fab Four , Please Please Me.  Aquest àlbum de deu cançons fou gravat en deu dies i el productor George Martin va deixar la nostra versió de la setmana pel final de tot atès que sabia que la veu de John Lennon es veuria afectada amb la interpretació degut a un constipat.  La cançó va enfilar-se fins el top-2 de les llistes.
