“Twist And Shout” is one of those classic rock ‘n’ roll songs that has been covered by hundreds and probably thousands of bands. It was a song recorded by The Beatles before they became famous. Issued by the small Tollie label in the United States, it spent four weeks at number two on the BILLBOARD MAGAZINE Pop Singles Chart during the spring of 1964.
That was not the end of the story, however, as 24 years later it returned to the American charts. It was a featured song in the popular movie, FERRIS BUELLER’S DAY OFF, and was pulled from the soundtrack and released as a single. This time it reached number 23 during its 15 weeks on the charts.
It remains one of the better covers of the old rock song.
