Twist and Shout...

Today in rock history, the Isley Brothers released “The Angels Cried” in 1957. The song for Teenage Records was their first single; it had a doo wop flavor to it, and was backed by “The Cow Jumped Over the Moon.” Neither track was a hit and they soon moved on to RCA Records where they recorded their infectious track, “Shout.” Eventually, in 1962, “Twist and Shout” cracked the top 20 and began an intermittent run of hits for the New Jersey trio, that extended into the 1970s. The Beatles covered “Twist and Shout” early in their career. The day the song was recorded, Lennon was suffering from a cold, and was drinking milk and sucking on cough drops to soothe his throat. Even so, he produced a memorable vocal performance, a raucous, dynamic rocker. He later said his voice was not the same for a long time afterward, and that "every time [he] swallowed, it felt like sandpaper." Another famous appearance of an Isley Brothers tune was when “Shout!” was performed by the fictional band Otis Day and the Knights in the 1978 movie Animal House. Though Day's voice was dubbed, both the musical and visual performances were unforgettable, and a record release also became a hit. So let’s hear it for the Isley Brothers, who are one of the few groups to have long-running success on the Billboard charts placing a charted single in every decade since 1959 and as of 2006 was still charting successful albums performing under a repertoire of doo-wop, R&B, rock 'n' roll, soul, funk, disco, urban adult contemporary and hip-hop soul in the last six decades with a variation of lineups ranging from a quartet to a trio to a sextet to finally a duo. Here the Isley's perform "Shout!" in 1959. Would that all of us could be this tall and skinny! Thanks, as always, to www.garylessard.com and www.wikipedia.org for the info, and keep on rockin’!

What a great song! “You been good to me baby --better than I been to myself, hey! hey!” indeed. Would that we could all do the splits like that too.
