Twist and Shout

I was going to save this for a future "60s Friday" post but since I'm going to be away for 2 weeks and posting might be intermittent, if at all, I decided to share it today.

It's an oldie but a goodie from The Beatles early in their career, followed by an almost equally good cover of the song by The Who in the twilight of theirs (in Toronto in 1982 on one of those rare occasions when bassist John Entwhistle sings!). Shake it up baby, now!





Oh and if you're wondering if I'll be thinking of you while I'm suckin' back a cool one while I'm deep sea fishing, suit yourself. See ya in a couple of weeks.

You had me at Beatles. Its an obvious lip synch. McCartney looks like the only one who is enjoying it: which is why he outlived the other two, imo.

I think the reason Entwhistle did this song is that it really tears up the vocal cords. Would save the main voices.

Lidian: Yeah, aren't they. I was considerably impressed with the Who clip.

Looking forward to 2 weeks of sun and sand. But will be a big test to see if I can stay off the computer!

Goose: It really is amazing how many of these clips were lipsynched...years before Milli Vanilli!
