isley brothers early 60s 385x280 Twist And Shout Trumps Burt Bacharach For The Isley BrothersYeah Yeah Yeah - [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”] The Beatles[/lastfm] version of Twist and Shout trumped the  [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Isley Brothers[/lastfm] original on the strength of John Lennon’s searing vocal.  But the Isley’s version can still hold its own, especially when you consider the fact that it was originally designated as a flip side to a [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Burt Bacharach[/lastfm] song.  It that had happened, [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]The Beatles[/lastfm] may have never heard the song in the first place, and we would have been deprived of one of the greatest rock and roll vocals of all time.
