SINGLE RECORDED ON THIS DAY IN 1963

John Lennon‘s voice was practically fried the night they recorded "Twist and
Shout." He had a bad cold and producer George Martin knew they didn’t have
much time to nail down the vocal. Lennon gargled milk and took a cough drop
before stepping into the booth and delivered his throat-shredding take on the
Isley Brothers’ classic. "That song nearly killed me," Lennon said. "My voice
wasn’t the same for a long time after; every time I swallowed, it was like
sandpaper. I was always bitterly ashamed of it, because I could sing better
than that, but now it doesn’t bother me." (Rolling Stone)

"Twist and Shout" was the only million-selling Beatles single that was a cover
record, and the only Beatles cover single to reach the Top 10 on a national
record chart. The song failed to hit #1 because the Beatles had another song
occupying the top spot, "Can’t Buy Me Love".

The instrumental track for this song was recorded first at Gold Star Studios
and took 21 takes. The vocals were recorded next over two sessions at
Columbia with the first session taking place on March 10, which also saw
vocal work on "I’m Waiting for the Day", "God Only Knows" and "I Just
Wasn’t Made for These Times

The released single entered the Billboard chart on July 30 and remained
