SINGLE RELEASED ON THIS DAY IN 1964

 

The Beatles cover song, “Twist and Shout” was released with "There’s a
Place
" as its B-side, by Chicagobased Vee-Jay Records on the Tollie label,
it reached number 2 on April 4, 1964, during the week that the top five spots
on the chart were all Beatles singles (in the Cashbox singles chart for the
same week, "Twist and Shout" was No. 1). In the U.S., "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".
