Five Facts about Twist & Shout

- This was the last track recorded for Please Please Me.

- Famously left til last because John knew his voice would be shot after attempting this song. In the end they did 2 takes but kept the first one.

- John had a heavy cold for the session and had been taking Zubes; the cough sweets of the time all day. Tony Barrow's sleevenotes described it as "A stand out solo perfomance from John". He's right.

- Ian MacDonald in "Revolution in the Head" is quite taken. "Its remarkable for its time: raw to a degree unmatched by other white artists - and far too wild to be acceptable to the older generation. As such it became a symbolic feature of the group's act during Beatlemania: the song where parents, however liberal, feared to tread"

- Its the best track on the album… (according to our live blog editor!)
