Welcome to a new term of Listening Assignments! This week we're looking at the legendary British rock band, the Beatles. They became the most commercially successful and critically acclaimed acts of all time. This week we are listening to Twist and Shout. This song was actually a cover for the Beatles. It was released on their first album Please, Please Me and went up to number 2 on the US Pop Chart. It never reached number 1 as it was released during at time when the top 5 positions on the chart were all Beatles songs.
