Isley Brothers - Twist and Shout

Covers and covers of covers. Here's the chronology of this song: 

The Top Notes, early 1961 (and it sucks, except for the King Curtis sax solo); The Isley Brothers, 1962, first top twenty on the pop charts for them; The Beatles, later on, copied note for note from the Isley Brothers, including the "woooooo!"

I hate it when the text plays those games, but I don't have the energy to deal with it right now.
