Song facts

From Wikipedia:

Shout” is an American popular song, originally recorded by the Isley Brothers. Released in 1959, it was written by the brothers themselves as a call and response answer to Jackie Wilson’s “Lonely Teardrops“, which they would occasionally cover in live performances.

History

While the song did not reach higher than #47 on the Billboard Hot 100, it became the brothers’ first gold single on the basis of its longevity, and it became a much-covered tune, with many U.S. and international artists recording the song.

One month after the initial release, Johnny O’Keefe covered it in his Australian TV show Six O’Clock Rock, reaching #3 in Australia. He re-recorded the song in 1964, but it was only a minor hit. Joey Dee and the Starliters reached #6 with their recording of the song in 1962 (The Starlighters also worked the call-and-response portion of the song into its even bigger hit, “Peppermint Twist“), while the Isley Brothers’ version re-charted that same year at #94.

Scottish pop singer Lulu had a #7 UK hit with the song in 1964 (attributed to Lulu and the Luvvers) […] The Beatles included a live version of the song on their 1996 rarities compilation, Anthology 1. […]

From the Anthology 1 liner notes:

[…] Shout never made it from the Beatles’ early stage repertoire on to their discs, which makes this Around The Beatles recording especially rare. The Isley Brothers’ 1959 original was so long that it had to be split over two sides of a 45, called Shout – Part I and Shout – Part II. This Beatles recording is essentially Part II, with Paul, John, George and Ringo swapping the lead vocal role while raising and lowering the volume in keeping with the lyric.
