In 1959, the Isley Brothers recorded a song called Shout. They wrote it as a response to a song by Jackie Wilson, namely Lonely Teardrops. It reached 47 in the US, but was already covered a lot. Johnny O’Keefe took a chance in Australia, Joey Dee & the Starlighters went to number 6 with it, Lulu took it to number 7 in the UK, the Shangri-Las made a cover, as well as the Kingsman and many others. Even the Beatles, Bon Jovi and Bruce Springsteen did a version of it! And the Trammps used it in 1975 as one of their first disco hits! Enjoy
The Trammps- Shout
Did I already introduce you to this great eighties rock band? No, I didn’t. And that’s why I’m doing it now. Actually, I like the music of Bon Jovi a lot, it is powerful and just as rock should be according to me. One of my absolute favourites of Bon Jovi is the song of the day. I came across an article on one of my favourite blogs, and that’s why I thought about Bon Jovi as song of the day. Read this article, because just like me, there are still a lot of fans of Bon Jovi, but they are hidden….
And of course, enjoy
