Isley Brothers ( The ) - SHOUT

First performance: 17/07/1982


Coverinfo

Bruce covered the song 100 times :
 
He also used 'shout' as a brief instrumental snippet during "A Love So Fine" . However the song is still clearly in the early stages of development since the chorus is sung "a night like this", rather than "a love so fine." It's worth noting that by the time the next show came around at Avery Fisher Hall, Bruce had changed the chorus to the familiar "a love so fine."

In 1974 he played 'a love so fine' 11 times with a snippet of 'shout' 
In 1975 he played 'a love so fine' 12 times with a snippet of 'shout'
 
In 1977 he played 'shout' as a snippet within 'soothe me' With Southside Johnny & The Asbury Jukes.

Songinfo

"Shout" is a popular American 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. 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.
 
 
 

Bruce on the artist

Lyrics

Weeeeeeellll,
You know you make me wanna shout
Kick my heels up & shout
Throw my hands up & shout
Throw my hands back & shout
Come on now, (shout)
Don't forget to say you will
Don't forget to say yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
(Say you will)
Say it right now, baby (say you will)
Come on, come on (say you will)
Say it, oh-eeeee (say you will)
Come on now (say)
Say that you love me (say)
Say that you need me (say)
Say that you want me (say)
You wanna please me (say)
(x3): Come on now (say)

I still remember (shoo be doo wa)
When you used to be 9 years old (shoo be doo wa)
Yeah yeah I was in love with you (shoo be doo wa)
From the bottom of my soul (shoo be doo wa)
Yeah yeah now that you've grown up (shoo be doo wa)
& old enough to know (shoo be doo wa)
You wanna leave me (shoo be doo wa)
You wanna let me go (shoo be doo wa shoo wop)

I want you to know
I said I want you to know right now
You've been good to me, baby
Better than I've been to myself
Hey hey, & if you ever leave me
I don't want nobody else
Hey hey, I said I want you to know
Yeah, I said I want you to know right now
Yeah yeah, you know you make me wanna shout
Yeah yeah (shout), yeah yeah yeah (shout)
All right (shout), all right (shout)
Come on now (shout), come on now (shout)

Throw my hands back & shout
Kick my heels up & shout
