Diva / Mensch pair for Sept 29, 2021

This week, two songs from *Twist and Shout:*

Diva: "Twist and Shout" Mensch: "Baby, It's You"

The "Twist and Shout" video is from a royal command performance, when John makes that cheeky comment, asking people in the cheaper seats to clap their hands, and the other people, "Just rattle your jewelry." And "Baby, It's You" was written by my beloved Bacharach and David! Burt was always very proud that the Beatles recorded that song.
