  • Jennifur Sun from RamonaHeard Paul and company's version first but prefer the Swinging Blue Jeans version the best. Would have loved to have heard Paul and their lead singer together on this tune.
  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn February 1st 1962, the Beatles performed "Hippy Hippy Shake" at the Oasis Club in Manchester (this was their first appearance outside of a Liverpool venue)...
    Two years later on March 1st, 1962 the Swinging Blue Jeans' covered version entered Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart; and on March 29th it peaked at #24 (for 2 weeks) and spent 8 weeks on the Top 100...
    The group's only two other Top 100 records were also covered versions; Little Richard's "Good Golly Miss Molly" (at #43) and Betty Everett's "You're No Good" (at #97).
  • Herald from Los Angeles, Cathe Live at the BBC version of this by the Beatles is one bloody good rocker!
