Shout And Shimmy. Any relation to the similar sounding Shout by Lulu?
What's the story?
a james brown cover... i havent listened to it for a while but cant remember it sounding too much like the lulu song
Same chord progression, same rhythm - hell the only real difference is that one has the word "shimmy" in it.
And yet, I can't find anything that says one is a cover of the cover, or if they're connected at all. Even bearing in mind that it was far more common back then for lots of songs to follow the same basic formula (a lá 12-bar blues), it's still pretty perplexing.
No, hence the different title

dang, I just made another search result for myself every time I google that record. I'm going back up there to deliberately misspell it
