This song was performed in the set The Beatles played on the Ed Sullivan show on February 9th, 1964, which kicked off Beatlemania in the United States. You could dive in on the significance of The Beatles to pop music (Who were their influences? Whom did they influence? What was Beatlemania like and what influence did it have on the band?). Shaw builds harmonies on “I can’t hide” in an accessible, effective way, and adds an echo to the verses. This one will be a crowd pleaser!
