The Whispers were first formed 1964 but they had to wait 16 years before scoring the first top 20 hit in both the U.S. and the UK with And The Beat Goes On. This song was co-written by Leon F. Sylvers III, Stephen Shockley, and William Shelby. Sylvers felt that the song had little potential to be a hit. The Whisperers felt differently and they turned out to be correct.
As befits an old school song, this is an old school video, a simple performance clip of the band doing what they did best.
And The Beat Goes On is another song that I have fond memories of listening to while stealing cars in Vice City. If you haven’t been chased by a police helicopter while listening to And The Beat Goes On then what were you doing back in 2002?
