Another documentary is coming to Apple Music soon, and to garner some attention for it, Apple has shared a trailer.
This one is entitled Bang! The Bert Berns Story, and it deals with the life of Bert Berns, the man who famously scribed the lyrics for the hit song, “Twist and Shout” (along with co-writer Phil Medley). Berns started as a songwriter, but eventually found his way over to Atlantic Records, where he produced quite a few different hits from the 1960s and beyond. That includes hits like “Brown Eyed Girl,” “Here Comes the Night,” and many others.
Here’s the trailer for the upcoming documentary:
Along with the description of the upcoming film:
