 Het origineel werd buiten Europa geen hit In 1965 brak het nummer internationaal wel door dankzij een coverversie van The Guess Who ,nummer een in Canada en nummer 22 in de U.S .

The original recording was not a hit outside of Europe. Instead, "Shakin' All Over" gained fame in North America after the Canadian band The Guess Who covered it in early 1965, where it became a #1 hit in Canada, and a #22 hit in the US. The Guess Who had previously been known as "Chad Allan and the Expressions" prior to the release of "Shakin' All Over", but the group's Canadian label (Quality Records) issued the record as by "Guess Who?", in an attempt to imply that the record might be by a British Invasion act -- perhaps even The Beatles. The group subsequently permanently changed their name to The Guess Who, and went on to a long Top 40 career.
