Let's Twist Again, Like We Did Last Summer!

Let's Twist Again was released 45 years ago this month! It was written by Kal Mann and Dave Appell, and released as a single recorded by Chubby Checker, one of the biggest hit singles of 1961 reaching #2 in the UK charts and #8 in the U.S. charts. It refers to the Twist dance craze and his 1960 single "The Twist" a UK and US #1 single. The song received the 1961 Grammy Award for Best Rock 'n Roll Recording.

Jackie Kennedy loved to Twist, and rolled back the carpets when she hosted a party. So did Audrey Hepburn:

Someone else who liked to Twist was a little Canadian girl named Shari who won the Twist contest at Cindy Schneider's brthday party in 1963 -- that's me on the right!
makes me feel old....
