Chubby Checker - Song Of The Week

The Treasure Island Oldies Blog kicks off 2013 in conjunction with our Annual New Year Dance Party. And what a way to start the year than with a song whose success has never been repeated

In 1960 Chubby Checker hit the charts with The Twist and it went to Number One. Here's the kicker; the same record returned two years later in 1962 and this re-release also went straight to the Number One spot on the chart. This feat has never happened again to any artist.

Here is Chubby Checker with The Twist, in a clip from American Bandstand. It's our Song Of The Week.
