"The Twist" by Chubby Checker.

OK, a little dancin': Ernest Evans grew up in South Philly and was a high school classmate of Fabian. His '60 cover of a Hank Ballard and The Midnighters '59 hit (#16 R&B) is still the only single to top Billboard's Hot 100 twice! In '08 it topped Billboard's list of the most popular singles to have appeared in the Hot 100 since its debut in '58. Only artist to have 5 albums in Top 12 at once. Stage name? Song?

Yesterday's answer: Sir Elton John's "Crocodile Rock". As a non-keyboard player in the 60's, I was still fascinated by the great Farfisa sound (NOT to be confused with the Vox Continental!). Think "Double Shot (Of My Baby's Love)", "Wooly Bully"...
