"Twistin' The Night Away" by Sam Cooke.

OK, more 60's: Sam Cooke wrote this '62 dance classic after watching live footage from The Peppermint Lounge in NYC on "The Today Show". It topped the R&B charts and peaked at #9 on Pop. Covered by the Marvelettes that same year. Part of the "Animal House" ('78) and "The Green Hornet" ('11) soundtracks.

Yesterday's answer: "Johnny Angel" by Shelley Fabares.
