A Friday Twist!

What was the most popular song at this time ( January 13th ) during your birth year? For me it was “The Twist” by Chubby Checker.  The song was originally written and released by Hank Ballard and the Midnighters in 1959. It was only a moderate 1960 hit.

In 1960 the dance and song the Twist became popular when the song was covered by Chubby Checker. On September 19,1960 his single became a hit reaching #1 on the Bill Board Hot 100 and then set a record by being the only single to reach number one in two different chart runs when it resurfaced and topped the chart again on January 13, 1962.

A friend of mine on Facebook had posted this question and gave us a link to find out which one was ours. I thought it was a fun thing to do and find out! This may not be the same link he had but you can look it up yourself and see which one was yours here.  It would be interesting to see which song was on the top of the charts during your birth year! Leave a comment below and lets see all the different ones! Have a great weekend everyone!
