Chubby Checker artist popular songs

Chubby Checker was a rock and soul performer. In 1960, The Twist hit number one, kicking off the most successful dance craze of the 1960s. The Twist craze was so strong that the same record hit number one again in 1961 just 15 months later. The Twist was originally written and recorded in 1959 by Hank Ballard And The Midnighters, whose version received more airplay after Chubby Checker made the song a smash. Chubby Checker went on to create a series of twisting hits, and many other songs.
