eYeGeNeYe presents: Int’l Twisters, part 2



If you don’t fear 8 versions of Peppermint Twist, this one’s for you! Another 93 examples proving one more time that the TWIST was much more than a short lived craze but a true genre in its own right. Spanning over a 3 years time range (61 – 63), it inundated the globe, as tracks from Yugoslavia to Finland and Japan to Chile prove. The TWIST  was NOT a mere teenage thing tho’ but interested parents nearly the same way and was taught in dance schools. Seems the TWIST was just and only about one thing: to twist! Full stop. But it was a perfect dada pot you  can pour anything in, even your own grandma! It becomes the Grandma Twist, and it will work just as fine as pairings with Ali Baba, Jeronimo, 3 little pigs, Khrushchev, Bowling, and Elephants do…
So while your papa’s a sleepin’ and your ma’s not around, why don’t we twistin’ twistin’ and tear the whole house down?
