Question: What is your summer anthem?
A: “Let’s Twist Again” by Chubby Checker
When I think of summer music, I’m transported back to early ’60s beach music. The Beach Boys are always a great choice, but I can’t help but dance when I hear “Let’s Twist Again” by Chubby Checker. His deep, powerful voice is full of joy that quickly spreads to the listener. His crisp, staccato notes echo the sharp dance movements of the time. As I watch videos of his performances, I can feel the joy flowing through him. “Let’s Twist Again” starts my summer off right, full of energy and potential.
