this song was a game changer. like rock around the clock. changed everyone's perception of dance music. once you'd do the twist, two people dancing slow and close went out the window. now it was the Watusi and whatever, dancing with no holds barred. the parents went crazy. the dance was denounced by churches and politicians as corrupting america. it was actually fun to watch all the fuming. of course it had all happened before with elvis's swinging hips. good times were had by all.
