Sam cooke was so cool racist even loved him . No s**t. I'm an old man and. I remember. Now. I hate a racist and all normal people do. But. I'm saying. Sam trancended the lines that divided the races then. I just hope. I'm worthy to meet him in the next world. 2Cents from an old white guy.

Oh man, all I can see is Martin Short dancing to this song in the movie Innerspace. It was so funny. Good clean humor back then.

Love hearing Sam Cooke and Twistin' the Nite Away. Rod Stewart did an admirable cover. I prefer the original by Sam Cooke.

The place Sam is talking about in New York was the Peppermint Lounge. Where house band Joey D and the Starliters were the first to make the twist famous. Later in the 70's after the club changed owners it became a punk club where bands like Joan Jett and the Blackhearts could be seen.

The line *Where the people are so gay* implies that everyone there is very happy, not homosexual.
