Ya know Don..I think you are right!!

I seem to actually remember it coming out, when I was very little...Chubby Checker right?? Alright..here's what the internet says:

TWIST: This dance was written by an African American musician in Georgia in 1958. He and his band members made up some twisting movements for the musicians to do while playing the music. Then in 1960, Chubby Checker made his first twist record, and made the Twist famous in Philadelphia. Twist came to New York via Philadelphia and New Jersey and then spread throughout most countries.

Okay, I admit...I have WAY too much time on my hands!!! :?:lol:
