And the most popular song is...'The Twist'

19 September 2008
Chubby Checker's iconic re-make of 'The Twist' (originally written by Hank Ballard) took the top position in the 100 most popular songs of Billboard era. It even overtook Elvis!
Most amazingly the survey was made counting all of the singles in popular culture. So it nice to see that great Checker's number got higher then Mariah Carey and Toni Braxton. Here's top 10:

1. "The Twist" Chubby Checker
2. "Smooth" Santana featuring Rob Thomas
3. "Mack the Knife" Bobby Darin
4. "How Do I Live" Leann Rimes
5. "Macarena" Los Del Rio
6. "Physical" Olivia Newton-John
7. "You Light Up My Life" Debby Boone
