3rd March 2015: Chubby Checker – Der Twist beginnt (German Week – Day 1)

Language – German

Translation – The Twist begins

I am easing you gently into ‘German Week’ with this odd (yet strangely brilliant) slice of mashed-up American / German classic pop.  At some point later in the year I am going to do a week of ‘People singing their own songs in foreign languages’, but I couldn’t resist using Chubby Checker here. Like most pop stars who have sung in other languages, he learned the songs phonetically, and I think it works!
