SINGLE RELEASED ON THIS DAY IN 1962

The song "Twistin’ the Night Away" was written by Sam Cooke. It became
very popular, charting in the top ten of both the Billboard Hot 100 (#9)
and Billboard’s R&B chart (#1).

The popular Boston-based soul band The Chicken Slacks take their name
from a commonly misheard lyric in the song’s second verse; Cooke is
actually singing about a "chick in slacks.”
