Chubby Checker-The Twist

Who doesn't love The Twist? When thinking of the perfect song for Liz and Julie to dance to in a funky little bar in L.A. during a weekend trip, I didn't have to think long or hard before they got up and did The Twist. It was a song that even white girls could move to and I know this because I can do it....with the exception of the moves I learned on Dirty Dancing there are not very many moves in my bag of tricks. It also seemed perfect that this song is probably one of the most energetic, fun songs of all time and Liz is dancing to it when she spots a guy that she recognizes as Brian, who appears to have dropped off the face of the planet during the week before. She goes quickly from moving and shakin' to running like hell to argue with the man she had fallen in love with, to beg him to come back to not only her but all of the students that depended on him. The abrupt mood change was bi-polar, yes, but that was sort of the point. :) The change in mood in no way changes my mind about this song, or Liz's for that matter. It is a great tune to get up and move to.
