Wow, this is impressive, Chubby Checker’s ‘The Twist’ has been named the biggest US chart hit of the last 50 years.
I’m amazed that a song from so long ago could still be the top song, especially after some really big name performers like Michael Jackson, The Beatles, Madonna, Elvis Presley and so many more have had some massive hits.
However, chubby Checker it is, and I guess if any song deserves to be number one this might be one of the songs that is so universally known that I can agree.
What I can’t agree with though is some of the other tracks in the top ten, for example the Macarena by Los Del Rio at number 5, or We Belong Together by Toni Braxton. <br />
Oh boy, just when you think Britney Spears is down and out, probably never to resurrect her music career she goes and wins several awards at the MTV Video Music Awards.
I would never have expected this after all those problems she had with being in hospital, the divorce, losing custody of her children, and then that disastrous performance at last years Awards.
But I have to say I like her latest music, it was like she’d finally grown up, and maybe all the bad stuff she’s been through will make her a stronger performer in the future, maybe even a better mother.
So I guess winning awards this year is just part of her comeback, and she really should be congratulated for getting her act together.
I’m also really excited for Tokio Hotel getting best newcomer. That’s a big win for them, and their music is awesome as well.
