referencing Teardrops On Your Letter / The Twist, 7", Single, 45-5171

"Teardrops On Your Letter" is a fine ballad, but it is the flipside that would make dance history when "American Bandstand"-tv host Dick Clark hired a guy named Ernest Evans aka Chubby Checker to do a coverversion of the song in 1960.
