1. Rock and Roll Waltz - Kay Starr
2. Mambo Italiano - Dean Martin
3. Tennessee Waltz - Patti Page
4. The Twist - Chubby Checker


Chubby Checker's 1960 recording was a cover of a 1959 R&B hit by Hank Ballard and the Midnighters. And since most of Checker's hits were dance-related, he may turn up a time or three on this list.
