Joey Dee (Joey DiNicola) & The Starliters – Peppermint Twist.

A classic from 1961.   Hope you enjoy.


Peppermint Twist” was written by Joey Dee and Henry Glover, recorded and released by Joey Dee and the Starliters in 1961. Capitalizing on the Twist dance craze and the nightclub in which Dee performed (“ThePeppermint Lounge”), the song hit number one on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 in early 1962. 

“Peppermint Twist” replaced Chubby Checker’s “The Twist,” the song that sparked the Twist craze, at the number one position. 

The lead singer in the Starliters’ version is David Brigati, whose brother,Eddie Brigati, was a singer for the 1960s hit pop group, the (Young) Rascals.
