Welcome to 1962, a landmark year for popular music. It saw the Beatles hit the UK charts for the first time with their single ‘Love Me Do’, but the biggest noises were still to be found emerging for the United States. The twist was the dance craze of the moment, and we feature related hits from Sam Cooke and the Isley Brothers. There are many great songs on this compilation – by Elvis Presley, Ray Charles, The Beach Boys and Roy Orbison, among others – confirming that, despite being remembered for the sad death of screen goddess Marilyn Monroe, 1962 was also a memorable year for pop. Enjoy 50 great numbers that have survived the years with style to spare.
