Side Saddle
"Side Saddle" is a hit single which was number one in the UK Singles Chart for four weeks from 27 March 1959.[2] The honky-tonk style tune, composed and played by British popular music pianist Russ Conway, was written as part of the score for a television musical adaptation of Beauty and the Beast.[3][4] Conway, sitting in the TV rehearsal room, was asked to write a last-minute tune for one small scene set in a ballroom. He wrote 16 bars as an "olde-world gavotte" and hastily titled it "Side Saddle" in the margin.[5] The song was a staple of the BBC's Housewives' Choice radio programme.[6]Preceded by "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes" by The Platters UK Singles Chart number-one single 27 March 1959 – 23 April 1959 Succeeded by "It Doesn't Matter Anymore" by Buddy HollyReferences[edit]^ a b "Russ Conway - Side Saddle (Vinyl) at Discogs".

Nat Gonella
Nathaniel Charles Gonella (7 March 1908 – 6 August 1998) was an English jazz trumpeter, bandleader, vocalist, and mellophonist born in London, notable for his work with the big band he founded, The Georgians, during the British dance band era. His vocal style was reminiscent of Louis Armstrong, though the voice was often eclipsed by his achievements as a band leader and trumpeter. Gonella has been a major influence on other British jazz trumpeters, including Humphrey Lyttelton and Digby Fairweather.Contents1 Early life and career 2 The 1930s 3 The 1940s & 1950s 4 The 1960s & 1970s 5 Post-retirement 6 Further reading 7 References 8 External linksEarly life and career[edit]This section does not cite any sources.

They reached the Top 40 with the singles "Torquay" (1959), "Bulldog" (1960) and "Quite a Party" (1961)

He is widely known for popularising many dance styles including the twist dance style, with his 1960 hit cover of Hank Ballard's R&B hit "The Twist" and the Pony with hit "Pony Time". In September 2008 "The Twist" topped Billboard's list of the most popular singles to have appeared in the Hot 100 since its debut in 1958, an honor it maintained for an August 2013 update of the list.[1] He also popularized the "Limbo Rock" and its trademark limbo dance, as well as various dance styles such as The Fly. Checker is the only recording artist to place five albums in the Top 12 at once.
