COLETTE MESTON, Sexy-Twist, 1963Posted: August 24, 2012
“Sexy-Twist” is a German version of Chris Montez´rocking surf hit “Some Kinda Fun” minus the buzzing trademark organ. The title is quite misleading and was obviously just chosen to raise attention. It´s just a happy little twist tune about being young and in love. This version, recorded for the budget label Clariphon, is almost identical to the original version by the Twist Twens on Germany´s biggest budget label Tempo. Colette Meston recorded only a handful of songs and also narrated some children´s records for Clariphon but besides that I couldn´t find any information about her, the Colibris or Jean Satori and his orchestra. “Sexy-Twist” would´ve fit on the excellent “Twist in Germany” CD that Bear Family Records put out in 2000, but so far the fifty year old song has never been re-released.
“The most beautiful thing in the world is for free and it´s being young and in love.”
