Twistin' Postman

"Twistin' Postman" is a song recorded by Motown singing group The Marvelettes, who released it in 1961, and was the follow-up to their smash debut single, "Please Mr. Postman". Much like that song, it is led by original Marvelette Gladys Horton, and is partially based on the then-current Twist dance move. The song's subject is a sequel of the original "Postman" single and this time the narrator is finally happy that the postman has delivered a letter from the narrator's boyfriend. The song became a modest hit for the group reaching number thirteen on the R&B charts and number thirty-four on the pop singles chart in early 1962. A third single, "Playboy", would return the group to the top ten of the pop and R&B charts later that year.
