Singing is what Dee Dee Sharp loves best. Tantalizing vocals with a sassy style have been her signature during her forty year career s a song stylist. Dee Dee’s No. 1 smash hit “Mashed Potato Time” was one of the top ‘dance craze’ hits, right up there with “The Twist” and “The Locomotion.” In fact, “Mashed Potato Time” was the No. 3 song of the year on Billboard’ Year-End Hot 100 Singles for 1962.
Dee Dee also sang on the duet “Slow Twistin'” with the King of the Twist, Chubby Checker. These were followed up by a second big hit “Gravy,” “Ride” and “Do the Bird” among others.
A popular fixture on Dick Clark’s American Bandstand in the 60s, Dee Dee’s songs have also been featured in many famous films, including “Desperately Seeking Susan,” “Don’t Knock the Twist,” “Hairspray,” “Sister Act,” and “Troop Beverly Hills.”
