Re: Sandy Nelson Gone

Sandy Nelson holds a spot in music history as an artist who did what only a few others managed - placing virtually the same song on the Billboard charts more than once in separate years. "Teen Beat" was a hit in 1959 and was followed by a slightly different "Teen Beat 1965" six years later. 

Others who managed this feat: The Ventures, who placed "Walk Don't Run" in the top 10 in 1960, only to rechart with a separate version, "Walk Don't Run 1964" during the British Invasion years. 

Chubby Checker's "The Twist" hit #1 twice in different years, although it was the same record both times. Same with "The Monster Mash."

And Neil Sedaka took two very different versions of "Breakin' Up Is Hard To Do" into the Top 10 in different decades, once in the 60s and a slower version in the 70s. 

Are there more artists who did this?

It's worth noting that Sandy Nelson landed 11 LP's on the Billboard album charts.  R.I.P.

The Safaris charted twice with Wipe Out in '63 and '66.
