There's a reason why you'll find 45s with every incarnation of a primate in the title. The Monkey was one of the most popular dances of the sixties. 1963 and 1964 was the heyday for this particular dance craze and a lot of Soul acts tried to come up with the next hit featuring our closest animal relative. Here are 17 tracks that will make you want to shake your big red butt and frolic all around the dance floor like you don't have a care in the world. For info about every track here and a few more, check out this Parka Avenue post.
