From Wikipedia: "I'm Gonna Sit Right Down and Write Myself a Letter" is a popular song. The music was written by Fred E. Ahlert, the lyrics by Joe Young. The song was published in 1935. The first big hit version was by Fats Waller in 1935; the song also had a major revival in 1957 in a recording by Billy Williams, which reached #3 on the Billboard magazine charts.
Acording to The History of American Bandstand p. 17 Billy Williams was a "moderately successful rhythm-and-blues" singer of the 50's and the FIRST special guest star to appear on the FIRST network show of American Bandstand on August 5, 1957. His appearance was significant at the time because R&B music and black artists were not the norm for network afternoon TV.
49 years later, those of us who grew up dancing in our living rooms from 3 - 4:30 with Dick Clark and American Bandstand are dancing to the song
Write Myself A Letter. The beginner dance was written by Pat Stott and Steve Mason.

As I was scanning for files I came across C'mon Baby Ride that Train ...under the heading of "line dance" ...I immediately was taken back to 1997 when I learned Scott's
Ride That Train ...first line dance to funky young music ...music we now take for granted.
