#5 R&B  #7 Pop

When R&B producer Jesse James experienced Johnny Corely singing in their church, he soon became his manager and wrote him the song “Boogaloo Down Broadway”.

After listening to the recording both Jesse and Johnny  said “that’s fantastic!”  And before you know it Corley became known as “The Fantastic Johnny C.”

This song was one of my favorites to dance to at home with no one watching. :-)  It almost (but not quite)  got little SonDan the Wallflower up and dancing at a pre-teen dance event many moons ago (but I did the moves seated LOL).

I lost the aversion to dancing in public once I got into my late teens and early twenties.  That would be when I got the Boogie Fever and then morphed into a disco dynamo!

Even now as I listen to this song, while composing this post, I can barely keep in my seat because the beat is totally infectious. Don’t you agree?

Musically Yours,

Omg SonDan! i wanna see this dance now! what type of dance did you do to this? sadly, im still like that. as much as i love music, i cant get over my shyness and dance in front of others. i did it once to the Cha Cha Slide but that doesnt really count since its a line dance LOL.

There was a dance called the Boogaloo but I don’t know how it went (LOL) Maybe someone reading this will step in and give us both a clue. :-)
