Honaloochie Boogie

by

Mott the Hoople



Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

Ian Hunter wrote this for Mott The Hoople. Hunter said he thought it was inspired by his early Rock 'n Roll days, including the film That'll Be The Day, but said later, "I can't figure it out at all," but it didn't matter because it sounded good. "Honaloochie" may sound like a town in the American Deep South but it is in fact an entirely made up word. (thanks, Alexander Baron - London, England)
