You could play an interesting game called "Which song title containing the word 'boogie' from the '70s could make us all blush now?" There's Kool & the Gang's "Jungle Boogie
," or perhaps "Boogie Shoes
" by KC & The Sunshine Band, and let's not forget Taste of Honey's "Boogie Oogie Oogie
." So "Boogie Fever" doesn't sound too bad by comparison, after all... right?
The Sylvers were well-suited to their time; but their time just happened to be an alternate dimension when we look back on it now. For all of that, they really put their all into the show - note the brass section and disco-style piano work on this piece. Hey, listen to it again, it's catchy. What else did club dancers demand? Come to that, what more do they demand now?
