Electric Boogie Spanglish - TheSliders.com
The Original "Electric Boogie" (also known as the "Electric Slide") is a dance song performed by Marcia Griffiths. It is strongly associated with the "Electric Slide" line dance. "Electric Boogie" was released in 1982 and reached number 51 on the US Billboard Hot 100. It was written and originally recorded in 1976 with Bunny Wailer.
Griffiths' version was actually a hit in 1983 when it was first released, but reached its highest Billboard chart position of 51 in The Hot 100 in 1990, and has since become a celebratory staple. The song is very popular in the US at weddings, bar and bat mitzvahs, and other special occasions.
The Original song was written by Neville O'Riley Livingston O.J. (born 10 April 1947), better known as Bunny Wailer, and also as Bunny Livingston and affectionately as Jah B, is a Jamaican singer songwriter and percussionist and was an original member of reggae group The Wailers along with Bob Marley and Peter Tosh. A three-time Grammy award winner, he is considered one of the longtime standard-bearers of reggae music.
This version of “Electric Boogie” is sung partially in English and partially in Spanish, “Spanglish” and therefore has been renamed “Electric Boogie Spanglish”. The dance that was developed for this new song is an 18 Count dance.
The Electric Boogie Spanglish is a special song for the Electric Slide, the first song in history to be made specifically for the Electric Slide- 18 count version! Featuring Rachel Rodriguez, Tim Heidelberg, Hillbilly Rick, and Ronnie Beard!
