Boogie Shoes

"Boogie Shoes" is a song by the disco group KC and the Sunshine Band, released in 1975 on the album KC and the Sunshine Band. The song became a hit after it appeared on the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack in 1977. It peaked at number 35 on the Billboard Hot 100 and number 29 on the soul chart in 1978.[1]

Structurally, it uses the sixteen-bar blues chord progression. As with several of KC's disco songs, some of the lyrics are playfully suggestive: "I want to do it till the sun comes up / I want to do till I can't get enough."

The song is part of the 1977 film Saturday Night Fever, and is featured in numerous other films, including No Escape (1994), Mallrats (1995), Boogie Nights (1997), Detroit Rock City (1999), The Wedding Date (2005) as well as television series, Sports Night, Desperate Housewives (both, coincidentally, with star Felicity Huffman dancing to it), and Flash Forward.

The song has been sampled by The Bloodhound Gang in the song "One Way", and more recently by Trick Daddy in his song "Take It to Da House." Alex Chilton famously covered "Boogie Shoes" on his 1979 album Like Flies on Sherbert. In 2012, the song was sung by Alex Newell (playing a transgender teen) in the Glee episode "Saturday Night Glee-ver".
