KC & The Sunshine Band ~ (Shake Shake Shake) Shake Your Booty 1976 Disco Purrfection Version
1976 was the year of the American Bicentennial, 200 years of independence and this booty shaker of a song hit the charts one week after the 4th of July entering at #79 and then #1 nine weeks later on September 11. Definitely the song of the summer of 76, it also spent four weeks at #1 on the R&B/Soul charts. KC was surprised at these accomplishments since he thought the song was NOT going to be a hit. This song came about after a tour when he noticed that there were some people who never got out of their seats during the concert. He addressed this song to those who would not dance. In the best tradition of Earth, Wind & Fire, KC wrote the uplifting lyrics beckoning them to "don't fight the feeling, give yourself a chance". He wanted to instill self confidence in people with this song, and did he succeed! KC and The Sunshine Band were more interested in having fun than issuing social commentary and wanted to keep the feeling up. KC feels the song has more depth, and shaking your booty means not just on the dance floor, but in everything you do in life. Writing songs was KC savior, as he often wrote when he was feeling really down and it helped him get through those tough times. Prominently featured is the clavinet, a keyboard instrument with a distinctive bright staccato sound that has appeared in funk, disco, rock, and reggae songs. Here it could easily be mistaken for a guitar as KC went up an octave giving this hit single a higher sound. At the time, (Shake Shake Shake) Shake Your Booty was the #1 single with the most repeated word in its title, a total of four times and a total of seven times in each chorus. Frank Zappa paid homage to KC for his disco parody LP "Sheik Yerbouti" in 1979. Here is my special extended version just for fun and in time for New Year's!
