I is for I Love to Boogie by T Rex


Okay, I think it's time for some more music. Usually, when I'm writing  - imagine words flowing with abandon, fingers burning with friction - I need to look up and move around occassionally.

There are two songs I can't not dance to, which can be awkward. I Love to Boogie is one of them: I've attempted to dance to this song while on a cross trainer (elliptical) at the gym, while walking in a supermarket, and once - dragging my sister into the boogie - in a service station car park on the M5. (The other one is Footloose, if you're interested.)

This is a live version, and a bit rockier than the single. What I'd really love is if you'd stand up and have a bit of a dance - go on, you've been at this keyboard for a while now, you've visited plenty of blogs, this is time for you! Let me know if you danced!

  2. I promise I'll dance after the coffee:) I need to let it settle a little so it has time to infiltrate my bloodstream to be awake;)

  5. Thanks for that! My volume seems to have turned itself up to full and I was blasted out of my chair!

  6. I'll crank it up and dance while I'm waiting for the kettle to boil :-)

  7. ....just sat down for lunch and blog-hop catch up - so I'm tapping my foot rather than attempting a full-on boogie, if you don't mind! ;-)

    Gosh, I remember when Bolan and Co. brought this out (...showing my age!)

    SueH I refuse to go quietly!

  9. Thanks for dancing, everyone!!!!

    My greatest wish in the entire world is to be walking down the street one day and just fall into a Grease-style song and dance number with my fellow pedestrians. This is a small part of that!

  10. Ha ha ha! I have this problem with a lot of songs and I too often embarrase myself dancing. I just can't help it, it's too fun!

  12. Fun! I love to dance. I gave it a short go, but my daughters enjoyed rocking out to it! :) Is it me, or does that guy in red look a little like Johnny Depp? Maybe I'm just wishful thinking. hehehe

    1. Marc Bolan was quite gorgeous - another musician taken too soon though.

  13. Well that was fun! ;) I love to dance, too. (But am not good at it.) I was actually in our local production of Footloose, I played Ren's mom. I was only about ten years older than the kid who played Ren. They made me wear an ugly curly wig, very 80s mom. It was fun. :)

  15. Kinda rockabilly version, eh?

  16. Definitely good for a dance - and maybe we could all get together and walk down the street, Grease-style! Great idea :-)

  17. Hahaha, this song is so much fun. I've already played it twice...

  18. I can't dance because I'm at work, but I know what you mean!

  19. I love to boogie too! Hard not to jiggle around to it! Also, never noticed how much Marc looked like Johnny Depp before!

  20. There's nothing like a good song to amp up the energy. Thanks for sharing!

    1. The beauty of dancing randomly is that it will always look a little bit silly, so bad dancing in public places should be encouraged!
