Freebase

  1. Boogie

    Boogie is a repetitive, swung note or shuffle rhythm, "groove" or pattern used in blues which was originally played on the piano in boogie-woogie music. The characteristic rhythm and feel of the boogie was then adapted to guitar, double bass, and other instruments. The earliest recorded boogie-woogie song was in 1916. By the 1930s, Swing bands such as Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, and Louis Jordan all had boogie hits. By the 1950s, boogie became incorporated into the emerging rockabilly and rock and roll styles. In the late 1980s and the early 1990s country bands released country boogies. Today, the term "boogie" usually refers to dancing to pop, disco, or rock music.

Examples of boogie in a Sentence

  1. Allen Toussaint:

    Our upright wasn't much of a piano — it was a half-step flat the entire time we owned it — but that piano was everything to me. It was dark mahogany, almost black, with rouge crimps all over it. I took about eight piano lessons before my teacher gave up on me. I loved boogie-woogie and hillbilly music and gospel too much.

  2. Dwayne Johnson:

    It came early, actually, this past Sunday, [Lauren] wakes me up and was like, ‘Hey, you’ve gotta get up, I’m having the baby!’ And it was like a full-on, full-tilt boogie, going 100 mph… We get in the car and as soon as I’m backing up, she’s like, ‘April Fool's!’.
