Listening to Did You Boogie (With Your Baby) by Flash Cadillac and The Continental Kids is really music nostalgia to me. The first time I heard the song was on the radio in 1991 or 1992 – I was trying to study for an exam in my parents home (lying on the couch with my math book, don’t know how intensive study that was). Immediately I fell for the old sound that Did You Boogie (With Your Baby) had and the rest of the day I was humming the chorus as far as I could remember it:
Did you boogie with your baby in the back row of the movie show
And did you boogie there cause you had nowhere else that you could go
And when the lights went way down low
Did you forget about the picture show
Yes, did you boogie with your baby in the back row of the movie show
The song was still on my mind when my exams where over so I tried to find the it via my local record store but it failed because I could not remember the artist Flash Cadillac and The Continental Kids (a bit long name if you ask me). By coincidence I years later found it on a 70s hit collection.
So when I want to listen to a happy nostalgic song from my youth to remind me of school and summer Did You Boogie (With Your Baby) is an obvious choice.
