A Taste of Honey - Boogie Oogie Oogie on WLCY RADIO
Boogie Oogie Oogie is a song by disco group A Taste of Honey. Released from their self-titled album in 1978, it became an extremely popular "crossover" song. The lyrics urge listeners to "boogie oogie oogie till you just can't boogie no more." It topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart, the Hot Soul Singles chart, and the Hot Dance Club Play chart. It would eventually sell over two million copies and has become one of the most recognizable songs from the late 1970s disco era. It would also help the group win the Grammy Award for Best New Artist of 1978. It also reached #3 on the UK Singles Chart.

In the late 1990s, the song was used in a national campaign ad for Burger King and was sampled by numerous rap acts. The song was also used in a campaign for Rold Gold Pretzels (featuring actor Jason Alexander) in the mid-1990s. Janice Marie Johnson, a member of the group, recorded another version of the song in 2001. The song also featured in the first episode of season four of Nip/Tuck and on an episode of Lucy, the Daughter of the Devil.
