Al's most useless song... and that includes "Girls Just Wanna Have Lunch" which he was forced to write.

Gotta Boogie!

I like this song, as a first album song. It's childish, but also the '70iest song out there for Al

Am I the only one that thinks of Steve Martin when I hear this? I literally just picture Steve Martin (maybe Little Shop of Horrors-ish) when he says "Gotta boogie on my finger and I can't shake it off!"

My favorite thing about this song is the way the woman says "No, man. I don't want a boogie."

Was listening to this album recently.

As good as Al's gotten over the years and his improvements as a writer...I love this song.

Maybe it's a sentimental attachment to the nostalgia as a kid listening to it, I don't know. It's funny.

A cute song, but at the end of the day, nothing special.
