Boogie Oogie Oogie was a monster hit back in the day in 1978 for A Taste of Honey. It topped the American pop, soul and disco charts, and it eventually sold over two million copies and has become one of the most recognizable songs from the disco era. Now this funky little number has been given the Key Loch treatment!Just two short weeks is all it took for this single to see over 12K plays on Spotify, and of course that’s to be expected given the kind of legacy we’re dealing with here: Boogie Oogie Oogie is one of the most iconic classic disco songs out there. There’s no disco fan in the world that hasn’t heard the original masterpiece from A Taste Of Honey, so it’s great to see that love have its torch passed on to Key Loch and their efforts! Give it a listen and see what new shine they brought out in their polishing.
And boy oh boy you’re about to have egg on your face if you believe that the fun stops there. No, Key Loch and Sahra aren’t done with this one by a long shot – as is evident from this sweet new montage-style music video that gained over 3000 views in just a couple of short weeks!
People are really getting into this… perhaps this is finally a reward to those disco fans who endured mockery when they refused to believe that disco was dead. Sometimes, rebirths like this are the best possible thing for an aesthetic or creative outlet! After all, Sahra’s vocals have been given new life from her incredible work she put into these cover sessions back in the early 2000s, over 20 years later it’s shining all over the world again. Back in the day, her original pre Key Loch cover even got the attention and approval of A Taste Of Honey themselves! And with the slow yet VERY steady creep of this new version’s playcount, perhaps it’s only a matter of time until it gets the attention of the disco funk community overall?
