This simple but charming pop-soul ditty began its life as an album track on KC & The Sunshine Band but ended up taking on a life of its own. The frothy lyrics of "Boogie Shoes" use the urge to dance as a metaphor for the giddiness of new love: "Girl to be with you is my favorite thing/And I can’t wait ‘til I see you again/I wanna put on, my-my-my-my-my boogie shoes." The music sets up the simple lyric with a relaxed but catchy melody, contrasting gently swinging verses that slowly build a head of steam with a joyful sing-along chorus built on the insidious stuttering hook that underlines the phrase "my-my-my-my-my boogie shoes." KC & The Sunshine Band’s recording of "Boogie Shoes" gives the song an amiable, shuffling groove that is pepped up with some drawling horn riffs and scratching J.B.’s-styled rhythm guitar. Harry Wayne Casey tops the gentle groove off with a slick yet soulful vocal that is fleshed out with some judicious backup vocals on the chorus to enhance its sing-along feel. The result is a charming little tune that represents the group’s sound at its most poppy. "Boogie Shoes" originally was just an album track but it got an unexpected commercial revival when it was licensed to appear on the soundtrack of Saturday Night Fever. This unexpected renaissance led to a belated single release of "Boogie Shoes" that gave KC & The Sunshine Band a top-40 hit. It periodically appears on soul music oldies stations today and frequently appears on KC & The Sunshine Band compilations.
