It’s not clear where this word comes from. But it may come from French, talked in Louisiana, cradle for jazz, blues and therefore boogie. The “bogie” in french describes the wheelsets of a train that produce a hypnotic noise on the railroad track imitated by musicians to create a hyptonic beat. The word has been loaded since then with sexual connotations and originated boogie-woogie, the pianistic prequel to rock’n’roll. In this episode you’ll hear that boogie either black or white, blues or country, rhythm’n’blues or rock’n’roll is the primitive groove of the American Dream.
