The Jacksons "Blame It On The Boogie"

Due to the confusion on "Destiny's" album credits, many have mistakenly identified M. Jackson as the Michael Jackson. But on the contrary, this fella(also called Michael Jackson) was a late 70's Pop icon in Britain who gave "The Jackson's" the honors on becoming the first to record a rendition to his hit(listen on it Here). Thus, all credit goes to him as the inventor and writer. Yet, "Michael Jackson & The Jackson's" are still best known by this song.

Mike Jackson had this to say about his belated friend...

 "The first time was in a lift in the Montcalm Hotel in London and we just said hi," Mick recalls. "Later, at the Top Of The Pops TV show in London, he asked me to sell him my jump suit I was wearing for the show and I declined... MJ was performing Destiny with his brothers."

Hee, hee, hee, hee

My baby’s always dancin’ and it wouldn’t be a bad thing
But I don’t get no lovin’ and that’s no lie
We spent the night…

Shake Your Body Down To The Ground

One of my favorites of The Jacksons. Folks, we have now reached "Destiny's" climax! When Disco fever was at it's peak!

 The Jacksons wanted to debut this off the album. However, Epic persuaded them to release Blame It On The Boogie.
"Shake Your Body Down To The Ground" is certified by The RIAA for selling over 2,000,000 copies(note: these figures are much higher since his tragic passing on June 25th, 2009).





Lyrics
I don't know whats going happen to you baby
But I do know that I want you
You walk around this town with your head all up in the sky
And I do know that I want you
Let's dance, let's shout
Shake you body down to the ground
Shake you body down to the ground
You tease me with your loving to play hard to get
Cause you do know that I love it
You walk around this town with your head all up in the sky
And I do know that I want you
Let's dance, let's shout

Shake you body down to the ground

Destiny-The Song

Coming off The Jacksons eponymous album (Destiny) is a moral tune against the materialistic lifestyle(valuing things over people).

 Seems like Michael sure has good perspective on the material world. Today he is considered the most generous celebrity in the music industry! And he is not broke(as the media sensationally loves to claim). But rather has a mound full of valuable assets he can't sell in a bad economy.

 Now back on topic. This tittle track crisscrosses between two platforms of Rock and Ballad. On a little bit of Soul and R&B.
