4Ever songs: KC & The Sunshine Band “I’m Your Boogie Man”

In the 1970s, at the height of disco fever, the Florida group KC And The Sunshine Band were one of the biggest acts in the world with five No 1 singles. One of them: “I’m Your Boogie Man,”

According to KC & The Sunshine Band’s “I’m Your Boogie Man,” the Miami group’s fourth #1 hit, the boogie man is a funky guy who likes to have sex and who is willing to show up and have sex with you whenever you feel like having sex, not a monster.

The Sunshine Band had always made music for clubs, and “I’m Your Boogie Man” fits in perfectly well with what they were doing. In general, disco didn’t control the charts in 1977 the way it had done a year earlier. If not for Saturday Night Fever coming out and becoming a cultural phenomenon at the end of the year, disco might have run its course. A lot of 1977’s hits flirted with disco sonics, but none of them did so as boldly and unashamedly as “I’m Your Boogie Man.” But “Boogie Man” hit anyway. It’s a colossal groove of a song.
