The Jacksons - Blame It on the Boogie

Composed By Michael Jackson/Jackson, D./Elmar Krohn

First brought to the attention of the Jacksons, after one of their representatives heard it, at the Midem Music Festival in 1978.

It is the lead single, and the only track the brothers didn't write themselves, from the Jacksons' album Destiny, issued in December 1978.

It charted in the US at no.3 on the R&B singles chart and a lowly no.54 on the Hot 100, and peaked at no.8 in the UK. A special 7 minute Extended Disco Remix featured slight alternate vocals.

Mick Jackson's original version was rush-released, once it became known the Jacksons' cover was being issued as a single. The two versions by similarily named artists understandably led to confusion among record buyers, especially in the UK, where Mick's version charted at no.15.

Mick Jackson has confirmed he loves the Jacksons version of his song, and Jay Kay's 2003 cover as well. Michael and Mick have met several times. "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."


Blame It on the Boogie - Lyrics

My babyís always danciní
And it wouldnít be a bad thing
But I donít get no loviní
And thatís no lie
We spent the night in Frisco
At every kind of disco
From that night I kissed our love goodbye

Donít blame it on the sunshine
Donít blame it on the moonlight
Donít blame it on the good times
Blame it on the boogie
Donít blame it on the sunshine
Donít blame it on the moonlight
Donít blame it on the good times
Blame it on the boogie

That nasty boogie bugs me
But somehow it has drugged me
Spellbound rhythm gets me on my feet
Iíve changed my life completely
Iíve seen the lightning leave me
And my baby just canít take her eyes off me

I just canít
I just canít
I just canít control my feet

This magic music grooves me
That dirty rhythm fools me
The devilís gotten me
Through this dance
Iím full of funky fever
A fire burns inside me
Boogieís got me in a super trance

Sunshine
Moonlight
Good times
Boogie

Donít you blame it
You just got to
You just want to
Yeah, oh
Blame it on yourself
Ainít nobodyís fault
But yours and that boogie
Dancing all night long
