UC075, The Hully Gully

Ok, my friend Andreas of the extraordinary Berlin Beatet Bestes-Blog (http://mischalke04.wordpress.com ) started me off with this and half of the tracks of this selection are his. I just added some more songs once I was bitten by the Hully Gully-bug. For your scientific interest, the Hully-Gully was a dance based on The Frug, which itself was a variation on The Chicken, invented in 1961 by Frank Rocco at the Cadillac Hotel, Miami Beach, Florida. The dance was based on the song of the same name, made popular by The Olympics in 1959 (first track of this selection). Other than bein’ a short lived dance craze, at least in Germany (and in Italy, too) the word has survived until today and stands for somthing like “(joyful) mess-up”… So shake your shoulders, wiggle your knees and take a lesson….
