The Flat Foot Floogie

Song: The Flat Foot Floogie
Artist: Slim Galliard and Slam Stewart

Why we like this song: N--I like this looney tooney because, good gosh, it's silly. I also like the Slam Stewart humming-while-tearing-up-the-bass thing. If these guys feel familiar to you, it might be because you saw them in Hellzapoppin'--they're the ones that happen upon some instruments and start a crazy spontaneous jam that opens up the floor for one of the most famous and frenetic recorded dance scenes ever EVER, featuring Whitey's Lindy Hoppers.

Thank you both for this blog! What a cool idea! And I love this tune -- it is silly; nice to have a chance to listen to it more carefully when I'm not busy trying to figure out what move to lead next!

Keep 'em comin'! Thanks again! -- eric
