Blame it on the Boogie

I remember the first time I heard this Jackson Five cut.  I was about 13 years old and on vacation with my family in Lesotho.

My feet were tapping in the foyer of the then famed Holiday Inn in Maseru as I listened to this newest hit from the Jackson 5.

The beat was irresistible then as it is now and I vowed to get the album.  Still working on that one three decades later :)

Back in those days families of color who could often escaped South Africa for a vacation in Lesotho or Swaziland.

I don't remember much more than this cut from that holiday in 1978 but I remember the usual dread as we re-entered South Africa.

No worries. I have their greatest hits cd. Just the matter of you coming to retrieve it.

Thanks Erica. Put some coffee on and I'll be right over.

Hope the snow has stopped. You know I can't stand all that mess.

Peace pretty lady.

Onward! indeed ;)
