It’s always a good time when it comes to watching your favourite TV shows. No matter the taste, there’s something for everybody. Earlier, the Hulu series “How I Met Your Father” premiered its 2nd season. The spinoff of the popular “How I Met Your Mother” series has featured a few hit song on its soundtrack, but for the season premiere, it featured a global Reggae classic.

On the episode titled “Cool and Chill“, Marcia Griffiths’Electric Slide” was featured. Originally called “Electric Boogie” which was recorded and produced by the late Bunny Wailer in 1976, and released in 1980 and 1989, “Electric Slide” lived a few lives over the years. While it was a minor hit for Wailer in the late 70s and 80s, Marcia Griffiths’ 1983 version of the record was released and became a minor hit as well. It wasn’t until 1989 when a remixed version that was featured on Griffiths’ “Carousel” album quickly made it a dance staple around the world. The new version gave birth to the “Electric Slide” dance, which became the official dance for cookouts, family gatherings, Weddings, and various celebrations and events over the years.

The premiere episode of “How I Met Your Father” featured a Wedding conversation, and was suggested by a cast member to include it in a Playlist, to which it was met with rejection. “Electric Slide” was previously featured in the Marvel series “She-Hulk, and was sampled last year on Cardi B’s “Hot Sh**” featuring Kanye West and Lil Durk. “How I Met Your Father” is a weekly series featured on the Hulu streaming platform.

OLDIES SUNDAY: Bunny Wailer – Electric Boogie (1980)


Today, we celebrate another Jamaican music Icon who has transitioned to the big session in the afterlife. Today on Oldies Sunday, we go back in time to check out the classic “Electric Boogie” by “Jah B“, the “Blackheart Man”, and the last Wailer, Bunny Wailer.

Produced through his Solomonic Music label and released in 1980, Bunny Wailer gave us a song that was bound to make us move! With his “Electric Boogie”, we were gonna get shockwaves of good energy from the dynamic production, and Bunny’s attention grabbing lyrics. Originally written and recorded in 1976, “Electric Boogie” did not perform very well when released, but when Marcia Griffith re-recorded it and released it in 1983, it began to catch on. When Marcia’s version got remixed and released in 1989 for her “Carousel” album paired with the “Electric Slide” line dance, it became a smash hit, and one of the most successful singles by a female Reggae Artist ever. “Electric Boogie” would also get a re-release in 1989 along with an energetic music video. It was featured on Bunny’s 1993 album, “Just Be Nice“. “Electric Boogie” still gets plays worldwide, and remains one of Bunny Wailer’s most recognized songs. Born Neville Livingston, Bunny Wailer passed away on March 2, 2021 at the age of 73. May his legacy live on!

THANK YOU BUNNY WAILER!
