boogie meaning in Etymology Dictionary

originally "dance to boogie music," a late sixties model of stone music centered on blues chords, from early in the day boogie, a style of blues (1941, in addition as a verb), short for boogie-woogie (1928), a reduplication of boogie (1917), which required "rent party" in US English slang. A song title, "That Syncopated Boogie-boo," seems in a copyright listing from 1912.
