Even the name’s got that energy to it: boogie woogie. Whether 18 or 80, there’s something about boogie woogie music that gets everyone jumping. The musical style came onto the scene around the same time as jazz but is far more associated with the ‘40s and especially World War II, when enlisted men would ease the stress with some dancing.
