“(Shake, Shake, Shake) Shake Your Booty” is a song recorded and released in 1976 by KC and the Sunshine Band for the album Part 3. The song became their third number-one hit on the Billboard Hot 100, as well as their third number-one on the soul singles chart. The song was met with a degree of controversy, since the lyrics were interpreted by many as having sexual connotations. The b-side of Shake Your Booty was “Boogie Shoes”, which later became a hit on its own when it appeared on the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack in 1978. Richard Finch explained to Songfacts that this song was directly inspired by dance moves they witnessed in clubs, especially when dancers broke loose and started to “shake their booty” (US slang for ‘bum’).
