Learning How To Bump

Let's bump into the weekend! Professor Eddy gives you a full hour of instructions to learn how to bump! This dance was particularly popular around 1975. The main thing was to move your behind in the direction of your partner. How simple can a dance be, uh? Perhaps British glamrockers Kenny tell you the best instructions in their hit ‘The bump’ from 1974/1975. Even Barack Obama can learn you some tricks!

But you can have some bad experiences as well, as Joe Tex explains in his 'Ain't Gonna Bump No More (With No Big Fat Woman)', about a certain type of lady. It's a good song, although the lyrics are not very political correct and does he really sing about dancing? And well, you can hear German Schlager singer Frank Farian do his parts on his lip-sync project Boney M. Although they don't sing, they can show you how to bump. And on YouTube you can also hear the radio version of ‘Lady bump’ from Penny Mclean, because I play the 12 inch, without the very nice spoken intro.
