"Get Up and Boogie" is a song by German disco act Silver Convention from their 1976 second album of the same name. The song was written and composed by Sylvester Levay and Stephan Prager, and produced by Prager.[1] The song was released as the lead single from the album Get Up and Boogie (also titled Silver Convention in some countries) in 1976.

Composition

Just like their previous 1975 hit single "Fly, Robin, Fly", the lyrics of "Get Up and Boogie" consists of six words of "Get up and boogie" and "That's right" repeated throughout the song.

Reception

"Get Up and Boogie" hit number one on June 15, 1976 in Canada,[2] and reached No. 2 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100,[3] being kept off the No. 1 spot by Wings' "Silly Love Songs".[4]Billboard ranked it as the #24 song for 1976.[5] "Get Up and Boogie" also became a hit during the late-1970s disco scene.

Cover versions

In the late 2000s, the song was re-tooled as "Get Up and Snuggie" for use in commercials advertising the "Snuggie" (sleeved blanket).[6]
