    Re: meaning of boogie woogie

    It's a style of piano playing. (It's quite possible that there's some sexual innuendo there too - as there tends to be in the language of popular music. I'm not saying there is, I'm just saying it wouldn't surprise me; and it's the sort of thing that the more strait-laced publications tend to ignore.)

    I mentioned this because I was listening to this at the time: BBC Radio Player - Radio 4

    As usual, Wikipedia tellls you everything you want to know, and a lot that you didn't. Boogie-woogie (music - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)
