Well, everybody's dancin'
Down on the Boulevard
You put one foot in front of the other
You know it ain't so hard.

We got beach sand on the dance floor
Coppertone in the breeze
Carolina shaggin'
Beneath palmetto trees.

Young and old together
Shaggin' away their blues
Everybody's havin' a real good time
Put on your dancin' shoes.

I'll meet you down at Sharky's
Or maybe down by the pier
Anytime past sundown
We'll be Carolina Shaggin' here

Fun tune, has a good beat and definitely would be a popular dance song. Nice one. Which sax was that for the solo?

Very authentic to this sub-genre with your chord progression, tempo and instrumentation and is current with what local talent is producing here in the Myrtle Beach area.

The lyrics are true to the vernacular the SOS (Society of Shaggers) club all up and down the eastern seaboard.

All around good song and I enjoyed my listen.

Indeed a fun tune, but professionally arranged and sung!

Very cool and extremely well done.
But I have a different definition of shagging which adds a new dimension to the song.
Cheers.

Certainly doesn't mean dancing here in Australia. Liked the song very catchy well performed with a nice hook.

Great track, Bob.

Yes, it does have unfortunate connotations here, unless you're particularly extrovert.

Obviously, I can't vouch for it's authenticity, but I loved it.

Cheers, ROG.

Rob,

Yeh, shagging certainly has a different meaning over here!!
Don't remember when I first heard of the dance, all those years back, but I do remember the boys and I having a good laugh at the time!

Enjoyed the song a lot tho' grin

Well done, Robert. Good write.

Good harmonies! Fun horns. Smooth...

What about a Florida Swamp Dance song? "The Withlacoochee Waltz"...

Thanks for the listen guys, and the kind remarks. I did not mean to scandalize anyone.


The “Carolina Shag” is an innocuous dance step, and totally unrelated to the British/Australian slang use of the term.

There are even shag dancing competitions:

Hey Kevin. That was actually two saxes. The first phrase is a "RT417", the rest is "RT716". Repeated regens didn't get what I wanted in just one sax.

Hey Tommy. Thanks for the kind words. We're hoping to get some airplay on Surf Radio (Myrtle Beach) with this one. We wouldn't be able to hear it, but maybe Charlie would. grin

Bob, to make your dream come true, get your song on this local Myrtle Beach radio station and it will be shared with the entire world..... They stream it....


94.9 The Official radio station of Society of Shaggers

btw - Carolina Girl would be a good song to pitch as well IMO..

Yeah, Charlie. That's the station I'm dealing with. "The Surf".

I'm not much of a dancer grin , but I love South Carolina! We lived in the Upstate for three wonderful years. Best people in the country!

Brings back many memories of my 60's high school
days and runs down to Panama City. There sat
a big pavilion with sand on the floor and mucho shaggin'

You nailed the feel vocally, lyrically, and RT wise.

Most excellent!

Hi Bob,

This one somehow slipped past me. Apologies for that.

This is a terrific listen, really great! The lyrics, the music, the backing and your singing pulled me in and, in next to no time, my feet and fingers were tapping along.

Thoroughly enjoyed it!

All the best,
Noel

Loved this tune. The comments on the song title were also quite amusing.

Hi Bob,

very nice sound and sung really good ! The whole song has a really fine vintage taste.

May I ask you, which effects/filters/VST did you use to process the voice ? And in general, the pipeline and which DAW did you use to accomplish such a good mix ?

Take care,
Serigo.

Hi Sergio. Thanks for the kind remarks. I usually use just compression, EQ and delay/reverb on vocals. I like the Sonitus stuff. I start in BIAB, then into RB, then I record vocals and mix and master in Sonar X3.

A new genre, but with that New Orleans vibe?

No doubt a hit with the locals. A fun song that makes you find your feet:)

Very well produced and sung.

Bob, this is a happy go lucky keeper!

If you had added some sound affects like maybe girls talking and carnival type sounds I would have sworn that this was an old Gary US Bonds song reincarnated!

This is one super song!
