Let’s Go To The Hop

Let’s Go To The Hop

I do believe Jim has chosen a rather fun theme today. The exuberant song I have chosen is called “At The Hop” and I have chosen to feature both the original track from Danny & The Juniors and another excellent recording from Shakin Stevens. This is just the kind of music that I loved when I was a child and listening to my old records that were stacked up in the attic. It brings back lots of happy memories of swing dancing in the living room with each other.

Well, you can rock it you can roll it
Do the Slop and even Stroll it at the hop
When the record starts spinnin'
You Chalypso and you Chicken at the hop
Do the dance sensation that is sweepin' the nation at the hop

Let's go to the hop
Let's go to the hop
Let's go to the hop
Let's go to the hop
Come on, let's go to the hop

Well, you can swing it you can groove it
You can really start to move it at the hop
Where the jockey is the smoothest
And the music is the coolest at the hop
All the cats and chicks can get their kicks at the hop
Let's go!

Let's go to the hop
Let's go to the hop
Let's go to the hop
Let's go to the hop
Come on, let's go to the hop
Let's go!

Well, you can rock it you can roll it
Do the Slop and even Stroll it at the hop
When the record starts spinnin'
You Chalypso when you chicken at the hop
Do the dance sensation that is sweepin' the nation at the hop
You can swing it you can groove it

You can really start to move it at the hop
Where the jockey is the smoothest
And the music is the coolest at the hop.
All the cats and chicks can get their kicks at the hop.
Let's go!

Let's go to the hop
Let's go to the hop
Let's go to the hop
Let's go to the hop
Come on, let's go to the hop

  1. Another popular song today! One of my favs! I hula hoop to this song. I went to a sock hop in the 70’s, bringing the 50’s music to a school dance. I was already listening to it on a daily basis, thanks to my mom, but the sock hop dance was a definite highlight in my life. I was born in the wrong decade. πŸ™‚
