...Now, it ain't no Charleston, ain't no Pigeon Wing,
Nobody has to give you no lessons, to shake that thing...

Shake That Thing was considered scandalous back in 1926.Edison had the Golden Gate Orchestra record the tune.The record gave the title as just "Shake".How times have changed!edisonplayer

That's an interesting tidbit. Even though this is an instrumental version, I will weave into this thread that after the first two solos announce the "Shake" theme, the "Charleston" hesitation rhythm is then inserted. It is a nice rendition and a hot number.

Don't forget. Charleston is the best dance after all.

Then there's "Crazy Words, Crazy Tune," as rendered by Irv Aaronson & his Commanders:

"And Simon Legree

In Uncle Tom's Cabin

What did he say to Uncle Tom?

I'll tell you what he said

He took his whip and said to Uncle Tom--

"'C'mon, Charleston!'"

This song from 1929 references The Charleston and the Black Bottom as being "passé"

Good call- I was going to mention this one. Great record!

I was thinking "Baltimore" mentions the Charleston too, but it's the Black Bottom that's mentioned.
