Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy – Gene Krupa & Irene Daye

Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy – Gene Krupa & Irene Daye

by Alannah

According to the lyrics of the song, a renowned Illinois street musician is drafted into the U.S. Army during the Wartime Draft imposed by the Roosevelt Administration. In addition to being famous, the bugler was the “top man at his craft,” but the Army had little use for his talents and he was reduced to blowing the wake up call (Reveille) in the morning. This caused the musician to become dejected: “It really brought him down, because he couldn’t jam.” The commanding officer took note of the blues man’s blues and went out and conscripted more musicians to assemble a band to keep the bugler company. Thereafter, the bugler found his stride, infusing the military marches with his inimitable street flair: “He blows it eight to the bar – in boogie rhythm.” Even his morning calls attain some additional flavor: “And now the company jumps when he plays reveille.” But, the bugler is not only empowered, he is possibly spoiled, because thereafter, “He can’t blow a note if the bass and guitar/Isn’t with him.”
