Thanks for listening!

I didn't know "Fortune Teller" was written by Allen Toussaint. But it was. Under the pseudonym Naomi Neville. Go ahead, check your copy of More Hot Rocks and Fazed Cookies. It's there. Among other places.

The only way I could figure the date on "The Boogala" was through the vocal introduction at the start of the song itself:

Now you remember "The Hully-Gully"
And you just dug "Louie, Louie"
We got a thing called "The Boogala"
Get your head all gooey
Make ya wanna tap-dance, right?
And work it on out.
Alright, let 'em have it.

Well, "Louie, Louie" came out in 1963.  So, I'll risk it and assume "The Boogala" came out soon after The Kingsmen's hit. At least until more reliable information comes to my attention, etc.

I'm not sure about the tap-dancing line either. Hmm...
