Het nummer wordt beschouwd als een klassieker in het discogenre. De demoversie is opgenomen in maart 1978.

De terugkerende tekst uit het refrein geeft de gedachte achter het nummer weer: "I find romance when I start to dance in Boogie Wonderland". Het werkelijke leven van de hoofdpersoon loopt niet lekker, maar als ie "Boogie Wonderland" binnenstapt verandert dat.

In 1980 kreeg Boogie Wonderland een Grammy Award in de categorie "Best R&B Instrumental Performance".

Songtekst

Dance boogie wonderland hah, hah
dance boogie wonderland
Midnight creeps so slowly into hearts,
of men who need more than they get
daylight deals a bad hand,
to a woman who has laid to many bets

The mirror stares you in the face and says
"baby, uh uh it don't work"
you say your prayers though you don't care
you dance and shake the hurt
dance boogie wonderland hah, hah
dance boogie wonderland

Sound fly through the night
I chase my vinyl dreams to boogie wonderland
I find romance when I start dance in boogie wonderland
I find romance when I start dance in boogie wonderland


oh,All the love in the world can't be gone
all the need to be loved can't be wrong
All the records are playing
and my heart keeps saying
"boogie wonderland, wonderland"
dance boogie wonderland hah, hah
dance boogie wonderland hah, hah

I find romance when I start dance in boogie wonderland
I find romance when I start dance in boogie wonderland
dance boogie wonderland hah, hah
dance boogie wonderland hah, hah

and my heart keeps saying

dance boogie wonderland hah, hah

I find romance when I start dance in boogie wonderland
I find romance when I start dance in boogie wonderland
dance boogie wonderland hah, hah
