Two Michael Jacksons and the Blame It on the Boogie original

Michael Jackson sang the “Blame It on the Boogie” original. Not Michael Jackson of the Jacksons, but Michael (Mick) Jackson of Yorkshire. He wrote the song with his brother, David, and Elmar Krohn. Mick Jackson originally wrote “Blame It on the Boogie” for Stevie Wonder, but Global Records Munich asked him to record a version of his own. He recorded the “Blame It on the Boogie” original in 1977 and released it in 1978, just weeks before the Jacksons’ version.
