    Hmmm, don’t think that one caught on… Of course that maniacal laughter during the more energetic part of the song may have scared some people away….

  2. Freddie and the Dreamers. I couldn’t’ve told you what The Freddie looked like, but do recall that it was a thing for a moment. Like a bazillion other crazy dances in the ’60s. I learned the Twist. But everybody had to. Hula hoops helped. 😀

    • The Freddie was made to order for dancing-impaired people like me, because it’s so easy anyone can do it. It requires no skill, no coordination, no study, no practice. You just do it. 🙂

      • When young, I had learned how to Fox Trot, Waltz, and Square Dance. Of course, in High School, these didn’t serve. I didn’t know the Frug from the Mashed Potato. Danced a lot; I just shuffled to the beat (like most of the crowd on shows like American Bandstand).

        Blues Brothers came out too late to help. youtu.be/qdbrIrFxas0

    I remember watching him do this dance at a concert back about 1965 or 1966 in Wilmington, Delaware. So long ago!

    • When I was in junior high, my friends and I used to drive our p.e. teacher crazy by doing The Freddie when we were supposed to be doing jumping jacks. The teacher had no idea what we were doing and thought we were just too stupid to grasp the concept of a jumping jack.

    From the days when you could look like a nerd and still be a rock star.

  6. On reading the comments, I seem to have missed the Freddie somehow. I was beyond my teens so that could be why. 😀 — Suzanne

    I missed the Freddie, too, and I can’t say I’m sorry!

    My hat’s off to those guys playing instruments while doing the Freddie, though – couldn’t have been too easy 🙂
