Song Info  Boom Boom - The Animals
Boom Boom - The Animals
Boom Boom is a blues song written by John Lee Hooker and recorded in 1961. The song was a hit in the US in 1962 and 1992 in the UK. It is one of Hooker's most identifiable songs and has been recorded by numerous blues and other artists, including a 1965 Pop hit by The Animals.

Boom Boom is an uptempo stop-time blues song, notated in 4/4 time in the key of F (the 1992 re-recording featuring Jimmie Vaughan is in the key of E). The verses of the song do not follow a typical twelve-bar blues pattern, though it reverts to a standard twelve-bar pattern for the extended instrumental break in the middle of Hooker's recording. According to Hooker, he wrote the song during an extended engagement at the Apex Bar in Detroit. "I would never be on time; I always would be late comin' in. And she [the bartender Willa] kept saying, 'Boom boom—you late again'. Every night: 'Boom, boom—you late again'. I said 'Hmm, that's a song!"

English rock band the Animals recorded "Boom Boom" for their 1964 UK debut album The Animals. Their rendition generally follows John Lee Hooker's version, except it conforms to a twelve-bar blues structure. They also added "shake it baby" as a response to the "come on and shake..." refrain in the middle section.

The Animals version was released as a single only in North America and peaked at #43 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #14 on the RPM Top 40&5 singles chart. The song was also included on their second American album The Animals on Tour as well as various compilation albums (sometimes with the twelve-bar guitar solo edited out).

Over the years, several versions of "Boom Boom" have been recorded by various Animals reunion lineups as well as by former members Eric Burdon and Alan Price. In 2012, the original 1964 version was used in the film Skyfall.
