"Hippy Hippy Shake" is a song written and recorded by Chan Romero in 1959.
That same year, the song reached number three in Australia and charted in the United States but below the Top 40.
A cover version by Italian rocker Little Tony appeared in the same year and found moderate success in the United Kingdom and Italy.
A version by UK-based band The Swinging Blue Jeans was released in December 1963. This single reached the British top 5 and just missed the Top 20 (#21) on the United States charts in early 1964.
A well known version of "Hippy Hippy Shake" can be found on the Beatles album Live at the BBC. This version was recorded in July 1963 almost certainly pre-dating the Swinging Blue Jeans recording.
The song was also covered by the band The Georgia Satellites in 1988 and featured in the movie Cocktail.
In 1979, The B-52's song, "Dance This Mess Around", which featured numerous 60s pop culture references, repeated the line, "Hippy hippy forward hippy hippy hippy hippy hippy shake", an allusion to this song.
