Harris used "Boogaloo" as his stage-name back in 1956: "Boogaloo and his
Gallant Crew."
Circa 1965, there was a dance called the "boogaloo," followed quickly by
the "Latin boogaloo" or
"el bugalĂș."

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
