Song: Woo-Hoo

Written by George Donald McGraw

At last, a song that truly says something - namely, 'Woo-hoo! Woo-hoo-hoo!' WOO-HOO was the one and only hit for Richmond, VA's rockabilly group, The Rock-A-Teens in 1959. You could hardly ask for a better example of the joyous simplicity of teenage rock & roll from the music's first era. It's impossible to listen to WOO-HOO without imaging that everyone involved was having a really great time. In 2003, the all-girl Japanese band, The 5,6,7,8's resurrected this party-song when they performed it during the infamous battle scene in Quentin Tarrantino's movie, 'Kill Bill Vol. 1.' Their supped-up version appears on the movie's very successful soundtrack recording.
