Hoochie Coochie Man - Muddy Waters

"Hoochie Coochie Man" (sometimes referred to as "(I'm Your) Hoochie Coochie Man") is a 1954 song written by Willie Dixon and first performed by Muddy Waters. The song was a major hit upon its release, reaching number eight on Billboard magazine's Black Singles chart. Waters' rendition of the song was featured on the Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time, where it was voted number 225 by representatives of the music industry and press.

The Hoochie coochie was a sexually provocative dance that became wildly popular during and after the Chicago World's Fair in 1893.

Since the dance was performed by women, a ‘hoochie coochie man’ either watched them or ran the show. Alternatively, from the directly sexual meaning of hoochie coochie, he greatly enjoyed sexual intercourse
