KC & the Sunshine Band version
Richard Finch said that the song was written about a DJ at a Miami, Florida radio station called Robert W. Walker, who was the first to give their hit single "Get Down Tonight" airplay. In 1977 the song reached the #1 position on the Billboard Hot 100 and #3 R&B Singles chart. Billboard ranked it as the No. 11 song of 1977. The song was also an international chart hit, reaching #1 in Canada and charting in Australia (#38), Belgium (#11), the Netherlands (#6), New Zealand (#12), and the UK (#41).
The song was sampled in at least one preview for all five of the Scary Movie films, as well as in the 2005 film Roll Bounce, the 2007 film Superbad and comic-to-film-adaptation Watchmen. It was also the opening song for the 1995 film The Last Supper.

White Zombie cover
|"I'm Your Boogieman"|
|Single by White Zombie|
|from the album The Crow: City of Angels Soundtrack|
|Writer(s)||Harry Wayne Casey
|White Zombie singles chronology|
White Zombie originally recorded a cover of "I'm Your Boogie Man" for the The Crow: City of Angels Soundtrack. However, since the song's release date, it has also appeared on Rob Zombie's greatest hits album Past, Present & Future and as a remixed version on the EP Supersexy Swingin' Sounds. The song is another different music style for the band as they are fusing disco with heavy metal. The audio samples in the song where children are heard saying, "He's gonna get you! The Boogieman is coming!" are taken from the 1978 film Halloween which would later be remade in 2007 by Rob Zombie. The remixed version was also heard on a Halloween episode of the ABC television series 666 Park Avenue.
The music video features Rob Zombie singing along to the lyrics of the song. Rob's screen time is cut multiple times, flashing to select scenes from the film The Crow: City of Angels. The video also features Zombie's brother Spider One as a sort of mad scientist host of a television show called "The Dr. Spooky Show" playing as Dr. Spooky.
