Loved Dancing On Skates To This And Still Can Dance Now On Skates. LET'S DOUBLE DUSH…. POEPLE WHOM ARE MY AGE BIG 70S

OMG! I'm so sorry about your passing Frankie! You will always have a place in my heart growing up! RIP Honey!!!

I remember this song my uncle use to throw a dime in the air in before it hit the ground I was on the floor getting it"

dude im 15 and my first fucking album i bought (yes vinyl, and i said 1st because i have a lot) was this album for 2 dollars at a thrift store

We had so much damn fun at the skating rink yeah g didn’t want to see black people enjoying them self that why they came up with a plan to destroy and conquer.

If people only knew the history behind this song they wouldn't believe it ! Frankie never seen a penny of the money this song made,,, but some other people did and became very rich,,, before ending up in jail for distribution of cocaine,,, 😲😁✌ Crazy story !!!

Dedicate this to my mom Lynn who passed away in May 2019. She let me listen to this on repeat and never complained. I miss you mom and I love you I'll keep dancing and listening to awesome music!

A mon parrain qui est partie trop tot et qu'il lancer cette musique en soirer il la connaissais par cœur paix à son âme… Tu va énormément me manquer 😔..

On this day in 1981 {August 29th} Frankie Smith performed "Double Dutch Bus" on the ABC-TV Saturday afternoon program, 'American Bandstand'…

At the time "Double Dutch Bus" was at position #47 on Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart, two weeks earlier it had peaked at #30 {for 1 week} and it spent nineteen weeks on the Top 100…

"Double Dutch Bus" was his only Top 100 record…

Franklyn Leon Smith passed away at the age of 66 on March 8th, 2019…

May he R.I.P.

Come, Loretta,lalita, lashawn, kenzi,Rhonda, moesha,💕💃🤗😘♥️💃💃💃
2019 lets gooooo

I love this song.. music like this makes my job easier to do and get done in a fashionable way. I have a full time job cleaning vacation homes then I also own with my husband E.V.P.S. Eastern Vancouver Paranormal Society PNW

They are mocking me by putting the lyrics here – we used to play that shit over and rewind on tapes for hours to get a verse from a song back then 😂

I'm older than this song, but somehow I've managed to live my life without hearing it and I feel like less of a person for it.

I always thought Wolfman Jack was the voice on this track — thanks YouTube, for setting me straight, and helping me discover Frankie Smith.

Im a bus driver. ( 39 yo white girl). Yesterday i was listening to this song on the bus and all of a sudden this older black lady pipes up and says " girl what u know bout dis song? I said maybe more than you'd think. We both laughed and talked about our love of good music for the rest of the trip. I love how good music like this can bring ppl from all walks of life together!
