1984 Soundtrack – Breakin’ 2: Electric Boogaloo

Breakin’ 2: Electric Boogaloo is a 1984 American dance musical film directed by Sam Firstenberg. It is a sequel to the 1984 breakdancing film Breakin’. Electric Boogaloo was released seven months after its predecessor by TriStar Pictures. In some international locations the film was released under the title Breakdance 2: Electric Boogaloo. Another sequel, Rappin’ (also known as Breakdance 3: Electric Boogalee) was made but had an unconnected plot and different lead characters – only Ice-T features in all three films.

Like its predecessor, much of the film’s soundtrack was provided by Ollie & Jerry, comprising the duo Ollie E. Brown and Jerry Knight. The title track, “Electric Boogaloo”, reached number 45 on the R&B charts.
