I think that Chooglin is a word that Fogerty created to describe Creedence's unique style.
Mabe the lyrics might have an answer. Either way, that's one awsome song

Keep on Chooglin!

The answer is in the song! "You got to ball and have a good time, and that's what I call chooglin'." I think it's a word for playing music and just have fun. And yah, this song is awesome! I love it. I love the whole "Bayou Country" album, it's my favorite Creeedence-album!

Of course, the term "ball", back in the 70's, didn't refer to playing music (well, maybe MAKING music) :-)

Hi, everyone !!
Yes, "chooglin" has definitely got to do with "letting yourself go"
through the enjoying of music...
Agree with becca_d: "Bayou Country" is my nr. 1 too...
Bye

Cool Chooglin'

From the Urban Dictionary: A rhythm guitar style that employs a deliberately hard up and down stroke against the strings to simulate the motions of pistons or trains. A style made popular in the late 1960s and early 1970s by Creedence Clearwater Revival. Groovy!

Default John Fogerty just answered your chooglin question!

I was just following the live AMA (Ask Me Anything) with John Fogerty on Reddit. Someone asked this question and he answered it. Here is the answer, straight from the man himself...

Hello, I'm a big fan. Thanks for doing this! What exactly does "chooglin" mean?

johnfogerty - John Fogerty
It was just a fun expression that I made up. It wasn't a real word but I wanted to have a word that sounded kind of like "rockin," "shufflin," "boogie," kind of rock n roll.

Default Good old music

I am really glad to see you younger people listening to the music of my time as the new stuff really has no heart.
Take it from an old hippie baby boomer from vietnam i had all of creedance albums ever made and many other groups and choogling is what we did when we smoked pot.
Most of the people would line up and make like a train listening to the music.
Choo choo choogling. Then pass out..........

Can you dig it? I am hep man.... Jimmy Hendericks was my favorite i guess.

Oh BTW... Dont do drugs people it will mess you up in time.
