"Hoochie Coochie Man" (sometimes referred to as "(I'm Your) Hoochie Coochie Man") is a blues standard written by Willie Dixon and first recorded by Muddy Waters in 1954 in Chicago.
The song was a major hit upon its release, reaching #8 on Billboard magazine's Black Singles chart.
The intro and verse to Muddy Water's version feature stop-time while the chorus features a refrain.
According to an account by Dave Van Ronk, Muddy Waters stated that the song is supposed to have a comic effect.


The song was inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame in 1984.
It was given a Grammy Hall of Fame Award in 1998.
It is a part of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's 500 Songs That Shaped Rock and Roll list.
It 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.

Meaning of 'hoochie coochie'

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.

The following musicians recorded "Hoochie Coochie Man" in January 1954:

Muddy Waters -- lead vocals, guitar
Little Walter -- harmonica
Otis Spann -- piano
Jimmy Rogers -- guitar
