*”Who was the first musician to say “Throw your hands in the air and wave ’em like you just don’t care” and on what song?”

*From quora.com:

Sean McAleavy, musician

There are those who make the claim it was Bach. But it is fairly common knowledge that Bach was a stodgy party pooper who would never try and hype a party. Furthermore, his overindulgence of mutton and mead gave him a severe case of gout that discolored his fingernails a moldy black color and he kept them stuffed into the tiny pockets on his waistcoat. Newly discovered renaissance graffiti suggests it was Rachmaninoff who was responsible for the party cheer. It should also be noted that both the sayings, “I see ya tryna finesse” and “Woop Woop” are also attributed to Rachmaninoff.

Sorry I’m late to the party, but there is an older occurrence.

1972. Aretha Franklin. Rock Steady.

“Wave your hands up in the air
(Got the feeling and ain’t got a care)”

Methinks the rappers modernized this phrase for their songs.”
