Subject: Fave disco song?

Written By: Robbo on 03/05/05 at 5:18 am

I'm open to suggestions to add to the list.
Also, can anyone tell me who sung "Disco Inferno", I'm having a memory blank at the moment.

I voted for Disco Inferno by The Trammps.  I love that film clip too.

I voted 'Other'.  Most of the ones listed are NOT among my favorites (although the Michael Jackson/Jacksons songs are decent, as well as the Trammps)

Some of my Disco favorites:
Shake Your Groove Thing - Peaches and Herb
Boogie Nights - Heatwave
Le Freak - Chic
Get Off - Foxy
I'm Your Boogie Man - KC and the Sunshine Band
Working Day and Night - Michael Jackson

There's others.  Even though Disco wasn't my favorite genre overall, there were some excellent Disco songs.   8)

You're probably thinking of the Carl Carlton 1974 version, although the original was Robert Knight in 1967  :)

(Unless you're thinking of An Everlasting Love by Andy Gibb in 1978)

All these songs brings to mind the memory of me and my school friends and cousins at our house parties. We switch off the lights, wrap colour papers round torchlights and wave them around like makeshift strobes and wallah, our own little makeshift disco dancefloor.

If you don't mind a lurker commenting...how about rock songs, or at least songs from rock artists with a disco beat?  "Miss You" by the Rolling Stones IMO is a great song with a "Four on the Floor" drum beat, and "Do Ya Think I'm Sexy" by Rod Stewart is IMO pretty "discoish", and one I always liked.

I chose More Than a Woman by the Bee Gees, although I also like Tavares' version of that song too.  A close runner up would be Rock Your Baby by George McRae.

I picked Other. I'm not sure what my fave disco song is, but I know it's not those 'cause I can think of examples I like more than all the listed ones, like "Don't Leave Me This Way" and "I Feel Love"

Pretty what much I've heard of disco I got from a dodgy homemade MP3 collection of 70s songs (a common site in stalls, marketplaces and even shopping malls throughout many parts of the world);

Night Fever - The Bee Gees,
Get Dancing - Disco Tex and the Sexolettes,
Dancing Queen - ABBA,
Right Back Where We Started From - Maxine Nightingale
