Hiya Karen...Ah! That much-maligned genre called 'disco'...

I have been known to swing a leg to some of it...only gently, mind...

#1. 'Le Freak' - Chic (one of the best examples of disco...ever!!)
#7. 'Please Don't Go' - KC & The Sunshine Band (probably not disco to some, but fits in just as well...)
#10. 'Funkytown' - Lipps Inc (about as basic as disco came...)
#18. 'Knock On Wood' - Amii Stewart

Hiya Paul!

I was heavily influenced in the direction of 'rock' music by my older brothers but I've always had a soft spot for 'disco'...mainly because of the great childhood memories it evokes.  :) 

#1. 'Le Freak' - Chic (one of the best examples of disco...ever!!)
#7. 'Please Don't Go' - KC & The Sunshine Band (probably not disco to some, but fits in just as well...)
#10. 'Funkytown' - Lipps Inc (about as basic as disco came...)
#18. 'Knock On Wood' - Amii Stewart


All of those are correct!  BTW, I agree with your assessments of these songs.  I couldn't have a disco quiz without including #1 and #10.  "Please Don't Go" came in just near the end of the disco era so I figured it was worth including.  ;)
