Disco had a short span in the music industry of about five years. But in those years some amazing tracks came out. Songs that everybody knows, even children. The beats, the rhythm, the feel- all of it still with us.
When I think of Disco, I think of Bee Gees: Stayin’ Alive. Ironic since technically disco has been dead since before the 1980’s. But it peaked quickly with Studio 54 and John Travolta in “Saturday Night Fever.”
I enjoy Disco music tremendously. Not only do I enjoy the music, I also love the dance moves, the outfits, the sequins, and the utter ridiculousness of the disco scene. Disco just appeals to me. If I’m driving home and a disco song plays on the radio- I will always wait for it to end before I shut off my car. There’s a story in every song. Stories of love and hope with a funky beat.
Disco is not dead.
