My favourite disco tracks ever!

Disco is a little of an obsession for me - born in the summer or 1969 (Yes - I love that song to!) I feel I missed out on all the tackiest bits of the 70s but still heard lots of really great music. In fact it almost cost me my current job!

Headteacher [during interview] - And what are your weaknesses?

Me - Tall dark men, 70s disco, red wine and chocolate.

Headteacher - I meant what do you consider to be your teaching weaknesses!

When Simon and I moved in together he broought with him a collection of 70s vinyl ..... I don't know which I was happier to see. I sadly fear this will become a top 100 in it's own right, however for now a top 20 [in no particular order, yet] ......

  1. Ladies' Night - Kool & the Gang
  2. Dance to the Music - Sly & the family Stone
  3. That's the way (I like it) - KC & the Sunshine Band
  4. Jive Talkin' - The Bee Gees
  5. D.I.S.C.O. - Ottawan
  6. Boogie Wonderland - Earth, Wind & Fire
  7. Tragedy - The Bee Gees
  8. Can you feel it - The Jacksons
  9. Celebration - Kool & the Gang
  10. Le Freak - Chic
  11. Play that funky Music - Wild Cherry
  12. Cuba - Gibson Brothers
  13. Rasputin - Boney M
  14. A.B.C. - Jackson 5
  15. Got to get you into my life - Earth Wind & Fire
  16. Ain't No Stoppin Us Now - Mc Fadden & Whitehead
  17. Waterloo - Abba, oh god and
  18. Dancing Queen - Abba
  19. Y.M.C.A. - Village People
  20. Carwash - Rose Royce
  21. September - Earth Wind & Fire
  22. Born to be alive - Patrick Hernandez
  23. Lady Marmalade - Patti LaBelle

Ok, so there are 23 already - I did warn you!!

p.s. If you have forgotten what any of these sound like - how could you? No, sorry, hang on - what I meant to say was - there's a handy little site here full of clips - just don't listen to September [Earth Wind & Fire] because to almost quote The Bee Gees - a travesty!

p.p.s There's also, Disco Inferno - The Trammps (as pointed out by ms. mac - thanks! How did I forget that one?) Yes sir I can boogie - Baccara (cheese all the way!) & whilst we're at it, you can't keep me off the dance floor if Sweet Home Alabama - Lynyrd Skynyrd or My Sharona - The Knack come on (I know not really disco but this is my blog so I don't care!!)

Can we just simplify it and put down the Beatles Medley? :-)
