In the 70s every artist seemed to hook up the latest trends, like the disco boom.
Even hard rock bands like Kiss flirted with disco on their classic “I Was Made For Loving You”. I made a Spotify playlist with some tracks thats not necessary aimed at the dance floor, but has more or disco/funk elements than their usual songbook.
A fab mix of well known Dolly Parton country and disco beats, sounds really amazing!
The newest track on here. Lenny can play anything he want. But is without best when he is soulful and funky!
Funky Springsteen – and you can dance to this too! Fab and way better then the Mannfred Manns Earth Band cover!
Rilo Kiley – Breakin Up
Disillusion – Badly Drawn Disco? No, a great look back to the happy 70s…
Listen to the high-hats here, disco or not disco? A least a little influence there!
Hard rock band my xxx, this has written disco all over!
The Alan Parsons Project – I Wouldn´t Want To Be Like You
Progrock and soft rock band thats really funky and disco-friendy here!
Toto – Miss Sun
They´re quite jazzfunky on Gorgy Porgy and it would have been a obvious choice, but this is more discoish if you ask me!
From the late great kings last album – listen to the melody and high-hats here…hit the floor girls and boys
Play this track back to back with the Alan Parsons track (see over) – one of the the coolest rip-offs ever?
Mark King´s the king (sic) of 80s slap-bass – this is an amazing track!
He is so much more than “When The Going Gets Tough (The Tough Gets Going) and Get Out Of My Dreams (And Into My Car)
Randy Crawford – Streetlife
This is a disco song – and one of worlds best songs ever – this HAD TO BE HERE!
For a band named after a dildo – this is a amazing disco track!
They´ve done punk, and Reggae and Dub, and this disco track.
Neil Young – We Are In Control
Robotic vocals, and some disco influences. Could Daft Punk have listened to Neil Youngs Trans record before going in the studio and making their Discovery record?
The Police – When The World Is Running Down
When i hear the name The Police – i think about; Sting Reggae/Pop…and this track…Disco!
Okay, so this is a proof that 80s, soft-rock, singer-songwriters, rock legends, soul artists, prog-rockbands all can unite for one thing – DISCO!
