i hated disco as a teen in the 70's.
now the oldies station is playing it, and i'm enjoying it a lot more.
brings back lots of memories Smile

so my favorite disco song is "Rubberband Man" by The Spinners.
("Turn the Beat Around" by Vicki Sue Robinson is a close second)...

"Turn the Beat Around" is a great disco song! My sister and hubby had a disco compliation disc when my neice was born and we played it A LOT. She loves disco music now, and the genre has grown on me (I didn't much like it in the 70s either - except for Donna Summers). "Up on the Downbeat" is another good one. "Shake Your Booty" is a classic. "I Will Survive" was always fun to act out with my neice....... It's funny, I *know* all the disco songs. I guess music just infuses you when your a kid.

ABBA was my thing, but I was only about 9yrs old then came 'Grease'
at 11...oh how I begged my mother to get me some tight shiny pants just like Olivia Newton John's! Very Happy

For some reason, "Stranded at the Drive-In" from Grease has been in my brain lately. I think it's from a title of one of dlowan's threads.

Hard to say... I twirled on the dancefloor for several years.
"Bad Girls "
"The Big Payback"
"Get Down Tonight"
"Staying Alive"
So much disco, so little time.

Ooooh I, I love the nightlife
I got to boogie
On the disco 'round, oh yea
Oh, I love the night life
I got to boogie on the disco 'round, oh yea

Please don't talk about love tonight
Please don't talk about sweet love
Please don't talk about being true
And all the trouble we've been through
Ah, please don't talk about all of the plans
We had for fixin' this broken romance
I want to go where the people dance
I want some action
I want to live
Action, I got so much to give
I want to give it
I want to get some too

Ooooh I, I love the nightlife
I got to boogie
On the disco 'round, oh yea
Oh, I love the night life
I got to boogie on the disco 'round, oh yea

Please don't talk about love tonight
Your sweet talking won't make it right
Love and lies just bring me down
When you've got women all over town
You can love them all and when you're through
Maybe that'll make, huh, a man out of you
I got to go where the people dance
I want some action
I want to live

Action
I got so much to give
I want to give it
I want to get some too

Oh I, I love the nightlife
I got to boogie
On the disco 'round, oh yea
Oh, I love the night life
I got to boogie on the disco 'round, oh yea

Oh, I love the night life
I got to boogie
On the disco 'round, oh yea
Oh, I love the night life
I got to boogie
On the disco 'round, oh yea
Oh, I love the night life
I got to boogie
On the disco 'round, oh yea

Oh! Now, I truly loved that cut on the dancefloor but when George Hamilton and Susan St. James did their thing to it in that vampire movie, I was knocked out! They did their own dancing in the movie so you knew that they were disco hounds in real life. Loved it! Laughing

can't pick a favorite right now, but this was pretty funny:

I don't know much about dancin'
That's why I got this song
One of my legs is shorter than the other
'N both my feet's too long
'Course now right along with 'em
I got no natural rhythm
But I go dancin' every night
Hopin' one day I might get it right
I'm a dancin' fool
(Dancin' fool)
I'm a
Dancin' fool
I'm a
Dancin' fool
(Dancin' fool)
I'm a
Dancin' fool
I hear that beat; I jump outa my seat
But I can't compete, 'cause I'm a
Dancin' fool
(Dancin' fool)
I'm a
Dancin' fool

The disco folks all dressed up
Like they's fit to kill
I walk on in 'n see 'em there
Gonna give them all a thrill
When they see me comin'
They all steps aside
They has a fit while I commit
My social suicide, I'm a
Dancin' fool
(Dancin' fool)
I'm a
Dancin' fool
I'm a
Dancin' fool
(Dancin' fool)
I'm a
Dancin' fool
The beat goes on
And I'm so wrong
The beat goes on
And I'm so wrong
The beat goes on
And I'm so wrong
The beat goes on 'n I'm so wrong
The beat goes on 'n I'm so wrong
The beat goes on 'n I'm so wrong
The beat goes on 'n I'm so wrong
I may be totally wrong, but I'm a
Dancin' fool,
I may be totally wrong, but I'm a
Dancin' fool
Yowsa, yowsa, yowsa

I got it all together now
With my very own disco clothes, hey!
My shirt's half open, t'show you my chain
'N the spoon for up my nose
I am really somethin'
That's what you'd probably say
So smoke your little smoke
Drink your little drink
While I dance the night away, I'm a
Dancin' fool, I'm a
Dancin' fool, I'm a
Dancin' fool, I'm a
Dancin' fool, HE'S A
DANCIN' FOOL

I may be totally wrong but I'm a
I may be totally wrong but I'm a
I may be totally wrong but I'm a
I may be totally wrong but I'm a
FOOL-uh!

Hey darlin' . . . can I buy ya a coupla drinks?
(Ki-ni-shinai!)
Lookin' for Mister Goodbar? Here he is . . .
Wait a minute . . . I've got it . . . you're an Italian!
(Ki-ni-shinai!)
Hah?
Yer Jewish?
Oh, love your nails . . .
(Ki-ni-shinai!)
You must be a Libra . . .

Barry Ryan - Eloise, Zager & Evans - In The Year 2525 - and soul music.

Like others, I must admit that I actually didn't like those tunes when they come out and were played in the discos ('girlish', 'children music' we called them).

Currently I would say I like "Oh What A Night". But when Disco was king, I liked "Staying Alive." I loved the Bee Gees. What can I say, I was a kid at the time.

I'm proud that I didn't like the BeeGees when I was young (because my sister liked them) and nowadays (because I don't like their music). :wink:

'Jive Talkin' by the Bee Gees,Im surprised nobody has mentioned 'I will survive' by Gloria Gaynor, practically an immortal classic in the UK.
The only favourite i can think of now is 'If I cant have you' by Yvonne Elliman.

If I'm having a hard time getting people up on the floor at a party, "I Will Survive" will flood the dance floor everytime.
