Disco Sucks Open Thread

I came of age in the middle of the Disco Era. It was a strange period of dancing madness that swept the nation. Don’t tell anyone, but my secret shame is I know how to do the Hustle and more than once I shook, shook, shook my booty.

    Disco is OK. I like to listen to it every now and then. Disco was pretty much dead by the time I was of legal drinking age, but I might have bar hopped a bit (OK a LOT) with a fake ID before disco died, LOL!

    Grease was all the rage when I was in high school, I didn’t like it then and I don’t like it now……just never did much for me. I did go through a brief urban cowboy phase with line dances and even a few mechanical bull rides. Alcohol can make you do crazy things!

      my older daughters were young teenagers when Grease would play on TV. I saw that movie so many times. But there is such great revenge when you have grand daughters that become young teens and their mothers have to watch Grease over and over again

        I actually have Grease next in the queue. My first wife loved it. Our daughter loved it. My one and only granddaughter loves it.

        I have never met a little girl who didn’t love Grease and The Wizard of Oz.

          Oh no I’ve been found out…….I’m actually a guy, LOL!

          Both of my daughters love grease too. I had to go see it live on stage, in addition to seeing the movie multiple times.

          On the topic of Grease and probably why I was never really into Grease……I was never a Sandy, I was more of a Rizzo.

      To this day when my oldest sister has too much to drink she wants my other sister and I to sing and dance this song with her……sheesh

    OK I’ll stop now since I’m the only one posting anything. I posted the last two because they’re classic disco AND because I wanted to monopolize the recent comments space! I just won gold or something all the recent comments are by me!

    had to steal this from a commenter at No Quarter

    Barack Revere

    Listen, my children, while I tell your momma,
    Of the unexplained absence of Barack Obama.
    Ambassador Stevens lay dead or dying,
    A drone diverted and was overhead flying.
    CIA’s GRS rushed to the Mission,
    Where was Obama?
    Gone fishin’

    Briefed by Panetta that AQ had struck,
    The Prez left for a quickie pre-Vegas f**k.
    The dreaded Night Stalker was left in charge,
    With the mission of protecting Obama’s arse.

    “What do we say?” the Night Stalker fretted.
    “How about a video?” Hillary vetted.
    “Perfect!” said Stalker, “That’ll totally fool’em.”
    Produced by Christian
    gas pumper Nakoula Nakoula.
    Susan Rice was dispatched to make the video case.
    Thus ending her chance at Secretary of State.

    Obama rose the next morn and jetted to Vegas.
    Raising the cash that would make him most famous.
    Hillary responded, “What does it matter?”
    Even as pantsuits grew fatter and fatter.

    Will we ever know the truth of what really happened?
    At this point we can only imagine.

    Great thread. Interesting that at the same time as disco was happening there were some other really cool styles of music and dancing happening in other parts of the world that most people have no idea were going on. The one I find most interesting and am really only getting into now, even though I knew a bit about it before, is referred to as Northern Soul. It was a phenomenon in the blue collar cities in southern and central England. The Wigan Casino in Manchester was its castle from the 60-80s. Most interesting of all is that all of the classic Northern Soul tunes were all American soul and r&b tunes that no one in America ever heard of!!! This is an enjoyable little trip through this music and the great dancing…you didn’t need a partner…you just hit the dancefloor…
