Wasn't there a "12" disco 45 rpm" featuring Miss you / Hot stuff ?
Good stuff Hot Stuff. With a riff à la James Brown and nice neck pickup guitar solos...
Edit: Yep, there was:
John Deacon wrote it but I've never heard it said the rest of the band not liking it. I think he was inspired by the baseline in "Good Times".
Queen went from dipping their toe into disco to diving straight off the high board with Hot Space.
Apparently Bob Ezrin told the band to open themselves up to the music that was around at the time which was disco. I can hear some funk in there straight out of Nile Rogers style but not out and out disco
I said "Disco" meets The Floyds Another Brick In The Wall because of the guitar. When I hear it I immediately think of disco, it goes no deeper than that, the song just brings that disco sound to mind. It's all subjective anyway as long as you keep in mind that I'm always right. So there, we're working things out. I'm glad someone posted Queens, Another One Bites The Dust, I knew there was one I couldn't think of, that's the one. There's more though, somewhere there's more.
so who's still shakin yer booty-raise a hand i might break a hip, if i hop
The guitar is pure Nile Rodgers style. Love his playing, apparently so did David.
I can't say that I agree with calling Pink Floyd - Another Brick In The Wall "disco." Sure the guitar has a funky riff, but the drums & bass don't fall into the "classic disco riff." Tss-m-Tss-m-Tss-m-Tss-m/ mm-bup-mm-bup-mm-bup-mm-bup etc.
Now the Stones - they went full disco and served it up hot & cold.
(It sucked then, and it still sucks today.)
I don't know about disco, but that Wings video showed an audience member playing a tambourine. How freaking annoying that must have been for the people around him. I wonder if he got stabbed midway through the set?
Yeah, "New York Groove" is a little bit of a stretch, but it has that rhythm.
I'm obviously at least in the minority, but I think there are some really great disco songs. And there were REAL bands playing those songs - BIG bands with horn sections, string sections and full percussion sections - in stark contrast to the dance music that is produced today. This stuff, in that regard, was at least as (if not more, in some cases) complex than what a lot of rock and roll bands were doing in the 70's.
KC & the Sunshine Band... man, those guys were GOOD - REALLY GOOD. That was one red hot band that could lay down sweaty, stinky grooves. If you haven't listened to their old stuff in a while, go back and check them out again with a musician's ear. Here are some of my favorites but they have a bunch more good songs.
I wouldn't call "Rock the Casbah" disco- but it does represent the Clash selling out.
The synth years were a killer to get through for me.
New York Groove was a remake for Ace.
Hello did it first in '75.
Sadly, there are easily a dozen Van Halen songs that could easily be Disco, for being a "Glam Band" they were often either the Peter, Paul and Mary or Metalica at the other extreme, but too often more Pop than Glam. Here's their big "Disco" hit -
"Dance The Night Away"
I don't think Silly Love songs was disco but this is.
im thinking"play that funky music" by wild cherry shoud at least be mentioned .
