Enough COVID, this month’s playlist will bring you some “Disco Fever”!
That’s right, it’s straight back to the 70’s and 80’s, John Travolta, The Bee Gees and Donna Summer. This pop music craze featured strings, synthesizers, horn sections, funkified bass lines and a four-on-the-floor beat. You will hear great tunes like “Boogie Oogie Oogie”, “Car Wash”, “Dancing Queen”, “Le Freak”, and “YMCA”.
For our younger listeners — though you may roll your eyes and think this music has nothing to do with you — Rap and Hip-Hop have roots that tie them directly to these energetic dance tunes. So put on your v-neck sequin tops, your bell-bottoms, your platform dancing shoes and get ready to “Do the Hustle”!
