Let Me Love You Tonight

Vicky Edimo ‎– Let Me Love You Tonight -1980

Vicky Edimo – Let Me Love You Tonight

(1980, Zagora ‎- FR / Mariann ‎- SWE)

Daddy Daft Punk on board, I mean Mr. Vangarde aka Daniel Bangalter is behind this funny production for Victor Edimo. Please don’t say cheesy, it’s a simple song like a marshmallow neither less nor more. And I like it just the way it is… mmm Don’t take it too seriously disco is D.I.S.C.O. SooOo good.

The House of Truth

saw

Jay C. Corry – The House of Truth

There’s something sinister about this tune. Gazing into the darkness of the revolving vinyl platter you get a feeling that in the depths of the grooves, something perverted holds sway. Did the master tape somehow get contaminated by the artists during the recording session and subsequently, all the pressings?

Manolo, Un Poquito Mas

quizas

Manolo Gas & Tinto Band Bang – Quizas Quizas Quizas

1976

This version by the much-in-demand Manolo Gas does not that much differ from the rest of the disco remakes of standards that were massively popular in 1976 – until he starts to throw in peculiar synth noises.

“1976” has more tunes from the period in question, most with the then-current latin hustle feel. For an alternative vibe also much in evidence on the floors in 1976 check out Brass Construction’s monster hit Movin’- you need to know it so you don’t get humiliated when the title turns up in conversation.

1975

1975

1975

“Melissa realized they were heading out of Manhattan. “Where are you taking me?” she demanded. “Home to meet mother?” Her perfume and the rustling of her tighs as she turned to check his reaction were sharp intrusions in the quietly purring Rolls. “No,” Larry drawled, driving steadily. “Not to mother. Just to a big, comfortable place. My summer house. As you already know I happen to be a terrific cook.”
He sounded like a kid. Melissa’s eyes were blazing. “Stop the car. I am taking the subway downtown, to Busby’s. I am going disco dancing like I told you. Without you. And Larry dear, it’s just as well, as your dancing is as bad as your cooking.”

Jacqueline Cole: Deadly Devotions (1975).

Helldriver

Denny Blue – Telstar

Denny Blue – Helldriver

This time, it’s war – the moment I hear John & Yoko’s whiny tune from behind the wall or ANY other christmas song I’ll turn the speakers and give the neighbour the full fury of Helldriver, a 1977 rock/disco mutation from Germany. L.O.U.D. The neighbour started it, I’ll finish it.

The Valleys

valleys

Apollo 100 – The Valleys

Another fab tune connected in no way with the immortal Russ Meyer classic – which contains one of the most important lines in cinema history: YOU WILL DRINK THE BLACK SPERM OF MY VENGEANCE! – apart from a word in it’s title and an overall mood of loungey grooviness. Had the film been made just a few years later this is what the music heard during the party scenes would have sounded like.

Į Dieną Einam

Į Dieną EinamTeisutis Makačinas – Į Dieną Einam

Lithuanian disco classic (1982) will not forgive if you’ve skipped cardio sessions. Then again, what could be a better way to workout than dancing in euphoria to high speed euro disco?

Come Maddalena

Come Maddalena

Ennio Morricone – Come Maddalena

To my surprise this wasn’t to be found in our archive, so i guess it’s my duty to upload it now. It’s maybe my favourite Morricone tune. Original from the ’71 Maddalena movie but this version came later on the disco 78 record.

マスクドライダーシステム

kabuto

マスクドライダーシステム

This vaguely Village People-ish tune is off a compliation album filled with theme music and short sound snippets from 70s Japanese superhero tv shows like Kamen Rider. There are no words in English on the sleeve.
