    Probably not. I was never a fan.

    Well, there were a few good tracks that I don't mind listening to, but not the endless repetitive wall of...

    ...say, isn't that pretty much what they play in the clubs now, only worse? Except now it's all single-finger computer-generated auto-tuned stuff because nobody knows how to play instruments or sing anymore.

    It would depend on how catchy the melodic/rhythmic lines are. But yeah, probably! One of my fav disco songs is Funkytown. Love it!

    I never LISTENED to it... but I sure as hell went to the discos and DANCED to it! It was mindless and idiotic, but lots of fun and you could get laid! What could be better?

    I first came out in 1975 senior year, disastrously, lost about 90% of my friends from that last school (only knew them a year so not a big deal in retrospect but hurt at the time), came out again 1976/7 sophomore year college to my roommate who outed me to everyone by the next day. I was surprised. Treated well but it still felt wrong. Changed schools.

    So 1977/8 was my year of living as an out & proud gay man, deciding to never again make a friend who didn't know from the start that I'm gay. My disco theme song of that semester:



    Disco at the Copa
    Disco at the Marlin Beach
    I have very fun memories of disco

    The soundtrack to that period of my life was 90s freestyle... George Lamont, Cynthia & Johnny O, The Adventures of Stevie B, etc., along with other pop/dance like Janet Jackson, (of course) Madonna, etc., plus stuff from England (I guess) such as Rick Astley. As you said, it wasn't for listening at home, but it was always on in the clubs.

    We have a few 80's Clubs that play only 80's music. The 70's music was a stepping stone to the great music that was to follow leading to the 80's and 90's. Don't like 70's music although there were a few good hits (just a few!)

    I had a K-TEL 12" record with Funky Town on it when I was little.

    And DAMN that was a long time ago icon_eek.gif

    There are a few songs from that era that I like but I don't think it's not really my genre of choice. There's not enough bass and I can't very well lay my booty down without that.

    I've never stopped. Even though I'm a 90s bitch (That's when I really got into music).

    As far as disco - I can only blame my parents lol.

    Today I influence their music taste. For instance, dad likes John Legend, Linkin Park & Lupe Fiasco, and mom is really into Sia, Adele, Sam Smith, Muse, Coldplay, Imagine Dragons etc. (yeah, I had more fruitful success with her icon_biggrin.gif)

    Although the music style is older than me, I kinda like disco, it's basicly the birth of techno with all those synthesizer noises.

    Here in San Francisco, 70's and 80's disco has not died. It has been reborn, remixed, and is being enjoyed by a whole new generation of people.
