    Do any of you guys into disco music of the 70's. Those are music I grow up with. I can remember song like Staying Alive, You should be dancing, Disco Inferno, Love is in the Air, That a way I live it and few others . Those are excellent music for dancing and can really get your feet itching to dance.

    For those older RJ, probably we can "revisited" the era of Satuday Night Fever, Thank Gods in Friday and let dance tonight...

    Sorry, but never cared much for it. I guess I have straight genes. I didn't "get into" dance music until later when the rockers and post-punks started doing it. I think the dance music of the 80's was much better.

    Handyman,

    Wait a minute. Are you suggesting those 70's disco music are somehow more gay than those in 80's or latter era? I dont think so. I agree guys at that time dress more sexy , tighter, long hair,unbutton their upper shirt button to show muscular and hairy chest , so they appear gay. But the music is just fun and energetic and nothing gay about them.

    What do we get in the 80's, Michael Jackson and Madonna (how do you dance with Thriller and Like a Virgin). Their music are ok, but not as danceable as those in the 70's.

    If you want to know if someone is gay, ask him what year disco died. If you receive a calendar year as an answer, and it doesn't matter what year it is, he is straight...

    I am a diehard disco lover, since it reminds me of my twinkie days when I didn't have a care in the world except getting to class on time, or at all...

    I was only a small child/toddler when disco was popular, but I certainly enjoy it now. Disco isn't really gay at all. It was just a popular music trend of that time period - typically the mid to late '70s. Most of the artists who performed it were straight. There were disco songs with vocals and some were instrumental. While disco is not my favorite style of music compared to other genres of the time, I love that the music was created using real instruments instead of computer beats and samples. The studios were filled with violinists, bongo players, horns, drummers, guitarists, pianists, bassists, etc. While the drummer and bassist created good beats, who would've thought that a violin could make you wanna dance? icon_razz.gificon_cool.gificon_biggrin.gif

    We had fun then........no cares, no STD's (at least none that the clinic couldn't take care of quickly!) My head is still full of all the music and dance places - packed to the rafters with guys without shirts - doing shots - dancing till dawn. What great memories.
