    This song came out.....?






    Did it bring any good memories to you when it did?

    What did you think of the movie?

    I was in South Beach on the Dance floor having a great time.

    I think the club was called scores or something like that.

    Any of you ever been to STUDIO 54?

    Haha..this was my second favourite song of 1998, ( that was not a Cher song).

    I was regularly loving this song dancing to it on some platform at some bar or my living room. I've calmed a little since.

    Gordon Lightfoot's version is a stark poetic contrast, touching and sweet.

    When this song came out in 1998, I had just moved to Arizona from California. When the song happened in 1971 with Gordon Lightfoot, I was 12 years old - and I remember that version because FM radio played it all the time.

    I'm old enough to remember Studio 54. My friends turned my on to the place in 1978 when I was in college - holiday break. It was wild - but there were other places just as amazing, I think. The 70s were some partying years - and I have good memories!

    Well, given that the song was first released in 1971, it would be another 10 years before I would be born. I wasn't much of anywhere at the time.

    In reality, I don't even remember it being covered and rereleased in 1998. I assume that it was because of the movie Studio 54 which came out sometime around then? I was in high school, but this song doesn't trigger any high school memories. It only triggers memories of the Gordon Lightfoot recording, played on the Oldies station my parents listened to when I was a kid.

    Hmm.
    I didn't even know the song had been remade.
    As Marge Simpson said "Music is none of my business".

    I didn't even know there was an original version to this song. And when this version came out, I really didn't care for it. But I do have one of the CDs for the movie's soundtrack.

    I did see the movie "54" when it was released. Mike Myers did a good job portraying Steve Rubell.

    Obviously, being 28, I've never been to Studio 54, but it looked like fun based on what I saw on Vh1's Behind the Music. I even made the moon sniffing cocaine from a spoon out of construction paper and placed it underneath the clear plastic of one my school binders [note: I've never done drugs and don't endorse them].

    Oh please! Give me a break. I remember Gordon Lighfoot's original and like it much better. I'm proud to say that my musical memories go back to 1962-1963. By the 1990s, I was just processing what ever rose to the surface. I like this thread. It gives a nice perspective on all the good music to come down the pike since my beginning.

    You know...I didn't even know of the original either. Do you have it...maybe I will try to find it. I am sure you have some good views on things. I like hearing about the past...and how it transformed our future!!

    I remember the original (circa 1970) also. We had just moved to Georgia from California. My sister had the single 45. I thought the song was sad. I missed California and felt out of place. icon_sad.gif

    When I read the topic title I was really expecting it to be a 9-11 topic, but I was wrong.

    I spent waaaay to much time at Studio54 in it's hayday. The original Viola Wills version takes me back, though not as much as Dan Hartman's Vertigo/Relight My Fire does.
    As soon as Steve was arrested, the place died. It kept open for several years after that, but the patron base just shifted dramatically overnight. Then it was Underground, Area, Bonds, Limelight, Xenon, and a great club/party in the meatpacking district whose name escapes me, but all were fleeting.

    This is the first time I've heard this version of this song. icon_confused.gif

    Is there a particular reason why it should be of note?
