That's one heck of a disco top 40! You can never go wrong with those top 10 classics AND its got 'Lets Lovedance Tonight' at 33 which is one of my favourites.

My sister loved this stuff as well as all that Bacharach/David "Yessir, I Can Boogie".
Ofcourse, I used to take the piss and sing "Yessir, I've got a bogie".
What kinda wit would you expect from a kid not even in his teens. I can listen to it nowadays and your selection here will get me back into disco in a positive way.
Maybe ;-)

Thanks Keith, try and track down some of that Martini Gin you posted that this week, that should ease your tension.

Cracker isn't cocktails you just wouldn't get a dance chart like that now - have a spin of 'Hustle Wit' if you get the chance, it's probably closest to 79 era disco, whereas the rest are mid seventies..

I loved it too, until I discovered Punk ISTV, and then it was more Pogo than Disco..PS I'll be trying your mates Progathon this weekend..

Actually, Hustle Wit.. was my favourite. Not including TSOP of course for that is one of the very best. You just can't beat those do-do-do-de-dooo's can you?

Planet Mondo said...

T.S.O.P is a delight it's like Donna Summer backed by the Geoff Love Orchestra - and those vox. Superb. Have you seen the vid? You must have a peep - I'll chuck it in the bloggy.

I've just seen Hustle's 76 I would guessed 79.
