It Could Always Be Worse, Well Maybe Not

Confession time...

I love disco music...

Man that's hard to write...
it's embarrassing...

but since I know all the words to "Let's Groove"
and when Lionel Richie left the Commodores
(1982, good grief I need help)
I figured it was bound to get out...

I rarely listen to it anymore,
but sometimes, once in a blue moon,
I just get a-hankerin for some good ol' Barry Gibb falsetto...

and...right now, what's playing as I write?

"September" another classic by Earth, Wind and Fire...

oh how I love it...

I don't really understand why I love it so...
pretty much everything associated with disco makes me cringe...
polyester leisure suits and gold chains...
wrap dresses and feathered hair...

and don't even get me started on John Travolta,

and one thing is for sure,
disco is definitely not appreciated here at home...

Mark absolutely,
positively,
without question,
cannot stand this music...

He never liked it even "back in the day"
when it was actually popular,
(he liked Queen, Styx, Boston...the kings of the one-name bands)

you should see the eye-rolling that goes on around here
when the disco tunes start to play...

and as far as the kids are concerned, they usually leave the room
when "Night Fever" hits the airwaves (what do they know...)

but that's okay, I don't mind...
Kool and the Gang are gonna hang out for awhile
and I think Donna Summer plans on dropping by later

As we used to say "back in the day" Disco stinks!

Noooo....Mark, disco is awesome. I too am a fan of disco. LOve the BeeGees and St. Pepper's lonely hearts club! I know, it was not a great time with free love and all that, but the music was great because the lyrics were so meaningless and catchy...Deb, we'll get together one night and just listen to some disco....my kids love 80's music, as a matter of fact, my ringtone on my cell phone sounds like something from the 80's and Shanna said that every time it rings, I am to dance toward the phone like we danced in the 80's, then she added that we only did one move repetitively....

Mark the Man....come on...DISCO WILL ALWAYS BE IN!!!!
I'm with you Deb, I love it, but then, I love music period. My least favorite would be that harsh rap junk, then probably country...although there is some good country music out there. Then southern gospel is somewhere on the bottom of the list. Now, you KNOW what I mean by that Deb! A little southern gospel goes a long long way for me. Again, there's lots of good stuff out there, but it is not one of my favorites.
Anyway, DISCO ROCKS!
