    Aw, memories...I had two pair of those discotastic pants...one a gold and navy plaid...the other a pink, almost orange color. We all thought we could dance.

    Boy listening to this song takes me right back being a Freshman in College 1976-1977.
    Part of a great soundtrack from '76-'80 - all kinds of music I will always remember
    Edit- I was never a dancer, or into the disco scene /dress/culture. Just a green kid absorbing music

    Raise your hand if you ever wore a leisure suit with bell bottoms and a colorful, wide collared, shirt. Both hands if you ever wore one on stage while performing music (sheepishly raising both hands).

    No form of music sucks - IF it’s done well.

    I had one like that...a bit darker blue made of some kind of faux suede. And a shirt the same colors...different pattern. :cool: In retrospect, I was so stylish that I have no idea how I ended up in sweat pants and a t-shirt :oops:.

    Disco is good music but a live performance is infinitely better. What it did to gigging musicians and the club scene back in its day actually did suck.:(

    I was just looking for my Welsh Flint leisure suit. Sewed on that rhinestone button that popped off during "Love to Love You Baby."

    i think i own like over 100 disco records from when i used to mix. i'd rather listen to disco (and lumping in all those 10 piece funk bands like brass construction and all that in there too) than anything else from that era other than post-punk/new wave. i find it laughable that people complain so much about disco when late 70s mainstream rock was abysmally bad. maybe if it was early 70s rock or soul, there would be a leg to stand on. you're not going to convince me that stuff like REO speedwagon and foreigner tops stuff like the trammps and donna summer.

    I blame disco for ruining my teen years. That incessant high-hat thing just irritated me to no end.

    Part of the reason I jumped to punk rock so quickly.

    Disco is the black hole of music. If there was only disco to listen to, I wouldn't listen to anything else than the music I make.

    Why does it have to be one of the other? Both are equally true.

    Some of it remains great music. The culture behind it? I'll pass.

    Chic is fantastic and Nile Rodgers is easily one my favourite guitar players.
