    This crossed a few 'genres' but it's still wonderful. Boy, could she sing...

    There was r&b. There was soul. There was disco. Sure.

    But then there was Michael Jackson.

    Seriously one of the best pop hooks ever. Guilty pleasure song.

    I don't think you can mention disco music without also bringing up that the 70s were a terrible time for men's fashions. Leisure suits, open button shirts, platform shoes, and oh yes, Gold Chains.

    What the hell were these people thinking?

    As far as the music, it did make you want to get up and dance. A lot of music in the 60s and 70s wasn't stuff you could dance to. Try dancing to Frank Zappa, Pink Floyd, or Yes.

    Disco was a new sound, used a lot of keyboards, got people dancing. It was fun at the time.

    Women's fashions weren't so bad, thankfully.
