Lyrics

When the Commodores released Lady in 1981 Disco Fever had already cooled down considerably. As many artists from different styles jumped on the disco bandwagon it also became obvious that it was a wild mix of music for the dance clubs but always based on funk.

Disco developed as a dance music subculture in the U.S.A. in the 1970th. The new soulful music became increasingly popular and eventually boomed with the films Saturday Night Fever and Thank God it’s Friday. One Disco club after another opened all over the world, gradually pushing Rock music out of the radio stations.

The frustration of the austed rock musicians and their fans boiled to the point of Disco Demolitian Night where a crate of Disco albums was blown up. The action was also indirectly a blow against the sexual revolution that began in the Disco clubs and therefore had a reactionary undertone.

If the fans had known how much more fun and power is hidden in the elements of this music, they wouldn’t have jumped on the next bandwagon. So only the softer hits of the Bee Gees and John Travolta’s white suit remain in the memory of most disco veterans.
