Re: What Were Your Favorite Dance Songs from the Late 70s/Early 80s?

This reminds me of a Conan O'Brien show where he sang the high notes on "I Like the Nightlife". I couldn't find a youtube video on this. Does anyone know what I talking about?

80s on 8 and 70s on 7 are the first 2 stations programmed in my car satellite radio.  At first my kids would complain, but now they love it!

 

They've even downloaded music on their iPods, and have supposedly I'm the "cool" mom...😉

I have to agree with some others when they say Billie Jean. Best dance song ever. But I also like Don't Leave Me This WAy by Thelma Houston, Crazy Little Thing Called Love and Killer Queen by Queen, Last Dance by Donna Summer. From the 90's, Move This by Technotronic and Everybody Dance Now by C & C Music Company. Te 80's was a fabulous decade of music: Dance music, hard rock, rap, r & b....it had a little of everything.  And best of all....it had MTV. Not the garbage that is on the three music networks now, but 24 hour music vids and music news. I miss my MTV SOOOOOOOO much!

You ladies are really young!  I've never heard of most of these 80's songs I must have been too busy taking care of toddlers.

Thriller, Billie Jean, Rock With You, Beat It-Michael Jackson

I like Relax too

 

I was more a rocker than a Disco Queen, so I really preferred:

 

Thunderstruck, Back in Black   AC/DC

The big hair arena rock bands--Bon Jovi, Motely Crue, Guns n Roses, Def Leppard, Aerosmith

 


I still love the 80's hair bands, Poison, and GNR were my favorites!
