LOL @muttmom  I'm in my early 60's, and I've not heard of many of the songs listed here.  Disco is definitely not my preferred choice of music.  However, I love to dance...I have a sister about 13 yrs younger who was a disco queen, and we went clubbing a lot in the late 70's, early 80's.  So much fun, dancing the night away.

 

This thread got me playing some of the songs mentioned...then I moved on to Dreamlover, Mariah Carey (one of my favorite dance songs)...Falling, Beatles...Layla (unplugged), Eric Clapton...Because the night, 10,000 Maniacs...Light my fire, Jose Feliciano...I'm about to pull up Going up the country, Canned Heat, maybe a little Ian Anderson...so many memories.

 

Hope you have a great evening.

The poster RainyDayGirl's nic reminded me of Rainy Day People, Gordon Lightfoot...which reminded me of Van Morrison, Moondance, Tupelo Honey, Brown Eyed Girl...right now, VM is rocking my gypsy soul into the mystic...oh wow, I think I'm going to cry!

 

'Night everyone...thanks for the rockin' memories!

It's not actually a dance song but I like it anyway.

Loved 70's and 80's music and dancing to anything by the following:

 

Donna Summer 

Bee Gee's

Earth wind and fire

Kool and the gang

commodores

 

and the list could go on too many artist to name.
