    Because if we are, then I've got some great rock-disco songs that I've discovered over the past ten years:

    • "Fire" by Mantus
    • "Spiderman" by Peter Griffin (no, not the Family Guy character)
    • "For Your Love" by Chilly
    • "20th Century Foxes" by Angel
    • "Walk the Night" by the Skatt Bros.
    • "Empire Strikes Back" by Meco Monardo
    • "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida" by HOT R.S.
    • "Hell on Wheels" by Cher
    • "Alien" by Methusalem
    • "Backdoor Man" by Giants
    • "You Really Got Me" by Disco Rock Machine
    • "Od Avinu Hai" by Ricki Gal

    Most of those I don't think I've ever heard.

    BTW...I am a fan of disco.




    Edit...
    I plucked Hot R.S. Out of your list because that is a song I thought would be a challenge to turn "disco". I will say they made a very original and unusual disco version. BUT...It's god awful.

    For decades I thought Kelly Marie's record was just another disco song, then I read or heard somewhere that it was written by Jerry Dorset. The first video is Kelly's original hit, followed by Jerry Dorset singing the song over a couple of disco tracks. I would rather hear him do it in his usual rock style, but they are still strangely fascinating to me.

    There is a rock version, on the Candy Dreams album . . .


    Just to redress the balance, here's a clip of one of my favourite Dorset songs. It is a pity the audio and video are poor quality, but I coud not find better with them together:

    I cannot help loving Nile Rodgers' bass playing:

    We can, but if we do, someone has to kill us.

    I only like a few disco songs and I won't mention what they are.

    I'd rather keep my head. And masculinity.

    I wish I was of age in the 70's. It would have been a blast.
