I grew up in Houston, TX. I graduated high school in 1973, and had sorted out college (University of St. Thomas and University of Houston by the end of 1976.) Sister Becke and I moved in together and we loved to go to the disco clubs in all the different business complexes in Greenway Plaza, San Felipe Green, The Galleria, Post Oak, etc. That was when happy hour was...jeeeeez-they gave women drinks all night long, but listen to this: the guys that we danced with were all into dancing, seriously dancing disco, as opposed to romance. It was like a workout. Silk dresses were in-style and it was nothing to re-do your hair and head out for the night. And since women almost drank for free and they provided appetizers at just about every club, one had one's night set.
So back to downloading songs. I got an IPOD Christmas of 2006 and it's still sitting in my dressing room dresser waiting for attention. As an aside, Clif also got a super IPOD that Christmas and ended up downloading a million songs on my home computer even though he had a laptop AND a desktop computer at school. My computer crashed shortly thereafter. I love my child, I love my child. Listen to Lou: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L2Sqts6YrPs
Ok, I also downloaded "Lady Love" by Lou Rawls http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fs97K9Fs3RE, and Barry White's "I'm Gonna Love You Just A Little More Baby" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xN38uI2oKkA , "Never Gonna Give Up" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M-XKt483vzY
And a little Abba - Dancing Queen, Bohemin Rhapsody - Queen, Papa was a Rolling Stone - Temptations, and so on. I literally rocked out completely on my three minute drive home, all the way. I can't wait to get in my truck tomorrow morning.
I have a cousin who lives two doors down the street that is addicted to American Idol and she says they're playing a lot of disco this week. Hmmmmm....I wonder what that could be about.
