No mention of ABBA yet?

A band called The Beach Boys are mostly going to be a fun in the sun-themed group. And that has, is, and will always be just as it should. There needs to be ONE classic band that isn't a pack of endless "artistic" moan. All people wanna do is make The Beach Boys into another Beatles they are less tired of.
And, for anyone who has actually experienced them, surfing and cars carry PLENTY of emotion and life experience. They can carry as much metaphor as any Van Dyke Parks clever epistle.

Good call, Ovi. I'm not the world's biggest ABBA fan but I'm the first to admit that quality-wise their stuff is absolutely top-notch.

"Voulez Vous" is cool but for me ABBA is "Dancing Queen" (and "Dancing Queen" is ABBA):  Roll Eyes

Yes! Incredible song. I'm also a huge fan of Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight)

Blondie also had two disco masterpieces, Heart of Glass and Atomic. The latter in particular feels like pure ecstasy.

I've always loved "Heart Of Glass" but "Atomic" is new to me. Awesome synths and bass on that one too--thanks a lot, Ovi.  Smiley
 
This is one that was playing non-stop on Dutch radio in mid 1980. I'd say "Funky Town" is pure disco with only a suggestion of funk:

The lyrics of Cerrone's 1977 disco hit "Supernature" were written by an uncredited Lene Lovich before she became a star in her own right.
