Today In Oldies 8/18/2010

This just in @ Golden Hits Radio...........


This week, Everything Oldies reminds you that EVERYBODY did Disco in its heyday.....including the very last people you'd ever expect.  So far, we've spotlighted Disco songs by KISS and The Grateful Dead.  Today, we move even further away from the "typical" Disco act. 

The Clash were at the forefront of punk rock in the late 70's, and at their peak, they were referred to by fans as "The Only Band That Matters".   Their songs evoked a much angrier, louder Bob Dylan.  Disco might have been the last place you'd think they'd be hanging around, but the lure of the polyester suit was just too great, prompting The Clash to record "The Magnificent Seven" in 1980.  The song was a Top 20 U.S. Disco chart hit in Billboard in early 1982. 

Proving once again that, at its height, EVERYBODY did at least one Disco song, we offer more proof from "The Only Band That Matters".......

Which unsuspecting superstar will be the victim of tomorrow's edition of EVERYBODY Did Disco?  Come back to find out, and in the meantime (***GIANT HINT COMING***) start spreadin' the news about Everything Oldies @ Golden Hits Radio!
