  1. Top Ten Best Italo-Disco Songs Ever!!!

     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    America killed disco music back in the late 70s and Europe fought back by coming up with cool new subgenres in the dance and disco world so Italo-Disco was born out of the ashes of disco music in the late 70s and it’s certainly the evolution of disco dance music. Italo-Disco was mostly popular in Italy and Germany later reaching as far as France, UK, Spain and elsewhere on the main continent and Italo-Disco was the main form of dance music throughout most of the 80s there. Here in the states it was known as Hi-NRG because really disco was dead here and Italo-Disco was too Euro! Whatever you want to call it though I love my Italo-Disco. Ok it could get a bit cheesy but boy this subgenre has some of the best tracks ever in the dance and electronic music world and I’ve compiled the Top Ten best Italo-Disco Songs ever below and if you’re new to this style of music but do like dance and electronic music then you will certainly like these. Most of these were underground hits here in the states but you might have heard one or two here and there. Mostly Problèmes d’Amour  by Alexander Robotnick which was featured in a scene in National Lampoons European Vacation.

    Others songs on this Top Ten best Italo-Disco Songs ever list you might have heard of are I’m Ready by Kano a very sexy, dance track with an electro disco beat. It has been featured on countless compilations lately and if you don’t know Kano you need to know of Kano. And I’m not speaking of Kano the rapper. Hell no! Check out their very excellent Greatest Hits of excellent Italo-Disco songs. They had a bigger hit in the states with It’s A War reaching number one on the Billboard dance charts around 1983.

    Spacer Woman by Charlie has been an underground Italo-Disco song for such a long time. It had a resurrection of some sorts about 5 or so years ago when an a really awesome compilation of Italo-Disco songs called I-Robots and was featured on that and since then it’s been on my iPod/iPhone. If you can get your hands on I-Robots then I would as it’s one of the best Italo-Disco compilations ever. Alot of songs in the Italo-Disco genre dealt with space, robots and love affairs taking place in outer space and with robots etc so Italo-Disco suited this very well and Spacer Woman is not short of dealing with lovers in outer space.

    I recently discovered Savage for the first time off of the Pet Shop Boys Back To Mine compilation which is highly recommended to own as it’s chock full of awesome dance music all influenced by the two members of the Pet Shop Boys. Ok earlier in the 2000s is when I discovered Savage and wasn’t sure how I missed Don’t Cry Tonight back in the early 80s? Don’t Cry Tonight is an excellent example of synthy, spacey mellower than normal Italo-Disco song. It’s certainly worthy of being included in this list of Top Ten Best Italo-Disco Songs Ever list.

    That leaves Peter Richard, Cyber People, Mr. Flagio (Check out Pet Shop Boys Back To Mine compilation for Take A Chance by Mr. Flagio as well), Gaz Nevada, Ken Laszlo and Lime to round out the Tp Ten Best Italo-Disco Songs Ever list. They’re all great and excellent choices.

  2. I Don’t Want To Lose (Original Album Version) by Lime from Disco Discharge: Pink Pounders

     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    I love this awesome disco music series called Disco Discharge. There are a total of 8 albums in the entire collection 4 of which were released last year and this year 4 more volumes have come out literally! I love the group Lime from the 80s very much. They are a late discovery for me. I only discovered them in the late 90s and since then I’ve been hooked. They have that classic Hi-NRG/synth dance sound and their sound is pretty original and slightly cutting edge compared to some of their other cheesier sounding counterparts.

    Lime were a husband and wife duo from Montreal, Canada who had underground synth pop/dance hits like Angel Eyes, Your Love (which is a #1 billboard dance charts song) and Unexpected Lovers. Their albums had really cool artwork and if you don’t know of any of their stuff do search it out. This song is a fun track in their trademark catchy lyrics and sound. One of the coolest tracks off of the coolest compilation Disco Discharge – Pink Pounders. Most of the tracks off of this collection are Hi-NRG/synth disco dance that were big hits in clubs in the late 70s and 80s. The collection includes tracks by Divine, Patrick Cowley, The Flirts, Jermaine Jackson & Pia Zadora and many many more on the 2 disc collection.
