In celebration of our newly released 70s-inspired collection, Midnight Magic, we’ve compiled our favorite disco songs just for you.
Ahhh disco…the energetic, unapologetic, and precocious queen of all music genres. Disco became a mainstream sound in the 70s, an alternative to the dominant rock music of the time, but one which faded quickly and became all but forgotten in the 80s. (But we all know it lives forever.) With a strong electric bass line and the prominent use of synthesizers, disco became the music of choice to ‘hustle’ and ‘shuffle’ the night away. With big names like Gloria Gaynor, KC and the Sunshine Band, and Donna Summer churning out lasting and outstanding hits, disco made a name for itself, quickly rising to popular fame. Movies like Saturday Night Fever, night clubs like Studio 54, and iconic dance moves like the ‘disco point’ and ‘the bump’ only solidified disco’s popularity and permanent place in music history.
So! What does that have to do with anything you ask? Well, Midnight Magic is curated to all of your glamorous needs. Shiny, provocative, and sensual, these pieces will make you want to throw your heels on and groove all night under the jumping bright lights of the disco ball. The only thing missing is the soundtrack. So here it is, disco queens!
