Seriously, WTH? They need to do THE WHOLE DISCOGRAPHY, at least up through the 70s.

I've been digging the hell out of Main Course lately myself.

I don't know. I can't hear 'Staying Alive' any other way. Not sure I'd want to, either.

Approximately a side's worth of amazing new original compositions ("Stayin' Alive", "Night Fever", "How Deep Is Your Love", "More Than A Woman"...Yvonne Elliman's version of "If I Can't Have You"), followed by...well, I tend to think of the likes of "Disco Inferno" ... etc. as "Revelation".


What the ..? :x

'Disco Inferno' is glorious, and among the best tunes on the SNF soundtrack.

One of the great disco tunes full stop. Nothing to do with The Bee Gees of course.

For BCB reference my playlist is:

One Minute Woman
Every Christian Lion Hearted Man Will Show You
Cucumber Castle
To Love Somebody
I Close My Eyes
I Can't See Nobody
Please Read Me
Kilburn Towers
The Greatest Man in the World
I've Gotta Get A Message To You
Massachusetts
With The Sun In My Eyes
In The Morning
Melody Fair
First Of May
You'll Never See My Face Again
Sound of Love

i'm sure you'll agree there is not a duffer on there.
