    DISCO FOR CHILDREN

    The "Disco for Kids" album was released by Kimbo Educational in 1977. The disco songs on it were:

  • "Heel Twist Hustle", and
  • "One Sweet Kiss".

    The television show Disco Step-by-Step® began broadcasting in Buffalo, New York on January 1, 1977. The show featured professional dance instruction, lots of dancing action on the floor, voting on the quality of new disco songs, and special guests. Over the next two years, guests included Chic, Donna Summer, Johnny "Guitar" Watson, Rick James, Vicki Sue Robinson, the Village People, the Ritchie Family, Cerrone, Claudja Barry, DJ Eddie Rivera, and many others.

    The television show "Disco '77"/"Disco Magic" began to broadcast from Miami Beach and was nationally syndicated. It often featured disco artist guests like Vicki Sue Robinson, George McCrae, Melba Moore, Carol Douglas, the Ritchie Family, and the Village People.

    The following disco songs were included on the 1977 movie soundtrack "Looking for Mr. Goodbar": "Don't Leave Me This Way" by Thelma Houston, "Love Hangover" by Diana Ross, "She Wants to (Get on Down)" by Bill Withers, and "Try Me, I Know We Can Make It" and "Prelude to Love/Could it be Magic" by Donna Summer.

    The following disco songs were included on the 1977 movie soundtrack "Saturday Night Fever": "You Should be Dancing" and "Night Fever" by the Bee Gees, "Disco Inferno" by the Trammps, "A Fifth of Beethoven" by Walter Murphy, "Manhattan Skyline" and "Night on Disco Mountain" by David Shire, "More than a Woman" by Tavares, and "K-Jee" by MFSB.

    The first episode of "The Brady Bunch Variety Hour", aired on January 23, 1977, included live covers of Van McCoy's "The Hustle" and K.C. and the Sunshine Band's "(Shake Shake Shake) Shake Your Booty".

            "Stayin' Alive" by the Bee Gees (#1 Pop in the USA in February 1978) and "Best of My Love" by the Emotions (#1 Pop in the USA in August 1977) are danceable R&B, not disco. Yvonne Elliman's "If I Can't Have You" is R&B or pop, not disco. Similarly, "Hollywood (Disco Star)" by Sweet Dreams and "Ghetto Disco" by Ted Taylor are R&B, not disco, despite their titles. It's probably best to categorize Sister Sledge's "Blockbuster Boy" and Evelyn "Champagne" King's "I Don't Know if it's Right" (#23 Pop in the USA in 1979) as R&B also.
            "Let's Love Now" by Viola Wills is strongly disco-sounding and up-tempo but has extra beats in most sections.
            Major techno releases from 1977 included Cerrone's "Supernature", Donna Summer's "I Feel Love" (#6 Pop in the USA in November 1977), and Giorgio Moroder's "From Here to Eternity". Donna Summer's album "Once Upon a Time" included techno songs like "Working the Midnight Shift", "Dance Into My Life", "Now I Need You", and "Queen for a Day". Other significant techno songs of 1977 are "Gluttony" by Laurin Rinder and W. Michael Lewis, "Black Jack" by Baciotti, and "High" by Peter Moesser's Music. Some of the year's other electronic dance songs included "You Should Do It" by Peter Brown with Betty Wright, "Which Way is Up" by Stargard, "Magic Fly" by Kebekelektrik, "Delta Queen" by HOT R.S., "Disco Energy" by Universal Energy, "We Call it Disco" by El Coco, and "Fantasy Love Affair" by Peter Brown.
            Major funk releases from 1977 included "Brick House" by the Commodores, "Fantasy" by Earth, Wind and Fire, "It Makes You Feel Like Dancin'" and "You Can't Please Everybody" by Rose Royce, "Flash Light" by Parliament (electro-funk), "Funky Music (Don't Laugh at My Funk)" by B.T. Express, "Double Dutch" and "NYCNYUSA" by Fatback Band, "Disco Fever" by Archie Bell and the Drells, "Disco Funkanoo" by Frankie Zhivago, "We Party Hearty" by L.T.D., "Now Do-U-Wanta Dance" by Graham Central Station, "Love is Better in the A.M." and "Disco 9000" by Johnnie Taylor, "Ain't Gonna Hurt Nobody" by Brick, "Dusic" by Brick, and "Dancin' and Prancin" by the Brothers Johnson. "Jungle Disco" by Perfect Circle, "Doctor Disco" by Rick Dees and His Cast of Idiots, "Disco Dance and Party" by Sweet Cream, "Disco Weekend" by Miami, "Disco Love" by the Fragrance of Soul, "Disco Fly" by William Stuckey (electro-funk), "Disco Comic Rhapsody" by Jimmy "Handyman" Jones and Family (electro-funk), and "Disco Rabbit" by Bobby Marchan are also funk. "Could Heaven Ever Be Like This" by Idris Muhammad was an important jazz-funk song, as was "Sweet Power Your Embrace" by James Mason. Along the same lines is "Say You Will" by Eddie Henderson.
            The Brothers Johnson's very cool R&B classic "Strawberry Letter 23" came out this year also. The disco-flavored "You Make Me Feel Like Dancing" by Leo Sayer and "Down, Deep Inside" by Donna Summer were other big hits. "Heaven on the 7th Floor" by Paul Nicholas is a rather lame pop song influenced by disco. "Sweet Talking Woman" by the E.L.O. is a disco-influenced up-tempo pop ditty. "Disco Crazy" by Joe Dolan is a violin-backed song with a beat slower than disco. "Disco Queen" by Rhythm Heritage and "Hussle Disco" by Albert Jones are disco-flavored R&B. Leo Sayer's rockish "Thunder in My Heart" is strongly disco-styled but has extra beats throughout. Shalamar's "Simon's Theme (Instrumental)" is northern soul. "Come Go with Me" by Pockets is a great soul classic. "Stick Together" by Minnie Riperton is a disco-influenced soul song. Marvin Hamlisch's "Bond '77/The James Bond Theme" is disco-influenced orchestral and synthesizer music.
