More Disco Fun with YouTube

Back again with more videos.. Some are actual promo videos, most seem to be lip-synched TV performances..

Among all the others, a couple of Cerrone classics which I'd never seen before, and a couple more Donna Summer videos. Seems like the Donna fans have really caught on to YouTube for some reason, tons of Donna videos up there. One of these days I could probably do an entire entry on just Donna Summer videos..

Cerrone - Supernature

One of my favourites.. Men in masks.. Be afraid! Any guesses on how much this one cost to make?

Cerrone - Cerrone's Paradise

A little more polished this time around.. Sequined dancing ladies! Yes! All clamouring for a piece of that hunk o' man that was Cerrone (Cerrone's Paradise indeed!).. One of two videos the Monty Python crew did for Cerrone (the other was "Take Me")

Shalamar - Take That To The Bank

One of their earlier hits.. Pre-Howard Hewitt plus a glimpse at an early Jody Watley workin' those dance moves..

Amanda Lear - Follow Me

Another favourite of mine.. A classic from what is perhaps one of Euro Disco's greatest enigmas..

Double Exposure - Ten Percent
Double Exposure - My Love Is Free

Love love love these songs, especially "My Love Is Free." Classic soulful Salsoul disco.. Both videos from Soul Train; "My Love Is Free" has a brief interview with Don Cornelius at the end..

The Ritchie Family - American Generation (on Musikladen)

Yes, another video of The Ritchie Family doing "American Generation," but this time in those infamous outfits from the album cover (yes, those outfits)..

The Trammps - Where Do We Go From Here

From Soul Train. A really really great tune from The Trammps.. Love how they even lip-synced that spoken part. There's a little interview with Don Cornelius at the end of this one also..

Chic - Le Freak

How can anyone not love this song.. The clearest video I could find of "Le Freak."

Donna Summer - On The Radio

"On The Radio".. live on TV..

Donna Summer - Bad Girls

Live from 1979, looking and sounding great!

Candi Staton - Young Hearts Run Free

One of the great soulful ladies.. A disco song with such personal, painful lyrics. Nobody can do this song like Candi Staton..

Rufus & Chaka Khan - Masterjam

A great track from their "Masterjam" LP.. Not to mention Chaka's looking great in this one!

Cookie Monster - Cookie

Cookie Monster does "Shaft" believe it or not.."He's shaggy, he's blue and he knows how to chew.. Cookie!"... Love the costume! I was about to post a video of Cookie Monster doing "I Lost Me Cookie In The Disco" instead, but they had taken it off YouTube for whatever reason..

Anyway, that's all for now..

Yeah I love her stuff with Rufus.. I've finally got all the Rufus & Chaka albums now. Although I don't think she's ever done a bad album, I don't know if she's done anything as great as "Ask Rufus" yet.. Love that album!
