The Influence of Le Chic's Good Times

Disco.  Not a word that inspires great respect with many a music lover.  Today, however, I just put forward this simple case about the influence of just one great disco song - Good Times by Le Chic. 

This is Good Times  

 

And this is its impact on Hip Hop and Rap 

Rapper's Delight by Sugar Hill Gang

The Breaks by Kurtis Blow

And New Wave, Rock and Electronica

Rapture by Blondie

Another One Bites The Dust by Queen

Around The World by Daft Punk

Case closed. 

 

Soundtrack to Friday - the Queen's Birthday List

It is that time of week again.  In Sydney, this weekend is a long weekend to celebrate the birthday of Queen Elizabeth II.  Yes we have a day off to celebrate the birthday of the sovereign of Great Britain.  Which is actually on a different day.  Australia is still under the British Monarchy. Nice.  So to celebrate this, here is a list of songs: 

God Save The Queen - The Sex Pistols

Killer Queen - Queen

Queen of Hearts - Juice Newton

 Dancing Queen - ABBA

Ballad of a Teenage Queen - Johnny Cash

Queen Jane Approximately - Bob Dylan

The Queen is Dead - The Smiths
