Song Description

OK, OK, so everyone has their own interpretation of what the rudiments (beginnings) of American Disco Music was. Well, I've lived it and did my homework as well. Here is my interpretation! Love it or leave it. This would be considered the theme song for,

Story Behind the Song

Listen to the song,.. It says it all right there! I guess you could say, it speaks for itself.


WHEN DISCO DIED (An ode to the 80?s)
©2001-2004 (ASCAP)
MUSIC-Oxygenial, WORDS ?Raquela
(Originally called BACK TO REALITY)

1. Sit back and listen to a little story how Disco,
Changed an everlasting craze of dance that?s now called Techno
The Latin junkies pumped a beat up in New York City
We never got enough because Punk raped us in the eighties

So when Disco died
I never thought I?d survive
When Disco died
MTV kept me alive
When Disco died
New wave and Pop saved my life ? (2nd X ? ?Here we go!?)

2. So in the eighties Disco went deep in undercover
Assuming other names we hope would never be discovered
To this day, to my surprise, there are some who don?t know
Of House or Club or Trance or Electronica or Techno.


BRIDGE (Spoken)
From there to Michael Jackson
Groups made marks, yet they were so wrong
- Tears for Fears had it all goin?
New Order? Totally Vogue?n

Cars ? Bangles, the Di-vi-nyls
Made funky songs, just like this song goes
- Can?t see how disco exist?
- Wanna know? Well, - Here?s your hit list?

A-ha, Blondie, Siouxsie And The Banshees
Annie Lennox, Prince and The Fix
Devo, Go Go?s, Oingo-Boingo
Duran-Duran, Boy George and Wham
And Erasure, Cyndi Lauper
And Depeche Mode, Frankie Goes to Hollywood
Pet Shop, Wang Chung, Banah-narah-mah
Thomp-son-Twins and - Madonna. (Madonna. Madonna!)

3. Then clubs were full of yuppie boys packed with affection,
Just waiting for the girls to give them all a big ? connection
The synthesizer gave them sounds they never heard and
Songs made no sense but it did not seem to matter to us then.

So when Disco died
I never thought I?d survive
When disco died
MTV kept me alive
When disco died
New wave and Pop saved my life - yeah

When Disco died,
No, it just went in to hide,
So did Disco die?
So it could come back, revived
Guess Discos? pride,
Guess Disco -
Guess Disco -
Guess Disco -
- Disco never died!
