Earth Wind and Fire had a cover version that did well but that was later. 1978.

It was a re-release in the Disco era. "Got to get you into my life", if memory serves. That's how ahead of the times the Beatles really were. I was still in high school in 1976, and the Disco era was a serious downer for us rock and rollers. Also, rock had taken a serious downturn with the like of bands likes Journey, and REO Speedwagon. The Beatles were gone, and the Stones had not produced anything worthy until Some Girls came out. Only the Kinks, and to a lesser degree the Who was still producing some really good stuff.

Then the New Wave hit, and Punk, and Rock became Rock again. Disco died thank God.

Well, there were such performers as Neil Young, and, though not my favorite, Bruce Springsteen. And to some extent the "Outlaw" country musicians made famous in Urban Cowboy filled some of the gap. Think Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings, for example.

Heard in my dorm in the school year 1975-76 - "Young Americans", David Bowie; "Born to Run", Bruce Springsteen, "Coney Island Baby" Lou Reed, Jonathan Richman and the Modern Lovers (eponymous) especially "Road Runner" Patti Smith "Horses". Blondie "eponymous) Fleetwood Mac - "Rumors" The Ramones "Ramones".



Disco was really never popular at my school.

I listened to all of that except Springsteen. Never a fan. Road Runner lol! The Sex Pistols covered that believe it or not.

I loved disco! So much fun if you liked to dance at nightclubs. I was 18, and finished Grade 12 that year. Also went to Montreal for the first time, and saw the Olympic Village. A good year. I listened to rock and roll as well but I like dance music and still do to this day at 60.

Amen!!! I had a lady singing an isle behind me at a concert, and I could hear her over the band. She had a horrible warbly voice too.

At our last concert we had third row seats, but behind us was a lady who talked.the.entire.time. Loudly. At intermission I asked if she could please tone it down a bit. She did not. I really wish they'd stop selling drinks at concerts, it doesn't help.

Then of course there's always the handful of "woo-guys" Just **** and enjoy the music!

It got people out dancing and the clubs always had lines out the door for hours!
You sure don't see that today.

I still love disco.

Not to listen to, but for exercise there's nothing like it.
