I was deluged with the fabulousness and cheesiness of disco in my impressionable years. Yes, Disco. It was the time when Funky Town hit number one on both sides of the Atlantic. It was the time of discotheques, bell bottoms, afro hairdo, doing the hustle, the bump, the funky chicken and to experience the freedom of expression. Just when everything was getting into full swing the world suddenly wanted disco dead. Here are links to a few disco documentaries that can bring light from the disco ball of truth the evolution and revolution of disco.

This story is also inspired by the Dancing Plague of 1518 where about 400 people were caught up in a dancing mania that lasted about a month. Some died of stroke, heart attack or simply exhaustion.

This Disco is not a place you want to go to unless it wants you to. It appears every now and then in the middle of the crossroads. If you are meant to go in there, you will see it. And ahh, what memories you will recall.
