Friday Random Ten – The “Hangin’ with the Kid” Disco Edition

Parker’s daycare is closed for a training today (which is probably cancelled due to the snow), and I’m at home with him today. So, there hasn’t been much time to peruse my RSS feeds for news and noteworthy blog posts; just some posts I wrote last night and one that I crossposted from the blog at work.

However, I remembered this meme and realized it was something Parker and I could do together. See, Parker likes to dance. So I fired up iTunes, grabbed my disco playlist (yes, I have one), and decided to see what would happen.

Wanna play? Here’s how.

  • Fire up your MP3 player.
  • Put your collection on random play.
  • Post the first ten songs that play.

Here’s what we got.

  1. Can’t Get Enough of Your Love, Babe – Barry White
  2. Heaven Knows – Donna Summer
  3. YMCA – Village People
  4. Shake Your Groove Thing – Peaches & Herb
  5. On the Radio – Donna Summer
  6. Heaven Must Be Missing an Angel – Tavares
  7. Got to be Real – Cheryl Lynn
  8. Macho Man – Village People
  9. Stayin’ Alive – The Bee Gees
  10. That’s the Way I Like It – KC and the Sunshine Band

So, for a while there our family room sounded like Studio 54. Parker, however was more interested in his trains than in dancing. Or maybe he’s just not into disco.

    That sounds like fun. I might have to actually get an MP3 player someday.  I think my partner has one.  Darius likes to dance to that era of music, we have several CDs of it.  He really likes "Boogie Fever" and when riding in his Papa’s car he also gets to hear Madonna all the  time.  Sometimes when he gets in my car he says "Madonna?" and I have to tell him Madonna isn’t allowed in Daddy’s car.

    We had a snow day yesterday too.  It was good day!

    ‘Can’t get enough of your love babe’, won’t stop going round in my head like that shimmering disco ball and back beat that rolled like waves through the disco era. T, I personally boogied to each of those 10 random tunes during their first airings at the ‘Lime Light ‘  and ‘Laurelei’ on Stanley Street in Montréal while  disco dancing all night into morning throughout most of the mid to late 1970’s. I actually attended a launch of a  Village People album at an invitation only party behind the locked doors of ‘les frits doré’ on lower St. Laurent,’ the Main’, midst  the heart of hookers, hustlers and street trade of all sorts. Thanks for the memories, or like a dear old  friend of mine used to sing, ‘thanks for the mammories’.
    I like the new theme, got here by the link in the post about writing your book: Congrats on the novel too,  T.  Never had any doubt about the winner myself ‘grasshopper.’

    NOOooooo!!!! It would break my heart if my kid didn’t like disco.
