Liebrand's super long edit of "Love Can't Turn Around" is ridiculously fun, but I still gotta go for "House of the Rising Sun", it's one of the best disco covers of all time. Discovering lesser known gems like that one was one of the best things about this compilation series.

This is impossible.

Pretty much, but I’ll have “Boogie Oogie Oogie” starting in pole position, I think.

If it's under 7 minutes long it can gtfo from a 12" mix comp is my view. A fairly easy vote for West End Girls on that basis.

The Runner, The Runner, The Runner - so great

Tuomas and Josefa both otm. I also love the Deodato.

Going through the ones I don't know too well and Spank is an excellent proto-House heavy disco roller. Front runner so far.

Passion by The Flirts. Could go on another nine minutes and not outstay its welcome. Bobby O was so good at that.

Automatic thread bump. This poll is closing tomorrow.

This volume is so much better than #3. It’s a tossup between at least ten songs.

this is "he's the greatest dancer"

macropuente (map), Saturday, 13 October 2018 03:50 (one week ago) Permalink

j/k it could be 20 of these.

macropuente (map), Saturday, 13 October 2018 03:51 (one week ago) Permalink

but 'he's the greatest dancer' is truly irresistible and i submit would shut down a dance floor today at the right moment as much as people have heard it. it has magical powers. as much as i love the rest.

very very hard to choose!

i know ILM will disagree with me but i can't stand "boogie oogie oogie"

i sort of feel that though, it was my ex's favorite and that guy was a douchebag

macropuente (map), Saturday, 13 October 2018 04:07 (one week ago) Permalink

it was ruined for me working in a retail job where that song played 4x a day and "more more more" played 10x

i never ever got tired of hearing "the groove line" though!!

whoops i forgot to vote. pretend there's a vote for the 17-minute "Love Can't Turn Around" here.

For the most part I don't personally see much point in repping for the biggest hit tunes. Sure they're great, but very familiar and if I have them elsewhere their presence on the compilation isn't especially interesting.

go ahead punk, get your booty on the floor tonight (Noel Emits), Sunday, 14 October 2018 09:08 (one week ago) Permalink

tbf a good 80 percent of these tunes are well-known /well-worn crowdpleasers.
