Horrible. It’s like someone took a class in disco song writing, and decided not to use any actual instrumentation other than synths. Although the vocals aren’t terrible, they made me think they belonged more in a European New Wave band.

Nearly all the best disco features a funky rhythm section.

Listened to all 6+ minutes and ask: Why didn’t this stay lost?

I agree with both of the above, but you you watch the video the record label is turning off-center, so maybe they’re just playing it on a wonky turntable.

a dancefloor classic!
for those that had a listen and didn’t like…it’s dance music. the only way to judge dance music is to get on a dancefloor with a sound system the size of a small european country and see if your body moves. listening on your shitty computer speakers while sitting in a chair doesn’t count for shit.

Same year “Dare” was released, interesting to hear the similarities. Love the fat early 80’s production, that’s a real sweet spot for me.

Funk yeah! Disco Lover is pure youtube gold. I like how the dubs spin.

I still remember my father’s disappointment when I expressed how much I liked Disco after watching this commercial as a child.

That’s exactly what it is, italo disco… done poorly.

This is not italo by any means but solid stuff from the early 80’s

But 1983
