Bath House Beats 3 on Spotify

Hope you like ITALO. This is a playlist that is in progress – mostly mid ’80s. Steamy synthesized swish…clean towels and free water. The soundtrack that was the same no matter what city, what country or what continent you happened to be inhabiting that weekend. This is the international sound of gay disco. It plays through the mist that surrounds you now and from the cassette you will take back with you tomorrow. Alone in your premium priced privacy your key bracelet has locked the door and you are secure. Recline and listen hard. Resting and reflecting with eyes toward a ceiling, seeing what you are feeling, you are anywhere at once. You are feeling a new kind of big belonging. Then…

“Attention – Lockers fourteen, nineteen and thirty seven, you must renew. Fourteen, nineteen and thirty seven – you must renew now at the entrance desk.”

(pause)

“Attention, s’il vous plaît – Les casiers 14, 19 et 37 doivent être renouvelés Les casiers quatorze, dix-neuf et trente-sept doivent être remplacés au guichet.”

‘Ouch. That was way too loud.’ Time to take another lap and maybe bum a cigarette. “Wow, this music literally never ends.”

A New Year’s Affirmation Inside A Very Fine Cheese

Enjoy this barely polished, low quality, Hi-definition disco-pop gem from the German “So gay but not gay” duo, Modern Talking. Learn the lyrics and remember them through the coming year.

You Can Win If You Want, If You Want It You Will Win – mantra

You meaning “I” that is, you are you to me but I am me to myself so when I repeat this disco mantra I say “you” but I mean ” I.”  right? wait…who am I again?

Valued readers I wish you all a winning new year filled with one finger piano solos, a bold abuse of bronzer and catchy falsetto backups over a throbbing bass that just makes you feel like, “giddy-up ,giddy’up, giddy-up!”

Let’s go!

You can win if you want
If you want it, you will win
On your way you will see that life is more than fantasy
Take my hand, follow me
Oh, you’ve got a brand new friend for your life

Earlene Bentley – Point Of No Return

I owe this one to DJ’s Sister Dimension and Jeffrey Hinton. If you have carpeting, this track will give you a lot of static. ZAPP!

Earlene Bentley, people, a regal New York lady and the best friend of Miquel Brown! She did a duet with Sylvester. Ahkay?

Told.

Great cover. The lips are a masterpiece. Keep it simple.

Does anybody out there have the DUB VERSION? Need it. Want it. Trouble sleeping with out it.

Lorraine McKane – Let The Night Take The Blame

I can’t believe I forgot to play this at the Laforce and Stevens party at The Eagle…

lorraine-mckane-let-the-night-take-the-blame-injection

This is truly classic gay disco. It’s like disco Scarlatti. The arpeggios in the breakdown bring the classical drama and the arrangement is superior. The feeling is melancholy but energized – fully alive. The lyrics encourage abandoning your concepts of your own lifetime and living only for “these few hours.” Wow. As I look at it now what seemed then to be so shallow and fleeting appears to be so deep and enduring… or am I (still) just too much?

Ladies and gentlemen, from 1984 and Beyond, Profile Records recording artist, Miss Lorraine McKane

coming up! Earlene Bentley. And now back to your DJ, Anonymous.
