We went from slow songs to rock songs??? There were many Dance Oriented Rock songs. That by the way, was a term used by DISCO people to describe the music we found ourselves playing in 1981+.-- Valitrus mention a few. Some I would play in heavy rotation, such as...
JUMP- Van Halen
The Heat Is On -Glen Frey
Owner Of The Lonely Heart- YES
I Want A New Drug- Huey Lewis
ABRACADABRA- Steve Miller Band
Rock Lobster- B-52's
Planet Claire- B'52's
Whip It- Devo


There was such a large amount of product,that all of a sudden was dancable.- All of Phil Collins, Pat Banatar, Hall & Oates, Robert Palmer
and many others. This wasn't DISCO, but it was great music!

Like my "friends" in New York City would tell their other "friends", "No, I'm not gonna shoot you" then he would tell someone else,"shoot him!"-- LOL Sounds like something out of Scarface. Seriously, it was before disco. It could be anything!
