Could we go five for five? My choice is.... FUNKYTOWN by Lipps Inc. This was spectacularly big in Boston. See, that song was written about Beantown, we are FUNKYTOWN!!

I never understand the dislike for Lipps Inc. OK, it has been overplayed but I pick 'em too!

I never liked Abba's "Dancing Queen". Too sugary, too mellow and Viola Wills was cool but a little Disco, light version.

The car horn, the infectuous percussion: Lipps Inc. We Inc. ones stand up for each other, you know!

Here we are again, this time let's see which one you are picking.

1) Have A Cigar- ROSEBUD
2) Sunset People-DONNA SUMMER
3) H.A.P.P.Y. Radio- EDWIN STARR

For me it has to be Edwin Starr as he is one of my favourite vocalists & live acts of all time. He settled in the UK i think in the late 70's so i had the good fortune too see him peform live on numerous occassions. Loved H.A.P.P.Y. RADIO and his other disco smash GONTACT...guaranteed floor fillers in the UK

Here is one inspired by Jay, since he is a big fan of these three songs.

1) FUNKYTOWN- Lipps Inc.
2) DANCING QUEEN- Abba
3) UP ON THE ROOF-Viola Wills

Sorry for being a killjoy!..but cound'nt stand all three tunes back then and certainly nothing has changed now.

PETE'S NOTE:: If you're not going to pick one, why bother to post?

ABBA, by default.

This is a very tough choice, I go with the United States defending champion, FUNKYTOWN over the European challenger. This will be a bloody battle since both these songs are so associated with the Disco Era. I understand how impressive DANCING QUEEN was, but wasn't FUNKYTOWN like the parting shot of the era?
