I’ve had a riff in my head for 20 or 25 years, would love to find out the song. It was played on the funk/disco/soul station (WAMO) in Pittsburgh.

All I have is one line, that’s all… :roll: probably impossible to expect a result. It was definitely more of a funk song than a disco song...the station covered all the funky genres.

“If this is our town, we’re gonna get down…”

Or maybe it was

“If this is fun town, we’re gonna get down…”

Hi there Quietstorm and Welcome to the Disco-Disco.com FORUM...

You start out with a tricky one... Have you got any additional information? Stuff like if it was a male or female singing? Uptempo / slow tempo (BPM-vise)? Sounded similar to some other act? Those lyrics, are they from the refrain or?

Just to get a little more to go on...

Great Pete !

Yes - it's probably this one. Didn't recall those lyrics, but it was a clear to me when I listened to it... So Quietstorm - let us know if this was it !!

Pete is correct. The line is from Peter Brown - "Crank It Up (Funktown)".......no question. :)

It was originally released in 1979 through T.K. Records.

Here it is Quietstorm

:shock: :D Wow! You guys are awesome! Thanks, this was definitely the song. (Now I will hunt for a reasonably high res MP3)

Thanks also for the welcome to the forum. I found this forum when I did a search on the early 80's disco named Heaven in Pittsburgh; there was a post on it that showed up in Google.
