How to keep Kool in the summer (Music Finds 22)

Music Finds

“Music Finds” is a series with new posts here on the blog each Wednesday. The concept is as follows:
As I listen to a lot of music, I from time to time finds a piece that sticks out, sometimes because it’s quirky, mixed two very unlikely genres, unlikely instruments, or just damn right having an awesome sound. Expect any kind of genre to appear here. These songs is what I will be sharing with you in these posts called “Music Finds”
But really it’s mostly a segment about some of my most played songs!”

It might come as a suprise to some, but my long time readers knows that I have a special place in my heart for disco.
So this week, #AREKUdiscoFriday comes early, as I present one of my most listened tracks of last week – one of my personal disco favorites, here with a swinging “live”-video with.. ehm, Kool moves.

(And the “oooh, what a night” gets me every time.)

    This week, #AREKUdiscoFriday comes early..!

  • It’s been a while since I heard this. It brought a bit of a nostalgic feel. I still can’t really believe you enjoy disco. That’s awesome!! I guess part of why they are so special to me has to do with my Finnish or rather Finnish-Swedish ancestry. As I just happened to see pictures of my relatives place in Finland for the first time since around 2000 I might as well talk about that.

    First time I remember hearing this song was on a boat going to Finland. We used to go quite often to this small town called Kaskö when I was younger. I loved going by boat and part of that was certainly dancing to all that classic disco music. I ran around those boats on my own at a very young age, about six yrs old. I was adorably independent. Or some such. Perhaps a little terror depending on whether you respected me or not. I’m very much a night owl and getting me to sleep on a boat as a child. Are you crazy? Nowadays I sleep so good aboard that it’s silly, getting old has its perks. Going by boat meant I was allowed to stay up real late and had the freedom to move around on my own and observe life. Therefore the sound of disco music has entwined with vacation fun and the feeling of being free to be myself without parent supervision. Very much like Friday feeling.

    I remember dancing the night away to this, when I was a bit older than six though. It’s layers of memories. And I’ll crush everyone’s expectations and say that there were no romantic moments, no long lost lovers in Finland, simply enjoying the journey and open sea. I did dream though. That one day I’d get do the same trip with my own family. I had forgotten that.

    Why else tell stories if there’s no one around to enjoy them? I think part of why I want to write comes from listening to all those great stories told to me in Finland, quite the storytellers my relatives and of course there was Moomin and other Tove Jansson stories being read to me as well. Good times.

    This song has not lost its magic on me. And those Kool moves, how could you not like them? Impossible! Maybe I’ll even feel like a lady one of these days. I think I might.

    Your disco vibe gets my heart every time
