A Saturday evening punishment post

My knee still hurts like hell over a week on. I was planning a cerebral post today (or at least the next installment of the Red Cushing saga at long last!) but I spent the afternoon in bed instead.

Instead of Red Cushing I thought both of my readers would benefit from a few videos fron 1980/91 that showcase the barrel scrapings of disco-pop (until Stock, Aitken and Waterman started their own brand of turd polishing in the late 80s that is)

Aneka - Japanese Boy

Kelly Marie - It Feels Like I'm In Love (with a little bit of Ottawan's D.I.S.C.O. thrown in for added agony)

Liquid Gold - Dance Yourself Dizzy

Aneka, reverted to being Mary Sandeman and is a folk singer. as she was before her brief pop caereer. Firghteningly Japanese Boy reached number 1 in the UK. Nobody got poor underestimating public taste I suppose (to paraphrase HL Mencken)

Enjoy Sally I hope it brings back good memories. Being someone who liked HM punk and New Wave, disco was really not my thing!
