THE BEST Disco

Folsom Disco Blues

Folsom Disco Blues

When I hear that disco whistle blowin’, I hang my head and cry. There I Ruined It destroys yet another classic tune. This time they transformed Johnny Cash’s Folsom Prison Blues into an awful disco tune, and in the process, they provoke a prison riot.

CHiPs Theme Cover

CHiPs Theme Cover

We love it when a musician manages to replicate the sound of a classic TV theme. One we haven’t heard in ages is the theme from CHiPs. KOSmusic knocked it out of the park with his cover of the season 2 version of the theme, which captures the disco spirit of the 1977 primetime cop drama. His Knight Rider is equally impressive.

Closer to Funkytown

Closer to Funkytown

(PG-13: Language) If Trent Reznor was making music during the 1970s, it might have sounded something like this industrial-disco smashup by editor William Maranci, who once again proves that there are no two genres that can’t be combined as Lipps, Inc’s Funkytown and Nine Inch Nails Closer become one.

Metal Tragedy

Metal Tragedy

(PG-13: Language) When the feeling’s gone and you can’t go on, it’s tragedy. Resident metalhead Leo Moracchioli presents an angry version of the Bee Gees’ 1979 disco hit Tragedy, a song which seems to be exceptionally relevant during these frustrating days when we can’t always be with our loved ones.

DJ Cummerbund: I Will Jump

DJ Cummerbund: I Will Jump

If Van Halen made disco music, it might have sounded something like this crazy mashup by DJ Cummerbund that blends together the hair band’s rock hit Jump with Gloria Gaynor’s dance floor anthem I Will Survive. It’s hard to believe these songs were released just 5 years apart.

The Real Daft Punk Samples

The Real Daft Punk Samples

Daft Punk are true maestros, but so much of what they’ve achieved wouldn’t have been possible if it weren’t for the funk, soul, and disco songs which provided sampling material for so many of their tunes. Tuneid compares some original tracks with Daft Punk’s remixes.

Love Of The Art: Time Will Reveal

Love Of The Art: Time Will Reveal

It’s been a while since we checked in with dancer Marquese Scott, and it’s good to know that he’s still got all the moves. In this clip for Ed “Gusto” Greene & Scott Trent’s modern disco track, his crisp and clean choreography is further accentuated with the addition of colorful moving lines. Download the track here.

Stayin’ Alive: Piano Edition

Stayin’ Alive: Piano Edition

Musician Francesco Parrino splashes a shiny coat of paint on the Bee Gees’ disco classic Stayin’ Alive, giving it a vibrant and jazzy new sound from his piano bench. Be sure to give his arrangement of Elton John’s Rocketman a listen too.

Y.M.C.A. (Metal Edition)

Y.M.C.A. (Metal Edition)

Musician and madman Andy Rehfeldt removed the disco backing track from the classic 1978 Village People anthem, and replaced it with the angry shredding of electric guitar. Talk about a disco inferno; this version burns down the house.

Metal Disco Inferno

Metal Disco Inferno

Burn that mutha down! Metalhead Leo Moracchioli takes on The Trammps’ 1977 hit Disco Inferno, lending a bit of added heat and fire to the dancefloor classic. We like to imagine John Travolta headbanging to this in his iconic white suit on the light-up dancefloor.

Pomplamoose x Jamiroquai x Bee Gees

Pomplamoose x Jamiroquai x Bee Gees

Pomplamoose continues to infect our ears with joy with yet another awesome performance, mashing up Jamiroquai’s Virtual Insanity and The Bee Gees’ Stayin’ Alive. If you don’t want to get up and dance to this right now, we don’t know what’s wrong with you.

Kids React to Disco

Kids React to Disco

For their latest “Kids React” video, The Fine Brothers asked their perceptive and brutally honest committee of kids to have a listen to the disco sounds of the late 1970s. At least some of the kids embraced the joy and universal dance groove of the era.

Floppin’ Alive

Floppin’ Alive

Paweł Zadrożniak’s retro-mechanical orchestra The Floppotron is back with another great cover. Listen up as it performs a Bee Gees’ disco classic. If you prefer something a bit more modern, he also dropped a cover of Daft Punk’s Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger this week.

Breakbot: My Toy

Breakbot: My Toy

(PG-13) The video for Breakbot’s disco-infused track mixes ’70s sci-fi elements to create a world in which men are replaced with creepy robots who do the bidding of their female masters. It’s like Westworld meets Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex.

Daft Soul Train

Daft Soul Train

What if they played Daft Punk on Soul Train back in the 1970s? Nothing different than any other episode – so check out this perfectly timed dance mashup. Though there’s no way you could fit one of those ‘fros in a helmet.
