Early Breakfast with James Stewart 4am - 6:30am
Heart presenters can't resist a boogie! Take a look at their all time favourite Disco tracks...
Toby's pick is the Bee Gees' classic 1977 hit 'You Should Be Dancing'.
'You Should be Dancing' just gets me on the dance floor every time. And from arguably the most iconic disco soundtrack of all time, Saturday Night Fever. How could you not like it?!
Nick chose The Jacksons' floor-filler 'Blame It On The Boogie'.
One of my all time favourite tracks, and I do a great dance to it... Would you like to see it?
Emma has chosen Chaka Khan's Disco anthem 'I'm Every Woman', which was later covered by Whitney Houston.
What a legend! Love this track. Perhaps this was the start of Girl Power?!
Simon chose Rose Royce's 1976 hit 'Car Wash'...
To me, it's one of the catchiest and best feelgood songs ever recorded. Although I was only 4 when 'Car Wash' came out (!), I remember going to loads of friends parties in my teens and it would ALWAYS be played and ALWAYS get everybody dancing! They make me think of those long summer holidays off school and enjoying the hot weather. We used to have hot summers then didn't we?!
Steve opted for the late Donna Summer's seminal Disco classic 'I Feel Love'.
I fell in love with this tune quite late. Madonna used it as part of her Confessions Tour in 2006. I got home and immediately downloaded Donna's legendary 9 minute 12" version. I will never get bored of this tune!
Simon loves his Club Classics, so he has picked Kool and the Gang's 'Celebration' as his ultimate Disco song.
When I was a lad, working as a glass-collector in a very dodgy Melbourne nightclub called Ritzy, the DJ always played this track to close the night. Since then, it always sounds to me like… freedom!! ;-)
Nicola loves Dan Hartmann's 'Relight My Fire', which was later covered by Take That and Lulu.
This song brings back so many memories of dancing the nights away with the girls. I remember inventing a very embarrassing dance that we used to do to 'Le Freak'. I'm sure we looked ridiculous but we had so much fun!
Margherita plumped for Cheryl Lynn's classic stomper 'Got to Be Real'.
Such a great song! I remember when it appeared in the fourth season of Sex and the City: "The Real Me" episode where Carrie Bradshaw becomes a model for a day!
Matt decided to choose The Commodores' 1977 track 'Brick House'.
I saw Lionel Richie in concert a few years back and 'Brick House' was part of his Commodores set. I think it's a part of his career that often gets overlooked.
JK and Lucy plumped for The Trammps' stone cold classic hit Disco Inferno.
Disco Inferno is the epitome of disco - a total classic! Makes me want to don a flared catsuit & platform boots & dance like my life depends on it! :) xx - Lucy
