italo disco

It took awhile for me to discover that a genre of dance music I loved in the 80’s (and currently under revival) had the name of Italo Disco.

I also knew the name of the genre hi-NRG and loved it, too. hi-NRG was big-time cardio and would send you out the door wringing wet and sometimes stinkin’. It was a good stank as long as it was from the recently showered.

A few hours of this dancing would send one home, or wherever, able to go on for another week. I spent a lot of money chasing the music in 12″ vinyl. Some woman on Lee Street near the Biff Burger had the best store for it.

There was a older Lumbee guy named Doug who was one of the best to watch on the dance floor. He had it down. He liked to tell Lumbee stories.
