Han’s Worst Hits of the 70’s today- focuses on the mindless KC and the Sunshine Band. KC and The Sunshine Band had 5 #1 hits in the 1970’s- I included four of them here- Get Down Tonight, That’s The Way I Like It,  { Shake, Shake, Shake} Shake Your Booty, and I’m Your Boogie Man.  I didn’t include Please Don’t Go- not because it is that good but because it was an effort into actually writing a song and it probably took more than 5 minutes to complete.

I wasn’t a disco fan back in the 70’s- I was a teenager and liked rock and roll so I hated disco. Looking back on it- there were some excellent disco songs- and a couple disco artists who were outstanding- The Bee Gees and Donna Summer come to mind. I thought then and think now that KC and The Sunshine Band represented the worst that disco music. I was an avid radio listener back in the 70’s. I haven’t listened to pop music on the radio for years but back then I was an avid listener. I hard all the disco hits. I can’t think of an artist who had more than a couple hits who was worse than this group. It’s not even good disco.

  1. (WORST HITS OF THE 70’S) agree to disagree, I love the music you post here, and while I am a Stones and Zeppelin guy first, these songs bring me back in time, I love it! reminds of a great time in my life. (hopefully I have some great times still to come) Thanks for your posts, I always look forward to them

  2. You’ve missed the deeper meanings. Think 1975 – terrible things – the Fall of Saigon, the rise of the Khmer Rouge, Thatcher becoming leader of the opposition – someone had to take on the mantle of the protest singer after the 60s icons just became part of the establishme … oh hang on, no, these are just songs about sex. Uh-huh.

    • LOL! They were all songs influenced by President Nixon’s resignation! or maybe celebrating his resignation. That’s it!

  3. I like the way you’ve included all as group worst hits and 100% in agreement. These are the endlessly played garbage on the radio waves these days. I wouldn’t even call this disco. This is faux disco 😉

  4. I’m Aghast! The mighty KC!
    Find a formula and repeat it ad nauseam… Good choice Hans… or bad whichever way you look at it lol. My sister and all of her friends loved this stuff…The R&R hall of fame would not surprise me, unfortunately.

  5. You know in sampling these again I would call this disco – more like funk lite. Have to say don’t mind it too much in small doses like at a party. I was also digging the horn section in the Soul Train clip – entertaining if nothing else

  6. I was thinking as I read this post, “Eeesh. I did like SOME disco, though.,..” and then you said it too. My husband pretty much hates ALL disco, so there’s no wiggle room for him. I didn’t even pay attention to disco when I was a teenager. But later in life certain songs had grown on me, namely “Macarthur Park” and a couple more…

    • I hated it when I was young because it was what was expected- I was a rock fan- but as I grew up I realized there was some good disco songs. I love anything by Donna Summer and The Bee Gees for example- good stuff.. a friend of mine – back then we have heard of the british group The Jam- but never actually HEARD them.. one day he came over and I put on Donna Summer Cold Love and told him it was The Jam.. there is an instrumental part at the beginning- and my friend is WOW this is great–then she starts singing and his face falls…I laughed and said “That’s Donna Summer”– then he says “I hate it”.. yeah sure he liked it- it was a great rocking song.
