  1. Kinda makes you appreciate that KC & the Sunshine band hit from earlier in the year, doesn’t it? Kinda makes you appreciate the sound of two raccoons fighting outside your window at night, doesn’t it…

  2. Anyone that has heard (almost) any Rap from say 2000 on can say the same.
    It’s just the genre. Some people like it some people won’t.
    I like the song Disco Duck and will (because of this post) see about getting a copy of Rick Dee’s album.

    In a side note: I don’t like the movie Howard The Duck – even though I have a copy. We (the people) need to preserve all (good or bad) forms of history

    • Well, you’re entitled to your opinion… I actually quite like a fair bit of disco, but not that song. But if you do, that’s a-ok… I do agree with your point on rap too.

    • I love disco and just a little Rap, (Beastie Boys, Fat Boys) – most of it, though… no.
      When people ask me about my music interests, I tell them “it’s complicated”. haha
