  1. Disco

    Disco is a genre of music which was popular from the mid 1970s to early 1980s. The term is derived from discothèque. Its initial audiences were club-goers from the African American, gay, Latino, Italian American, and psychedelic communities in New York City and Philadelphia during the late 1960s and early 1970s. Disco also was a reaction against both the domination of rock music and the stigmatization of dance music by the counterculture during this period. Women embraced disco as well, and the music eventually expanded to several other popular groups of the time. In what is considered a forerunner to disco style clubs, New York City DJ David Mancuso opened The Loft, a members-only private dance club set in his own home, in February 1970. Allmusic claims some have argued that Isaac Hayes and Barry White were playing what would be called disco music as early as 1971. According to the music guide, there is disagreement as to what the first disco song was. Claims have been made for Manu Dibango's "Soul Makossa", Jerry Butler's "One Night Affair", the Hues Corporation's "Rock the Boat", George McCrae's "Rock Your Baby", and "Kung Fu Fighting" by Biddu and Carl Douglas. The first article about disco was written in September 1973 by Vince Aletti for Rolling Stone magazine. In 1974 New York City's WPIX-FM premiered the first disco radio show.

Examples of Disco in a Sentence

  1. Musin Almat Zhumabekovich:

    1. The world is a library in which only the conscious becomes wiser. 2. The world of people You are in the amusement park, gloomy clown fantasy, circus themes everywhere, you feel the grin of awareness forever smiling in the soul. On you is a clown makeup of hypocrisy and a flower of laughter on your clown jacket, it sprinkles with juice and gives insight. You have in your hands a card on one part, that is, the bright side of your personality, on it another person who is a joker is mirrored. You get up from the attraction chair and get into the baby car with a motor. You see a chain carousel of disunity, a horse carousel a symbol of pride, and the fakirs show a fire show, expressing their fiery opinion. You go to the children's playroom everywhere egoists go, play an American game in which many people hold their hands for days on what they want to get. In another room of the disco foam party of life-size puppets who do not want to be themselves, eerie soap bubbles in the form of clown smiles burst with the roar of a terrible clown laugh of awareness. A ghost train travels everywhere for children who will never grow up inside, gaining adults who do not feel reality, who travel on an endless journey of infantility. History, fashion and philosophy have turned reality into a paradoxical anachronism, and morality has fallen into suspended animation here expecting better times. 3. Understanding, accepting alien worlds, your world will expand to an alternative universe. 4. The human world is a fun party in a madhouse, open your eyes - this is a fun evening party in hell. 5. Self-knowledge is a whole archeology. You can find in yourself a whole, lost civilization from a past life. This is not a known inner world that is forgotten due to problems with the outside world. 6. Reality has very gloomy humor, painted with neon luminescent paint of irony and sarcasm hints and clues lurk in them. Does he seem cruel to you? You have no sense of humor. 7. Only death can write you out of this psychiatric hospital. 8. The end of the world is the logical conclusion of human madness. 9. The world is a fun amusement park, gloomy fun reigns here, funny, black melancholy is felt in the air, laughter of madness is heard everywhere. To ride this or that attraction, your understanding and awareness should be of such growth. 10. You feel the mortal humor of reality, its lethal tin. If you cannot stop laughing, then you understand her jokes. You realize that philosophy in this fun, fun, fun hell is very deep, deep, deep shit. You see how you are attached to the rails in this house of terrible, crazy fun, and from that door, which shows a cheerful skull, you will be moved at any moment, cheerful, smiling, children's train of your madness, your fate: chuh-chuh- chuh-tu-tuuu. Yes, these rails, this is a very funny deja vu of reincarnation, in which every time a completely new joke is prepared for you. And as always, your fate, your executioner.

  2. Ann Wilson:

    It was darn nigh impossible for women in rock in the 70s. There wasn't a mold if you were a woman and you were in the entertainment in the 70s. You were probably a disco diva or a folk singer, or simply ornamental. Radio would play only one woman per hour.

  3. Musin Almat Zhumabekovich:

    1. The universal mind The universal mind is a great constellation of thoughts of a single mind, thoughts and ideas of the living and the dead, all worlds and dimensions. 2. Chemistry of thinking Picturesque images of the chemistry of thinking in art sometimes use exotic elements from distant corners of the subconscious. 3. Horror smile A cunning smile of awareness and a psychic laugh. Horror smile in the soul of loneliness. We are particles of the cult era of laughter in the cult of cruel humor of reality. We are in the great psychological, comical game of society. 4. The first hundred years of life, the body and spirit perceive everything as an immature illusion, where closer to the end of the century all dreams melt and disappear, but if a person lives longer, he feels how life turns into reality with which it becomes one whole, like a ghost. 5. The plasma ball of thoughts is a thought process, the heart of life is plasma lightning - this is the fire of the universe - this is a disco of feelings that responds to understanding. 6. Time is a pawnshop of nostalgia and spiritual values. 7. In nature, instincts are a cycle associated with universal mechanisms. In the world of people, instincts directed against each other are selfish deception egoism, all this gives rise to vices and inner flaws, all this creates an internal chaos of dirty, sinful thoughts of hypocritical egoism. 8. Communication is a space probe for the inner worlds. Author: Musin Almat Zhumabekovich

  4. David Guetta:

    There was a movement called 'disco sucks', it was a shame to like disco, but then there was no music to dance to, so some DJs started to use old disco records, but the B-sides and the acapellas, and we began producing beats with drum machines.

  5. William Wegman:

    They don't care about doing a William Wegman piece. They just want to do a Darth Vader piece, or disco dog, their language is mesmerizing.
