Forgotten Treasure: Paul McCartney & Wings “Good Night Tonight” (1979)

Many years ago, my friend used to run a Post-Punk night at Korova Bar in Montreal during the same time I also did a night there. I’d go to her Post-Punk night and she’d come to my Disco Boogie night and we’d support each other while enjoying slightly different styles …

Forgotten Treasure: The Jammers “Be Mine Tonight” (1982)

Disco is a goldmine for heart melting romantic themed music, and in light of this upcoming lover’s holiday, I thought I would share one of my favorites. It’s not a conventional Valentine’s Day song but I think the message is pretty clear. The opening line is what does it for …

Forgotten Treasure: Steve Harvey “Tonight” (Francois K Remix) (1983)

Last night I came home after a long night of work and found a sweet new MIMS gem dug up by fellow disco homie Devon Eve. During the boogie breakdown I heard a guitar riff (4:02-4:09) that inspired a familiar-yet-mysterious melody in my head. The imaginary blend of both tracks …
