I Love to Boogie

I LOVE TO BOOGIE


A time of platform shoes and wild psychedelic art,
fondue, mood rings, glitter balls,bell bottoms with a flair,
John Travolta danced his way to every female heart,
lava lamps, paisley shirts and Farrah Fawcett hair.
“I Will Survive,” Stay'in Alive,” topped the music chart,
thigh high boots, hi heel pumps, the comfy bean bag chair,
The BeeGees rose, The Village People here for a just awhile,
mixing upbeat funk with a bit of soul gave disco special style.

    I was born in the seventies and remember some this. I remember my dad taking me to see Grease. I loved John Travolta and I had the Saturday Night Fever record. LOL. It was one of my favorites along with the Muppets. I also loved Farrago Fawcett but Happy Days was my favorite show. Thanks for bringing back some memories. Rhonda :) (wouldn't it be cool if I could make my happy face yellow? Have a nice day!)
