From the Supremely Odd and Tacky Music Vault: German triplets, The Jacob Sisters, yodel the disco hit “Heidi” (and they have their poodles with them!)
For absolutely no reason at all, other than a need to assault your ears and taste levels, we present (straight from 1994) the Jacob Sisters (and their poodles) performing the 70s disco song “Heidi.” It’s very … different. via
Prepare yourselves. It’s Raffaella Carrà straight from 1978 performing a rather interesting medley of Beatles hits. It’s painful ( … but peppy!).
Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman et. al. as you’ve never seen them before! (Unless you’re a fan of disco. And Italian television …)
From the magic that was 80s Italian kiddie television . . . it’s disco-ing super heroes! (And Bozo too!)
Reasons to miss the 70s: Disco dancers clad in Harvest Gold and Avocado … much like kitchen appliances
Not to mention truly energetic dance moves and a catchy song. So, without further ado, we present “Hi Jack,” by Spanish disco sensation Barrabas!
We’re talking Italian disco balletic horror. With sparkles. And spangly cod pieces. Help … !!! redundant variety hour
The Stupidest but Most Interesting Milkmaid Disco Dancing (and we use the word “Dancing” quite loosely) Video
German pop band Kiz delivers their 1983 song Die Sennerin vom Königssee — which contains possibly the most memorable milkmaid on a rock dance we’ve ever seen. Truly … dial a nihilist
… Or more specifically SOUL Dracula! Yes, it’s the Spanish disco ballet company Ballet Zoom doing the ultra-campy, ultra-amazing Soul Dracula! Can you dig it? via
Just in time for the 4th — it’s the Brady Bunch with their uniquely 70s polyester take on Yankee Doodle Dandy. And, yes, it’s a faux Jan. (Eve Plumb apparently had taste …)
It’s the Michael Zager Band’s Let’s All Chant (1977) and the Caged Heat dancers discoing their little hearts out. And more. redundant variety hour
Oh, and Paul Lynde in a huge Afro. And Barney Miller, too. We’re warning you … redundant variety hour
