Space Disco For All My Friends!

smirkyGreetings, Earthlings!

Dooley here, taking a break from wrapping presents, and looking forward to seeing the latest Star Wars installment with my family on Christmas Day. The original movie released in 1977  when I was a mere ten years old. I don’t think I saw it in the cinema, but I do remember people going crazy for it. And I remember the radio playing so many songs related to space and adventure and…love.

Space Disco it came to be called, and over the past few years I’ve been trying to hunt down some of those catchy tunes. Here are some of my faves. How many Science Fiction Romance tropes can *you* spot?

Automatic Lover by Dee D. Jackson:

I Lost my Heart to a Starship Trooper by Sarah Brightman and Hot Gossip:

Starship 109 by Mistral:

Magic Fly by Space:

Spacer by Sheila B. Devotion:

Do you have a favorite that I’ve missed? Let me know in comments.

  1. OMG, Diane, these are seriously full of cheesy goodness! I had to raise the cultural level of the family by playing them these videos. J, btw, says thank-you, as he used to dance to all of these at disco parties behind the Iron Curtain, so–really–the world wasn’t safe from…Space Disco! Bwahahahahaha….
