DebW07 is the “Disco Queen” 70′s Contributor

deb_bev_dd_95_squid_dq_articleToday we’re proudly introducing DebW07.   She’s our “Disco Queen” 70′s Contributor.

Tell us a little bit about your niche topic.
“Stayin’ alive. Stayin’ alive . . .” Can you guess? You got it! I’m the “Disco Queen” 70′s Contributor and I will cover all things 70s/disco. I will be featuring articles on music, movies, fashion, fads, and more. I’ve got lots of ideas swirling around in my head and I’d like to hear from anyone with 70s/disco stories, information, or ideas. I’d also like to invite everyone to write a review on their favorite disco or 70s subject. If you’re interested, take a look at my Squidoo contributor page for more information.

Tell us about the moment you fell in love with your topic. Was it an immediate thing or did it happen over time?
It was definitely over time. I love 70′s music for a couple of reasons, first, because it’s good music, and second, because it reminds me of all the happy times I had when I was young. I was a teenager during the “disco decade” (or, as my kids like to refer to it, “The Stone age”) and I remember blasting my songs in the cassette player of my first car, going to concerts, dances, and movies with my friends, and just being happy-go-lucky. I never stopped listening to 70′s music, my iPod is full of my favorite 70′s songs and my car radio is set to the 70′s station ALL THE TIME. I also introduced this music to my kids when they were just tiny little tots. They’re all grownup now and they know the words to all my favorite tunes. I absolutely love disco/70′s music!

Who had the most influence in your life?
While there are many, many 70′s solo artists and groups that had a positive influence in my life, I’d have to say that my number one influence was a singer that obtained stardom in the 80s, Luther Vandross. Although Vandross is not known as a disco artist, some of his songs can be considered disco. Songs such as, Ain’t No Stopping Us Now, I Really Didn’t Mean It, Never Too Much, and Give Me The Reason, all have a disco vibe. But my reason for loving Luther Vandross is his love songs. In my life, the 70s were a time of innocent fun, and the 80s a time of romance. Luther Vandross represents romance to me.

    70s music always reminds me of first crushes, first dates, first becomings. It was a very good decade for me. Happy you are helping us keep the 70s alive in your new role.

    Deb Congrats to you! and I loved the 70′s and the music as well – I think for the same reason you did, ‘it was a happy time in my life’ – plus the diversity of music and how from 1970 to 1980 it went through many changes

    This is a niche I can get down and boogie to like it was 1975!

  • Sylvestermouse

    I agree with you! I love the 70′s music! I was a teen in the 70′s too and I am convinced we always love the music that blasted through our first cars radio. Looking forward to lots of great stuff from this niche. I expect it will bring back a lot of memories for me.
