    Can’t say I ever heard or seen that before.
    Frankly, the disco daze I endured are not frequently reminisced.

    Late 70’s there was a disco joint in Fort Myers, FL called “The Crown Lounge” and it was the place in those days.
    They frequently had “Ladies drink free!” nights and the dance floor was always slammed. It was common for the womens to leave their purses and drinks at the bar when they hit the floor, so sometimes broke doods would go in and grab a “free” drink off the bar and mill about. Some broke doods could stay in there all night long drinking free drinks. A broke dood told me that.

    Older brothers used to give me hell for loving Xanadu as a little shaver, and it was ONJ that was mesmerizing!
    ELO does most of the songs and of course ONJ does the title track.
    Physical was out at the same time and the video is still hotter than a Jamie Lee Curtis aerobics movie.

    I must have been pretty high that week. I missed that

    It was lovely back when the women wore silk stockings.

    I was disappointed to learn that after Olivia hit middle-age, she loved nothing more than to get doinked by teenage boys. I suppose that a 16 year old’s hard-on is harder than a granite dildo though. Yes, I’m jealous. RIP

      I have never heard that about OLJ and I’ve searched for commentary to substantiate yours. Why don’t you shed a little light on that?

    Well I for one can appreciate the skill of the ensamble. The look of relief from the prone skaters when the jumper made it, the balance act, etc. No overt monkeypox carriers here. Magic.
