CHRISTMAS DISCO.

Christmas disco music is a thing more people should be talking about, celebrating and roller-skating around to.

I’m forever convinced that people who say they “hate Christmas music” only say that because they’ve heard the same Christmas songs repeatedly their entire life. TNUC has discovered a supreme antidote for this problem while record digging this weekend and that antidote is CHRISTMAS DISCO.

Take classic, holiday songs that you’ve heard a gazillion times. Then, strip most of the vocals and pump up those mundane rhythms that you just don’t hear after the 7,000th listen. Next, sprinkle some glitter on top, then garnish with cocaine. Now get ready to feel the heat of Christmas Disco straight from the golden age…1979!

The compilation I picked up this weekend is 1979’s Disco Noël, which features two sides of dance-floor heaters as performed by the artist Mirror Image. It’s easily the best $3.00 I’ve spent in a long time. It even came with a disco-dance instructional pamphlet inserted in the sleeve.

Take my word of advice and visit your local record shop to hunt for a Christmas Disco record. At least a dozen of them have been floating around for the last several decades. If they don’t have one in stock, Christmas came early for you because TNUC has a download link to Disco Noël here. But seriously, hearing these songs blast off a turntable is the way to go while you spin around the living room, trying not to barf up egg nog on the tree. Turn it up!

  1. My go to is the Salsoul Orchestra’s Christmas Jollies II, helmed by the venerable Patrick Adams. Stoked to give Disco Noël a spin!

  2. This is great! It’s like discovering brand new music again! It reminds of the first time I heard the disco star wars album. I love the disco version better than the original now!
