There were many girls that I'd hope would be around at the parties - they include Nur, Jah, Nora, Anis, Ruth, Su, Umi, Atun, Linda, Elita, Emma, Oda dan one particular girl that me and my friends referred to as BAF (because her parents car number begins with BAF) - it was a mini I think and she stays in Kampung Tunku. Of course I know her name - its Jaz. I wonder where she is now.
Me and my posse - Nabir, Amer, Amir, Fauzy, Iqbal, Nasir, Thamiz - would attend these parties whenever we'd get invited (not often). Usually driving in either Amer's old volkswagen or my Dad's Opel. Wearing bell bottoms, two inch wide belts, platform shoes, sideburns, Travolta collars, Amco and Texwood jeans - trying to look cool. Either that or end up looking like Jinjang Joes of the 70s. (Baycity Roller kakis Yechhhhh!)
What was memorable about those days was the music. Yes. The music of the 70s. It's Disco!!!
Below are some of the most and the best during those years. Enjoy!
WAR - Cisco Kid (Don't you guys feel silly doing the funky chicken?)
THE STYLISTICS - Medley (Ahhhh no house party is complete without these guys!!)
OHIO PLAYERS - Fire (Where are the bands with horn sections these days ah?)
VAN MCCOY - Do The Hustle (I just can't do the hustle!!!)
COMMODORES - Still (A lot of young couples' 'our song' lah this one)
EARTH,WIND & FIRE - Fantasy (What can I say??? EWF!!!!)
By the way, we weren't just into Disco in the late 70's you know. We love great rock and roll - and these four numbers are amongst my favourites.
DEEP PURPLE - Smoke on the Water (Hands up those guys who tried to play the opening riff of this great number on their Kapok guitar?)
Bad Company - Ready For Love (I love this song)
LED ZEPPELIN - Black Dog (Head banging at its best! And without Ecstasy)
BLACK SABBATH - Paranoid (We enjoyed metal too guys!)
Hope these music and videos brought you back down memory lane.
