This Time I Know It’s For Real

Our beloved Disco Diva Donna Summer released this danceable hit on February 13, 1989.
Hmmm… the day before Valentine’s Day is quite appropriate huh?
I met my now husband some 32 years ago in 1990 not too long after it’s release.
By the time I met him at that fateful Tea-Dance, at the La-Te-Da in Key West, I had already taken a twirl or 5 to across that incredibly fabulous Copa dance floor shaking my booty to this tune’s beat.
To say that I simply loved this tune would be an understatement.
I fucking adore it.
So at this moment in time during Pride month 2022, some 32 years after meeting him and 33 years after it’s release, I post this toe tapper to dedicate it to him, my husband, my Better Half.

To you my love, I knew it was for real the first moment you looked into my eyes.

1988 Copa Key West

I danced my ass off to this one right there on one of the best dance floors in the entire world at The Copa Key West. Damn this one was fun.

This song is the question to Lynn Anderson’s answer from her hit Rose Garden.

Hell On Wheels

It’s that time of year I should be posting holiday comedy clips along with holiday music. However I just discovered that Cher just gave all of us a holiday gift and feel that I must share! It’s a re-release of her 1979 Hell On Wheels. It’s fab and the men are hot!

You should Be Dancing

San Diego Pride is always later than the other California Prides and celebrated the 2nd-3rd week of July every year. Pride week kicked off here today and will crescendo all week into next weekend. I was wondering how I would usher in our pride week and much to my delight Foo Fighters just dropped this Fabulous cover of a Bee Gees classic today.
Enjoy!

Happy San Diego Pride Ya’ll!

A Little Pride Music

I was literally brought out of the closet and into a fully gay life with this 12 inch single permanently on the turntable in the first house I shared with my first lover, and a night on a gay club’s dance floor in the early 1980s wasn’t complete with a twirl to this fabulous number.

Festival – Don’t Cry For Me Argentina – 1979

A Little Pride Music

When this little Madonna tune was released Fearsome was but a bushy porn star stache and I had just moved into my first house with my first lover. We were so young and this song fit like a glove. Oh how I loved it. In fact I still do.
