Disco Paradox

I don't think I'll be able to top Jen's Bee Gees post last weekend, but here's some more disco, just to keep this dance train rollin'.

Kind of like Sandi and Sally's "Walkin' in the Sunshine," this uber-campy late 70s version of "Singin in the Rain" by Sheila & B Devotion demands that the viewer embrace it's unrelenting and almost fascistic optimism and good time-ism. It puts you in an impossible position: to reject it is to be coldly cynical. To embrace it is to be a drooling simpleton. Damn you, I love you Sheila!
