Today's 12 Inches is of the 70's & It's Disco!

Drum roll please, it's time for 12 inches of the 70's.

Now I put a call out on Facebook yesterday because I was stuck, I had no idea what song to play with the 12 inches of.

I have to say, I had the most amazing response, some of the songs requested were Loverboy, AC/DC, Phil Collins, Men Without Hats, INXS, New Order, Kiss, the list goes on!

But there can only be one winner, and after I put all the songs into the Wheel Decide (a website that helps me to pick winners), I can proudly say that Patrick Hernandez "Born To Be Alive" won.

Here's some trivia about the song:

  • It was written by Patrick Hernandez
  • I didn't know Patrick is French
  • It was released in 1979
  • It's off the album called Born To Be Alive
  • It became a worldwide hit and reached number one on the US Disco charts
  • It was first conceived as a hard rock song
