As you well know so many disco songs are re-makes.  Some of them brought joy to me others just incited the UGH! quotient.  Some of the worst ones were done in the 80's in the Hi NRG style. 

Some I really enjoy include:
Black is Black by Cerrone
Tubular Bells and Land of Make Believe by Champ's Boys Orchestra
Shake Me, Wake Me by Barbra Streisand
Music, Music, Music by California
Nights on Broadway by Candi Staton
il Veliero by Chaplin Band
Good Times by Charanga 76, Mi Amor Proibido by Charanga 76 and No Nos Parraran by Charanga '76
Georgy Porgy by Charme
Weekend by Class Action
Nowhere to Run by Dynamic Superiors
I Can't Stand the Rain by Eruption
Standing in the Shadows of Love by Fever
Ain't No Mountain High Enough by Inner Life
Never Can Say Goodbye by Gloria Gaynor
Africa by Key of Dreams
Kiss you all Over by Phyllis Hyman
Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman by New Markets

A few I don't particularly care for include:
Love Story by Andy Williams
SoulMan by Calhoon
Suspicious Minds by Candi Staton
Dancing Queen by Carol Douglas
Music Trance by Charanga '76
I was Made for Dancin' by Cicciolina
Smoke gets in Your Eyes by Judy Cheeks
Song from M.A.S.H. by New Markets
Jimmy Mack by Karen Carpenter
Disco Duck Symphony by Paul Vincent
That Old Black Magic by Softones (a big Jimmy M favorite)

There are so many others!  I just wanted to get a few out there as food for thought.
