WHEN DISCO DIED
I'm watching VH1's "When Disco Ruled The World". Very entertaining. It certainly feeds my wasn't-there-really '70s nostalgia urge.

I think the key quote was provided by Charlie Anzalone, a disco DJ from back in the day:

When they did a disco version of Ethel Merman singing "There's No Business Like Show Business", I knew it was over.

In most of the civilized world, anyway. In Canada, I think it took the release of the Guy Lafleur Disco Scoring Machine record to finally kill off the genre there.
