Disco Friday

There can't be many more uplifting records than 1979 disco classic "Ain't No Stoppin' Us Now". Although McFadden and Whitehead wrote and produced songs for the likes of Gladys Knight, The Jackson 5 and James Brown, they will always be remembered for the their only major hit with that unforgettable bassline and the joyful positivity that just bursts forth from every groove...

There've been so many things that have held us down
But now it looks like things are finally comin' around, yeah
I know we've got a long long way to go, yeah
And where we'll end up
I don't know
But we won't let nothing hold us back

I was watching the video for this on YouTube the other day and 13 people had clicked on the dislike button...hard to believe that anyone could dislike this but there you go...

Ain't No Stoppin' Us Now


  1. .....and There Ain't No Stopping You with all these classic disco songs, is there??

  2. Love this record- reminds me of exactly where I was and what I was doing at that time.
    thanks very much !

  3. Not sure how many more disco classics there are to go George, don't think this will be a series that will run and run...just noticed that Adam is on number 152 for Rockabilly Friday, don't think Disco Friday will reach those dizzy heights

  4. There's a challeneg for you Scott. 152 classic disco hits. How many has it been so far? 4?5?

  5. Round about that George, it will be nothing short of a miracle if I can find 152 decent disco songs to post..
