ManDanceTM:  1977 - 1982

 

I was 16 when New Years eve 1979 turned to 1980 and I walked through the steamy glass doors of my first gay dance bar.  Great music drove hundreds of men to dance and take their shirts off as they worked up a sweat.  I started collecting those songs.  Here are 22 favorites from 1977-1982 that collectively capture that unbridled, ecstatic, exuberant energy.

 

May you dance.
