I discovered (or "discocovered") this song after reading a comment in the April Fool's thread about Spotify changing its "discover weekly" feature into "discocover weekly". The commenter mentioned "a disco cover of 'Rhapsody In Blue'", which checks two of my boxes:
'Rhapsody in Blue' is in my all-time Top Three instrumental/orchestral pieces of music.
Disco (real disco, from back in the '70s) is one of my favourite genres.
Mashing these two things together just has to be good. And, sure enough, it is! This track is, in equal parts, inspired and cheesy. I can't listen to it without finding myself bopping along. It makes me happy.
I bought the track within 15 minutes of reading that comment, have added it to my "Orchestral" and my "Disco" playlists, and am making excuses to listen to it as often as I can.
Actually, there were a few disco versions of classical songs made in the 1970s. It seems to have been a minor fad back then - and I realised, when buying this track, that I also have Murphy's track 'A Fifth of Beethoven', plus 'Night on Disco Mountain' by David Shire. I really enjoy this combination of funky disco and classical music.
And I love this song! :)
