Pick Me Up, I'll Dance

Summertime is definitely a time for feel good disco songs. One song that I can't seem to get out of my head is the 1978 disco classic "Pick Me Up, I'll Dance" by Melba Moore. This single released by Epic, definately makes me want to sing along as much as it makes me want to dance. The original version was released later that year on the full length LP entitled, Melba, which is also worth getting your hands on.

This is a short edited version of the song that appeared on the amazing live mix compilation Larry Levan Live At The Paradise Garage. This mix was actually recorded live in 1979 at the legendary Paradise Garage. Alot of great disco gems on that live LP, also worth picking up.

I believe it's actually Gwen Guthrie's "Getting Hot."

M.E. Grant - You're right, I put up the wrong song. Thanks for catching the error. The right one is up there now.

"Larry Levan Live At The Paradise Garage" - I was just listening to this song on the album, which is how I found your blog. It's a great fun album that sounds like a modern-day retro disco set rather than something recorded when I was three years old.
