  • Dramatic disco for aerobics - suggestions please!

    Hello all

    I hope that you will not hold the increasing infrequency of my visits against me. I have just been stupidly busy. But I return with an interesting challenge...

    I am looking for an uptempo disco-style tune that has an obvious (but clean) narrative to create an aerobics routine for a group of primary school children. This year, we used The Bombay Royale's Wild Stallion Mountain -



    As you can see/hear, it is very dramatic and you can easily imagine a story to go with it. Heaps of fun was had by all. The task now is to better it! I would love to do Copacabana but sadly murder and alcoholism are rather taboo subjects for Kindergarten. Same goes for Chacun fait ce qui lui plait - musically perfect but dodgy content.

    Oh, and since we have a large number of Chinese and Lebanese students, anything in Mandarin or Arabic would be gold!

    I await your suggestions and thank you in advance for any hep that is forthcoming.

    Best Regards, D.

      It doesn't get much cleaner than Up With People

        Not really disco, but here's some crazy Lebanese kiddy pop from Haifa Wehbe and Nancy Ajram.

          Thanks! This is excellent! Was it released?

          * https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/...=1&*entries*=0 - mp3 sounds pretty good

            That first one's pretty trippy! Cheers for the ideas, old boy.

              Thanks! I love that first one - nice subtle groove to it.



              I stumbled on this, which is more modern and pretty cool. It features interesting 'references' to a couple of iconic 80s tunes

                Yes, from the 'Encore' LP ... http://www.discogs.com/Up-With-Peopl...elease/3230121

                I put it on my Xmas swap CD some years back

                    I happened to see the Richie Family "Arabian Nights" for $2 a short while ago. Just listened on Youtube. I might not be posting for a while. Suddenly tired, so tired.

                      This is a serious guilty pleasure of mine, Cats Eye OST, nice Japanese groovy funk, but sang in english, not particularly up tempo, mind. But I thought I would suggest it nonetheless.



                      I will have a look for more and see if there's some up tempo clean disco grooves, im sure I have more. I will try ripping some and PM you

                        Comparable to that Bombay Royale song:

                        Or the original:


                        Some Pakistani disco from the 80s, albeit I wouldn't call it dramatic (maybe you could speed it up?):


                        Indian disco ragas, none of his songs have vocals though:


                        Charanjit Singh also played on this Asha Bhosle Bollywood classic, don't know if it sounds disco enough:


                        One of my favorite disco songs:


                        Or what about this one?:


                        Classic:


                        This Hush disco cover is absolutely nutters:
