When I listen to the Commodores, it just doesn't stick with me like EWF does. The Commodores do have that funky sound, but EWF is the funky sound. You just can't beat that.

My vote this round goes to Earth, Wind & Fire. The decision for me was elementary.

I could dance to EWF all night, assuming that I had a plan to disco dance or roller boogie all night. Shining Star captures the groove of the era better than almost any other song out there. When I listen to it, I feel like it's 1975 again, and I wasn't even born yet in 1975.

Seems like Earth, Wind & Fire are killing The Commodores in this battle... clean sweep! (O.o)

@ fries : Really... that's as thin as a reasoning can get... so thin I have to exclude it from the count. Please put some effort when voting for the battles and write a little about your choice from now on, ok? Thanx! ;)

@ BravoTangoRomeo1993 : Now that's an original reasoning! You get a +1 for that! =)

So, it's time for another (final) score count and -at the same time- a notification that a new battle will soon be posted... ;)

On with the next battle it is then! And since the Disco era was well visited, we decided to extend this with one more battle from the same era! Meet "Disco Fever - Part II"! Here's two more big guns from the era where it was all about the moves on the groove! Get that afro on and those shoes swirling!! =)

Songs like "Get Down Tonight" and "Shake Your Booty" are why I prefer KC to the BGs. Their music is simply more interesting. The melodies of their songs have more dance adrenaline than most Bee Gees songs.

Staying Alive and You Should Be Dancing rocks (I mean discoed)!
Also don't forget More Than a Woman.
Bee Gees FTW!

I've gotta go with Bee Gees. They're usually the first thing mentioned when the topic of disco comes up. Vocal talent like that is unmatched, other than perhaps by Brad Delp in More Than a Feeling (gives me chills). I'd rather get on the floor to Bee Gees than KC. I'd rather listen to You Should Be Dancing and Staying Alive than anything on the KC list.
