Alicia Bridges

It’s hard to believe it was 34 years ago this Spring that (out lesbian) Alicia Bridges was a resounding hit in the discos. Her smash “I Love the Nightlife (Disco Round)” reached #5 on the Billboard charts, and was an international hit, selling one million copies and garnering her a Grammy nomination. And I knew every word, and especially (on the dance) floor gave the proper body accents to “You can love them all and when you're through, maybe that'll make, Ugh! a man out of you.”

and the song made it to at least two movie soundtracks

  1. Wow, I definitely remember the song, and while I had my suspicions, didn't know for sure Alicia was LGBT. More great stuff, thanks!
