Rolling Stone Readers Pick the Best Disco Songs of All Time

Classic Salsoul recordings like Loleatta Holloway's "Love Sensation," Inner Life's "Ain't No Mountain High Enough," and First Choice's "Love Thang" are the backbone of the project. But its modern electro, house and nu disco producers like White Noize, J Paul Getto, Federico Scavo and the Cube Guys who bring that label's vintage 12-inch sides into the present.

The result is an album of club music that should thrive alongside tracks by modern dance giants like Daft Punk and Cut Copy. Dance Your Ass Off (Salsoul Remixes) is due out on September 3rd.

“Road to Nowhere”

Talking Heads | 1985

A cappella harmonies give way to an a fuller arrangement blending pop and electro-disco on "Road to Nowhere," but the theme remains constant: We're on an eternal journey to an undefined destination. The song vaulted back into the news a quarter century after it was a hit when Gov. Charlie Crist used it in his unsuccessful 2010 campaign for the U.S. Senate in Florida. "It's this little ditty about how there's no order and no plan and no scheme to life and death and it doesn't mean anything, but it's all right," Byrne said with a chuckle.
