Just in time for one final weekend of Pride Month, we get a new disco release, Mighty Real: Greatest Dance Hits from legendary disco diva, Sylvester.
The superstar artist was practically synonymous with disco thanks to his mega-hit, “You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real).” Now, 25 years after his death, his music is being celebrated through an 11-track CD and 12” double pink vinyl edition. There are a number of rare, original tracks, plus a remix of his iconic song by Grammy Award-nominated remixer and DJ, Ralphi Rosario.
It’s enough to make us want to break out our tightest clothes to boogie down on the dance floor. Or in the backyard. Even the grocery store.
Because when we hear Sylvester, we have no choice but to bust a few mean moves and make everyone around us jealous. Because we don’t just think we can dance, we know it.
At least that’s what our $200-an-hour creative movement teacher keeps telling us.
