ALICIA BRIDGES : I Love The Nightlife (Disco Round)
American singer Alicia Bridges had a big disco hit here in Australia with ‘I Love The Nightlife (Disco Round)’ all the way back in 1979 when it made it all the way into the top five on our charts. Fast forward fifteen years and it was in the top ten once again – albeit in a remixed guise – after the track was featured in the hit movie ‘Priscilla, Queen Of The Desert’.
Of course, there was a new video to go with the reworked version, although there was a little bit of footage of the original clip incorporated, showing Alicia appearing in the moon. Hugo Weaving stars as a bored pilot who comes home and under the spell of the moon transforms almost werewolf style into a drag queen. A drag queen in a frock with propellors on the bosoms.
