From the (twilight) years of the Disco era, a movie soundtrack that surpasses its celluloid counterpart. Thank God It's Friday wasn't the milestone Disco flick in the iconic trad of Saturday Night Fever, where every Tom, Dick and Juan Dela Cruz owned a copy of the double album (wherein Dyna Records systematically made a literal killing), but the songs live on way beyond musical expectations. Songs like Donna Summer's "Last Dance," the funk-in-yo-face of "Brickhouse" by The Commodores and the ubiquitously memorable "Trapped In A Stairway" from one Paul Jabara. Definitely brings back those streetsweeping gabardine slacks and platform shoes days of the late 70's, especially on a Friday!
