Jr. High Mix, Vol. 2

McAllister School - May 23, 2011

About three weeks ago, I shared a mix disc of songs that reminded me of my days in junior high school.  Click here for that post.  Several astute readers correctly pointed out that my playlist's length (17 songs, 68 minutes) was restricted by the playing length of the CD.  Looking back, I should have made a 2-disc set.  Here's another 17 tracks that would make up the playlist for the hypothetical second disc:

Last DanceDonna Summer1978
HimRupert Holmes1980
SeptemberEarth, Wind & Fire1978
The Seduction (Love Theme)James Last Band1980
The BreaksKurtis Blow1980
Arrow Through MeWings1979
Rapper's DelightSugarhill Gang1979
Special LadyRay, Goodman, & Brown1979
My LifeBilly Joel1978
Cruisin'Smokey Robinson1979
Do RightPaul Davis1980
Heart of GlassBlondie1979
Rise Herb Alpert1979
Outside My WindowStevie Wonder1980
FunkytownLipps Inc.1980
I Can't Tell You WhyEagles1980

Most of these songs would have been heard on Houston Top 40 radio.  My station of choice around that time was AM 610 KILT. 

The only song I don't remember from the radio was The Breaks by Kurtis Blow, but a friend had the 12" single and brought it to every party we attended where it got played at least twice per night.  What did the Soft Rock Kid look like during those parties?  Disco-licious, of course!
