Italo disco...was there a scarier music scene in the 80s?


I may have posted about the hilarity of Silicon Dream's "Andromeda" earlier. Here's Wish Key's "Orient Express", one of the biggest Italo Disco hits of the 80s. I'm not quite sure what's with this video- it looks like they shot it in the guy's basement with the idea that adding a disco ball would automatically make things look cool. Catchy synth hooks though.

yeah... well, we danced in the 80s on the MUSIC not on the VIDEOS.

and we didn't care about the lyrics or accents either.

we simply wanted to move the skeleton.

and YES, we did move our skeletons.

omg... the dancing... there are no words.

and wtf is with the weird super-deep voice that comes in at the end of the chorus?

The "disco ball" was actually a really fancy light machine, though, you can see it in one of the shots.
