Les Dimanches Disco - Runaway Love

Hello friends!

Yes, I know I've been neglecting this blog BIG TIME with no real excuse whatsoever...

Well, I have to admit I've been focusing more on my musical projects and keeping my vintage side to the bare survival minimum but now I'm trying to bring the two back together.

Donc... Les Dimanches Disco!

Sundays are usually after hours day - when DJs fly back to their home, get some rest or just try to sober up after a weekend of partying and listen to sleaze - the more soulful, downtempo morning music. 

It may just be a video shared on twitter, or a nice glamor shot or just any lazy glitzy randomness. Or full fleshed posts.

 This week,after reading this amazing article about the mind-blowing NYC 80s gay club with a fucking planetarium-grade star machine,The Saint, I got completely hooked on this charming video of Linda Clifford's Runaway Love.

Here's what she says about the magic going on at The Saint :

“When I walked in, I thought, ‘Wow, this place is freakin’ huge,’” Clifford recalls, “and immediately ran to a dressing area, so I didn’t get to see the crowd until I hit the stage. Holy shit! It was one of those things that takes your breath away and then you’re like, ‘Snap out of it – you’ve got a job to do.’ I sang ‘Runaway Love’ and incorporated some of the guys in the audience into my whole shtick, and they went insane. Just insane. And I thought to myself, ‘I’m in heaven.’ On the ceiling, it looked like stars. Maybe that’s why I relate this whole thing to being in heaven.
“Then I thanked them for making my dreams come true because that’s what they did. I sang ‘If My Friends Could See Me Now’ and – I’m not kidding you – for 20 minutes after that, they screamed and ranted. It was like ‘You can play another song, but we’re not dancing to it.’ I was like, ‘Oh my God, I gotta go back.’ And the management was like, ‘No, you’re contracted for two songs – that’s it.’ Now, I had performed at Studio 54 and that’s pretty big and decadent, but it was not on the same level. The Saint audience was without a doubt the craziest and most fun group I’ve ever played for. They just went nuts, and made me go nuts.”

Check out the video below. And I mean...her hair!!

Have a super chill Sunday!
