FLASHBACK – Disco Duck vs. Disgorilla

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zc5d01_riBo[/youtube] Sure, some of us older folk may remember L.A. radio personality Rick Dees from his creepy Disco Duck days. But raise your hand if you remember Disgorilla, the Disco Duck sequel.

Yeah, me neither.

The 70s were full of questionable taste, so it’s not entirely surprising that Disco Duck hit number one in the pop charts of 1976. The song sold six million copies – [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZTOqeBEtyLY[/youtube] one of which was bought for me by my sister. But believe it or not, it also rose to number 15 on the Black Singles chart. (Really? Huh.)

As for Disgorilla? Yeah, Rick didn’t have quite as much success with that one. But it’s okay. Even though Ryan Seacrest usurped his 30 year career in an Eve-like swoop, the 59 year-old Dees seems to be keeping busy as co-founder of Fine Living and founder of Rick.com.

Hey, just as long as he’s not planning on spending his retirement writing more disco songs, we’re good.
