Best Disco of 1981 Vol 3 Song for Coca-Cola.
This is a stunner! Where to start? Well there’s the cover, yeah. Whoa. The first song, called “Song for Coca-Cola”, is in fact a Coke ad jingle, repeated twice in a row for good measure. There follows a surprisingly strong collection of good and great songs, almost none of which are disco or from 1981. There’s schlager (Lolita's "See Man", which is amazing and not sexual at all - she’s German and See Man is a misspelling of “Seemann” which means sailor - but you can bet I didn’t want to google it!), lite country-pop (Jerry Wallace’s amazingly titled - and amazing - "Mandom, Lovers of the World", about which even more amazingly youtube tells me “The song is from a japanese After Shave commercial with Charles Bronson. The single released only in Japan”), soft rock / easy listening (Harpo’s "Jessica" which actually has a harp, Deborah Raffin’s "Sail the Summer Wind" which is nothing short of PURE FUCKING MAGIC, Galaxy’s "Book of Rules" which is pretty deep), and more. Brain blown, thanks.
