GuitarMonk wishes “Alicia Bridges” a warm greeting and remembrance on her birthday today. She is an American singer who co-wrote and performed her international hit “I Love the Nightlife (Disco Round)” in 1978. She sang from a very young age and learned to play guitar at the age of 10. At the age of 12 she had her own radio program. The Alicia Bridges Show. Bridges’ second single, “Body Heat”, was a rock song with strong electric guitar rhythms. It was a “rock/dance” song released at a time when there was some rivalry between disco fans and rock fans; this time period began to see more songs which mixed the genres of rock and disco to create a “rock/disco” flavor.
