I highly recommend a youtube video to help you understand the happy nature of the disco music:
SYTYCD Canada Season 1 - Disco - Natalli Reznik & Nico Archambault.
SYTYCD stands for So You Think You Can Dance, a dance competition TV show, and this is the Canadian edition.
They dance to the disco song "Knock on Wood" (Amii Stewart).
And don't forget about John Travolta movies. - Metal_Treasure

This really is so cheerful. I'd love to sit in front of a campfire at night and listen to a live Zydeco band with great friends. Unfortunately, I don't know anyone else in my orbit who appreciates it as much as I do. It's an extremely underrated genre. Please, please listen and tell me that a smile doesn't appear on your face while listening to it. - Britgirl
