FCS Music Video – ‘I Love the Nightlife’ Alicia Bridges (1978)

Born in Charlotte, North Carolina and raised in the small Cleveland County town of Lawndale, Alicia Bridges sang from a very young age, learning to play guitar at the age of 10. At the age of 12 she had her own radio program: The Alicia Bridges Show, broadcast every Saturday on station WADA in Shelby, North Carolina. Occasionally she would sing on the show but has said what she is most proud of is that she “ran all the dials, the turntables, cued the records and made all the announcements live on the air”. From age thirteen Bridges fronted bands who performed in local clubs- “They were pretty rough places…but these were the only places I could get…performing experience… so I had to adjust to that rough environment and learn to survive in it”

Lyrics at end

Oh, I love the nightlife
I’ve got to boogie
On the disco ’round, oh yeah

Oh, I love the nightlife
I’ve got to boogie
On the disco ’round, oh yeah

Please don’t talk about love tonight
Please don’t talk about sweet love
Please don’t talk about begin true
And all the trouble we’ve been through

Ah, please don’t talk about all of the plans we had
For fixin’ this broken romance
I want to go where the people dance
I want some action, I want to live!

Action, I got so much to give
I want to give it
I want to get some too

Ohoho, I
Oh, I love the nightlife
I’ve got to boogie
On the disco ’round, oh yeah

Oh, I love the nightlife
I’ve got to boogie
On the disco ’round, oh yeah

Please don’t talk about love tonight
Your sweet talking won’t make it right
Love and lies just bring me down
When you’ve got women all over town

You can love them all and when you’re through
Maybe that’ll make, huh, a man out of you
I got to go where the people dance
I want some action, I want to live!

Action, I got so much to give
I want to give it
I want to get some too

Ohoho, I
Oh, I love the nightlife
I’ve got to boogie
On the disco ’round, oh yeah

Oh, I love the nightlife
I’ve got to boogie
On the disco ’round, oh yeah

Oh, I love the nightlife
I’ve got to boogie
On the disco ’round, oh yeah

Oh, I love the nightlife
I’ve got to boogie
On the disco ’round, oh yeah

Oh, I love the nightlife
I’ve got to boogie
On the disco ’round, oh yeah

Oh, I love the nightlife
I’ve got to boogie
On the disco ’round, oh yeah

I love the nightlife
I’ve got to boogie
On the disco ’round, oh yeah
