A song that hit number 33 in the charts in both the United States and the United Kingdom is one of our Capitol.fm power plays and soon to be a Phoenix hit. It’s Chanson and their one hit wonder ‘Don’t Hold Back’ and there’s an interesting disco video also.
A new Phoenix track is coming to Capitol.fm. Check out the video in the article on on our Facebook page. It’s a one hit wonder from a studio disco band called Chanson which made to 33rd spot on the U.S. BillBoard Hot 100 in 1979 and even traveled across the Atlantic to the United Kingdom where it also hit no 33 in the UK Top 40.

1970s when attitudes at the Disco were quite different to today
The video shows how things have changed since the 1970s. This would never do in the #Me Too world of today. A likely lad approaches a woman in nightclub by slapping her on the bum! If you can forgive that and the dance moves that are more enthusiastic at choreographed then you have one of those songs from the 1970s that oozes positivity and is just fun. It’s disco time on the World radio station.
