I thought it'd be interesting to see a progressive rock take on Italo Disco, because it's so different from Prog yet it shares the quality of being seen as too over the top by some people. I personally love it because I am very into "over the top" music such as prog, italo disco, power metal, synthwave, ect. I think while some italo can be very cheesey to its own detriment some of it is very enjoyable. Here, I'll post some samples of my favorite italo disco if you aren't already aware of it-









It's VERY 80s.
Love it? Hate it? Let me know.

I love any kind of Disco music including Italo Disco. Thumbs Up
 
I had a Disco thread too called Boogie Wonderland, although it's beginning to fade into oblivion now. Smile

I love me some Italo-disco. There's a 90s band called Datura that is da bomb

Anthrax, Smallpox, Tuberculosis, Karaoke and Italo Disco - what common attribute do they share? -
All five are airborne diseases.
