An 'After-Dark' Classic

Carly Simon in Nov. 1980 Issue of After-DarkI'm going to use this 'sexy' photo shoot of Carly Simon in the 1980 November issue of After-Dark to reveal my favorite track by the Pop artist with her 1982 dance classic "Why" which was written and produced by Bernard Edwards and Nile Rodgers of Chic.

And on a side note, vintage 1970's and early 1980's issues of After-Dark have easily become my favorite magazine to read since discovering them only a few months back.

Anyways, enjoy my guilty pleasure post.

Very nice. I didn't know this, but any Rodgers/Edwards collaboration is good.

In case you're not familiar, check out her 1979 album SPY. The title track has a cool jazzy, disco vibe and the track "Vengeance" has a more rock, disco feel. Both are good to dance to. To my knowledge, neither got a 12" release, but from a timing perspective, this is probably the closest she did to a disco album.
