Aside from the brief rap. Kylie Minogue "Step Back in Time" is a throwback to the disco '70's.

 It appears that disco, at least in the early '90's, wasn't as frowned upon in the UK where the US wouldn't wax nostalgia on it until the late 1990's.

There was even a disco tribute in the video for "Never Too Late" (1989), which featured Kylie in various eras in the 20th century.

Though the fad faded around 1980/1981, Michael Jackson's "Wanna Be Startin' Somethin" (1983) sounds like something that wouldn't be out of place in his "Off The Wall" album.

Whitney Houston "I Wanna Dance With Somebody" (1987)

One of my favorite songs and like a lot of the outfits in the video, which is like a time capsule of that era.  8)

It's now listed on the US Amazon site  for 143.99 dollars

I remember when my family got cable.  It was during the summer of 1984 and I think we had something like 40 or 41 channels.  Something like that.  It was about $10 a month and we were one of the last houses to get wired for it.  All of my friends except for maybe one had cable for at least a couple if not even three years before we got it.  That seemed to be the way it was, we were always behind everyone else when we got something.  Some of that had to do with money, my parents didn't want to get sucked into some fad that would disappear overnight or end up costing you a small fortune for little return.  Other reasons I'm not too sure of but we eventually got cable too.  We had one of those cable boxes that had that sliding channel selector and a really long white cable that screwed into the back of the box so you could pull it over to your chair instead of having to get up and walk over to the box everytime you wanted to change channels.  At that time 40, 41 channels seemed like a huge number.  Now I think I get something like 300 but the lion's share of them I never watch.  The number of channels has increased but I'm not sure that the quality of content has.  If anything I think it's gone the other way.
