83. Kid Creole and the Coconuts, "Dario (Can You Get Me Into Studio 54)" (1979)

Penned by August Darnell, this slight pop tune yielded a disco hit for two different acts: Dana & Gene, and Darnell himself with his over-the-top show band, Kid Creole and the Coconuts. The multiculti entourage was inspired by Cab Calloway's zoot-suit finery long before the Swing revival arrived. The Coconuts ruled the roost when it came to conceptual dance music—not that it helped them get into Steve Rubell's notorious celebrity nightclub.
