Wow! That's What I Call Music! Club Time Life - We Love The Nightlife Collection

The music collection mavens over at Time-Life Music/Star Vista Entertainment have been licensing and compiling music of all genres for over six decades and today HERC presents one of their latest and greatest, 2012's We Love The Nightlife featuring 143 tracks on four double-disc albums AND the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack as well as a 32 page booklet, all housed in a one-of-a kind collector's box.  That's almost nine hours of disco dancin' music!

Surprisingly, there are a few duplicate songs within the collection due to the inclusion of the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack: "More Than A Woman" - Tavares; "A Fifth Of Beethoven" - Walter Murphy; "If I Can't Have You" - Yvonne Elliman and "Disco Inferno" - The Trammps*

*Technically, the single edit of "Disco Inferno" is included in We Love The Nightlife proper while the full-length almost eleven minute long version appears on the Saturday Night Fever album.  It's kind of a moot point as explained in the paragraph below.
Not so surprisingly, several of the songs are unavailable on Spotify at the time of this writing as single edits of original recordings. And HERC for some reason arbitrarily chose to only include single edits as they appear on We Love The Nightlife. Mostly. He did include a couple of album or extended versions but not of any of the songs listed below:

"Relight My Fire" - Dan Hartman
"There But For The Grace Of God Go I"
- Machine
"Chase" - Giorgio Moroder
"Heartbeat" - Taana Gardner
"The Love I Lost"
Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes
"This Time Baby" - Jackie Moore
"I Need Your Lovin'" - Teena Marie
"In The Navy" - Village People
"He's The Greatest Dancer"
- Sister Sledge
"Disco Inferno" - The Trammps
"Come To Me" - France Joli
"I Love Music" - The O'Jay's
"Street Player" - Chicago
"Found A Cure" - Ashford & Simpson
"Love In C Minor" - Cerrone
"In The Bush" - Musique
"Supernature" - Cerrone
"Shake Your Groove Thang"
- Peaches & Herb

So without further to-do, here's HERC's We Love The Nightlife Spotify playlist.  Time to suit up and boogie down!
