Pretty Baby” by Sister Sledge – Disco Video Mix by Glenn Rivera
Sister Sledge are four sisters who delivered two of the iconic disco songs of 1979 – “We Are Family” and “He’s The Greatest Dancer”. It was also an accomplishment for producers/musicians Bernard Edwards and Nile Rodgers who also formed the disco group Chic a year earlier. The album “We Are Family” created a new makeover for the girls since they began recording in 1975. The follow-up project in 1980 was another Edwards and Rodgers gem. “Pretty Baby” is a single from the album which features the funky bass and lead guitars formulating the groove for the ladies to tell their story.
I have taken the 1978 drama, “Pretty Baby” starring Brooke Shields, Susan Sarandon and Keith Carradine – in the Louis Malle historical fiction story of a 12 year-old prostitute in the red-light district at the turn of the century. The titles are shared here and yet the mood of the disco piece fits the stony film images.
The film was directed by Louis Malle
