"Success” by The Weather Girls – Disco Video Mix by Glenn
The Weather Girls were Izora Armstead and
Martha Wash – a duo who were known as Two Tons ‘O Fun and also the
amazing backing vocals for disco singer, Sylvester. The voices which
brought a whole new message and power to dance music in the late
seventies. Their 1982 single “It’s Raining Men” was released under the
title The Weather Girls and soon the hit single leads them into a
whole new identity. Their album “Success” from 1983 was a stage for
these ladies to work with the talented Bob Esty and Paul Jabara in a
vibrant and fun-loving feel of disco-camp tracks aimed at the duo.
I have taken the disco single “Success” from the album and paired
it with the 2006 musical drama film, “Dreamgirls” starring Beyoncé
Knowles, Jennifer Hudson and Anika Noni Rose – adapted from the 1981
Broadway musical. The two spin together to display a fabulous look at
the golden stage of the ladies with the sparkle and glitter.
The film was directed by Bill Condon Featuring scenes from
