Big fan of Nile Rodgers & Bernard Edwards. Which of these is your favourite? By Chic related I mean it either is Chic or they wrote and performed on songs released by other artists (Diana Ross/Sister Sledge/Sheila & Black Devotion).

Superb poll, Nick. I will listen to all these tracks and get back to you. At first glance, I'm Coming Out stands out to me.

the intro, the trombone solo and the instrumental break down on that one are first rate! It's between that one and Everybody Dance for me (Bernard Edwards' bass line is gold). With He's The Greatest Dancer close behind. That guitar line!
I should add that I think the extended, album versions of all the singles are better.

I wholeheartedly agree. It's a rule of life that extended versions of songs are always superior. This is especially relevant for dance/disco tracks.

yeah, it's a standard for most dance acts coming out of the 70's/80's - the edits were made to comply with airplay/chart play, the extended cuts almost always being far superior.

It's between "Good Times" and "Spacer" for me. Great poll, Nick. Chic need more love on DDD.

Good Times makes me happy. Very happy. And makes me dance.
