Alicia Bridges is een Amerikaanse zangeres, geboren op 15 juli 1953 in de staat North Carolina. Ze is vooral bekend van haar internationale hit I Love The Nightlife (Disco Round) uit 1978, die in 1979 -geholpen door de status van Alarmschijf- in Nederland de top 10 van de Top 40 haalde.

Bridges zingt en speelt gitaar vanaf zeer jonge leeftijd. Op haar 12e had ze al een radioprogramma op een lokale zender, waarin ze af en toe zong. In 1977, op haar 24e, tekent ze bij Polydor en daarna gaat het hard.

Bridges schreef zelf mee aan I Love The Nightlife (Disco Round). Het staat op haar debuutalbum Alicia Bridges. Het nummer is een aantal keren in films gebruikt, waaronder Love At First Bite (1979), The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert (1994) en The Last Days of Disco (1998).

Songtekst

Please don't talk about love tonight.
Please don't talk about sweet love.
Please don't talk about being true
and all the trouble we've been through.
Ah, please don't talk about all of the plans
we had for fixin' this broken romance.
I want to go where the people dance.
I want some action ... I want to live!

Action ... I got so much to give.
I want to give it. I want to get some too.

Oh, I ... Ohhh I ... I love the nightlife,
I got to boogie on the disco 'round, oh yea.
Oh, I love the night life,
I got to boogie on the disco 'round, oh yea.

Please don't talk about love tonight.
Your sweet talking won't make it right.
Love and lies just bring me down
when you've got women all over town.
You can love them all and when you're through,
maybe that'll make, huh, a man out of you.
I got to go where the people dance.
I want some action ... I want to live!

Action ... I got so much to give.
I want to give it. I want to get some too.

Oh, I ... Ohhh I ... I love the nightlife,
I got to boogie on the disco 'round, oh yea.
Oh, I love the night life,
I got to boogie on the disco 'round, oh yea.

Oh, I love the night life,
I got to boogie on the disco 'round, oh yea.
Oh, I love the night life,
I got to boogie on the disco 'round, oh yea.
I love the night life,
I got to boogie on the disco 'round, oh yea.
