Vicki Sue Robinson’s “Turn The Beat Around” is a disco classic from 1976 that’s just as catchy today as it was when it first dropped its addictive beat.
“Turn The Beat Around” may have been Vicki Sue Robinson’s only hit, but it’s a performance that immortalized her talent forever as the definitive disco sound of the seventies. She even received a Grammy nomination for Best Pop Female Vocal.
Gerald Jackson and Peter Jackson write this disco classic performed by the fabulous Vicki Sue Robinson. It’s a song that’s all about the music, with “turn the beat around” literally referring to starting the drum pattern over.
Her massive success secured Robinson, an array of headlining appearances. She featured on The Midnight Special, a full-tour of American Bandstand, Soul Train, and Don Kirshner’s Rock Concert.
