Alicia Bridges (born July 13, 1953 in Lawndale, North Carolina) is an American singer who had an international hit single in 1978 with the song "I Love the Nightlife (Disco 'Round)".In 1977 she was signed with Polydor Records.
Her 1978 hit single "I Love the Nightlife (Disco Round)" reached number five on the Billboard Hot 100 charts and was also charting on Billboard's "Hits of the World" charts. The song was also #5 on the Record World and Cash Box charts consecutively.
Alicia's song was a "crossover", meaning it charted on more than one genre chart simultaneously, such as the dance tracks chart, pop charts, etc. The song was even played on country music stations.In 1978 Alicia was a Grammy nominee and was the opening act for the awards show, performing "I Love the Nightlife".
Alicia's self titled LP "Alicia Bridges" was also rising on the Billboard, Cash Box and Record World charts and the LP remained on the charts for up to 35 weeks. Both the LP and the single release were international successes for Alicia and "I Love The Nightlife" landed at the top of the charts in France and Germany with notable chart numbers in the UK, where it peaked at Number 32 on the UK singles chart, Spain and other European countries.
Alicia's music was popular in Japan as well. Alicia received a RIAA Certified Gold Record for the sale of over one million copies of her hit single in the USA, as well as a gold record from Canada.Even by 1977, Alicia was already well-versed as a rock, blues and ballad singer.
"I Love The Nightlife" has a definite back beat and organ similar to early 70s R&B. Alicia's intention was to record the track as an R&B song. But it was the shrewd ear of publishing mogul Bill Lowery who first heard the song as a disco dance tune.
Soon thereafter, Jim Burgess produced the 12" single remix. Ultimately it became a worldwide hit. The song has been featured in several movies including "Love At First Bite", "The Last Days of Disco" and "The Adventures of Priscilla, the Queen of the Desert".
Alicia's second single, "Body Heat", was a rock song with strong electric guitar rhythms, reflecting her earlier experience singing in rock and other genres. Although "I Love The Nightlife" was the most notable hit from the "Alicia Bridges" LP, "Broken Woman", a blues/rock song, also found favor among many fans.
In November 2006, Alicia Bridges released a remixed and remastered compilation of her songs entitled, "This Girl Don't Care". The CD jacket has three pink triangles as part of the design graphics as well as a pink triangle on the vest Alicia is wearing.
Being "out" to the public for many years, Alicia has been a long-time supporter of the Gay and Lesbian communities. She has said that the re-mixed and remastered CD is especially for her gay family and friends, though it reaches out with a message for others as well.
