Song: Your Disco Needs You Album: Light Years (2000, single released 2001) There has never been nor will there ever be a song as campy or as gay as “Your Disco Needs You.” Barely released as a single (as if it needed a formal release), this track from Light Years proclaims not just the dependency ...
