SohoJohnny’s Brushes With Greatness: France Joli

Soho And France Joli

You can’t (or at least I can’t) keep up with rocknyc’s SohoJohnny, a sociable and amiable man when you hang with him you are suddenly the center of attention. I’ve met everyone from Ozzy Osbourne to Paul Anka with him, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

France Joli was the teenage disco singer whose debut album, when she was all of fifteen, was executive produced by Giorgio Moroder. The singer, who famously told the “disco sucks” crowd to go fuck themselves, is a beautiful and exemplary representative for disco, with some big hits to her credit, including “Come To Me” and “Gonna Ger Over You” – essential crossover pop just after disco’s height.
