“Just Can’t Help Believing” by Boys Town Gang – Disco Video Mix by Glenn Rivera
Boys Town Gang is a San Francisco based disco group founded and produced by the late Bill Motley. The first album release featured the fabulous Cynthia Manley creating her rendition of Diana Ross classics “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” and “Remember Me” as a medley which brought the dance community alive again for more years of dancing and hunger for disco music.
“Just Can’t Help Believing” is a cover of the 1970 B.J. Thomas classic ballad –done in the sweet high energy style that Motley was so wonderful to build. The album featured vocals by Jackson Moore and once again answered to the disco connoisseurs dream.
I have taken the song along with the 1977 Neil Simon comedy/romance film, “The Goodbye Girl” starring Richard Dreyfuss and Marsha Mason – a story that focuses on the romance between a struggling actor and a heartbroken dancer who can only look forward to “goodbyes” in relationships thanks to her past. It works well with the heart strings and romance and gives the disco track a new identity.
The film was directed by Herbert Ross
