“Green Light” by Cory Daye – Disco Video Mix by Glenn Rivera
Cory Daye is known for her classic performances with Dr. Buzzard’s Original Savannah Band – “Cherchez La Femme” and “I’ll Play The Fool” from 1976 – during the creative growth of disco music. Along with producers Sandy Linzer and August Darnell (Machine) the stage was set for Cory to record her own solo album in 1979 – “ Cory and Me”.
The first big disco hit “Pow Wow” was followed appropriately by the flip side of the big 12” single, “Green Light”. It is the sound of a lighter edge of big-band along with the familiar theme of making the man come to momma.
I have taken “Green Light” and blended it with the 1984 film, “Swing Shift” with Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell – and although the theme of the film is much different from the disco hit – I used parts of the big-band era and the heroine’s dilemma to match the disco beats and drama
The film was directed by Jonathan Demme
