This disco song is all about Rockford and you have to hear it.

Internet Isn't All Bad

I know a lot of people think the internet is a bad thing. Well, if you avoid the junk, you can really find some fun stuff.

I will admit, it does take time to actually find some enjoyable content but once I do it is like finding gold.

Today, was one of those days. I just started cruising the net and after a long search, I finally discovered a winner. It is such an amazing find, that I had to share it with you immediately.

Promoting Rockford

I understand that cities in Illinois like Rockford have to get out there and promote themselves. They need to attract visitors to earn some tourism dollars.

Of course, through the years there have been many different methods used to get the word out about Rockford. The city had used television commercials, radio announcements, billboards, print ads, brochures, and more.

What I found today could be the best Rockford promotional piece ever. It is an actual song written to promote Rockford within the lyrics. The genre is disco. Check it out for yourself.

After watching it, I had a big smile on my face. I could not help it. That is not what I expected. The combination of disco and Rockford is a big winner.

I would have like an official music video to go along with it.


Of course, I have many unanswered questions.

  • Who wrote and performed the song because it was professionally done?
  • Was Cheap Trick not available?
  • Where was it used?
  • Are there any more?
  • Can we start using it again?
  • Have you ever heard it before?

That definitely made my day.
