Stranger freelancer Michaelangelo Matos has written an essay on Chic’s 1979 classic “Good Times” titled We Won't Settle for Less: Chic at the End of Disco. The piece is part of Rhino’s Single Notes series about individual songs, designed for Kindle and iBooks.

You can hear Matos expound about the crucial orchestral-disco song, which became a slick building block in several hiphop tracks and the inspiration for Queen’s 1980 hit “Another One Bites the Dust,” in the video after cut.
