<br>Maybe I'm not old enough(?) or prolly living in a different world.. but I never heard of the genre "Italo Disco" sure I've heard of Eurodance [:D]

I think Italo was 80's version of Eurodance. To me personally the term Eurodance is more associated with 90's, when elements of House/Eurohouse and Techno were becoming more popular with artists like Rozalla, Real Mccoy, La Bouche, 2 Brothers on the 4th Floor, Magic Affair etc etc

imho 80's Euro/Italo more closely resembled NW, with a more romantic feel to the songs than the 90's Eurohouse.

also as someone already pointed out, German label ZYX seems to have coined the term Italo, that's partly why many German 80's Eurodisco artists often get bundled into Italo Disco genre.

Yes, Antonio is awesome. He's made a lot of the Italo/Euro video guys take a second look at their collection and go "wow, I thought I had rare videos".

Can Italodisco/Eurodisco also be called "Post-disco"?

It seems this was the music that largely changed the direction of Synthpop as the 80s progressed, making it overlap with the likes of Hi-NRG/House music and far less Wave-y sounding.

my current Eurodisco hit is this 1984 electro disco from David Christie called Stress, even has a cool rare video. Not sure if this was ever a hit anywhere, but I sure loved it
