Andrea True - "More, More, More"

Spinner reports that Andrea True, the singer behind the immortal 1976 disco hit “More, More, More” died earlier this month in Kingston, New York of undisclosed causes. She was 68.

True had one of the weirder and more interesting life stories of any hitmaking singer. Born in Nashville, True had attempted to launch a career as a legitimate actress before becoming a full-time porn star — a career she returned to after her music career ended. She recorded “More, More, More” while stranded in Jamaica, where she’d filmed a commercial. After that one hit, she recorded a few other singles and finally released her last album in 1980. Before her death, she was working as a drug counselor and astrologer.

Below, watch the “More, More, More” video.

Oh, and I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention that Len sampled “More, More, More” for their great 1999 bubble-pop single “Steal My Sunshine.”

  1. Also, the great jazz drummer/composer/band leader Paul Motian died today http://www.nytimes.com/2011/11/23/arts/music/paul-motian-jazz-drummer-is-dead-at-80.html?_r=1&ref=music Not to be too negative or anything, but I find it a little weird that the indie blogs are covering the death of a one-hit wonder/porn star but not one of the greatest American musicians of all time (yes, for real). I didn’t know y’all were THAT out-of-touch with the jazz world.

  2. Also, I should mention that I do like “More, More, More,”. A cover band I used to play drums in actually played it. RIP.

  3. I was sincerely concerned that LEN would not be included. Thank you for giving me that relief Tom, in remembrance of Brendan Canning best group (BSS a close second, clearly)
