#20 – Bee Gees – “Stayin’ Alive” – (1977)

Well disco was alive and well in 1977, thanks to Saturday Night Fever – the most disco-y of all disco films. This soundtrack was a powerhouse, though, churning out seven #1 hits, including this one. It’s like a disco greatest hits compilation and almost like the Bee Gees greatest hits album. This is the Bee Gees signature song and it was featured at the beginning of the movie. It wasn’t even supposed to be a single, but the movie created demand for it and boom, four weeks atop the charts. Also: you just have to love the Bee Gees and the way they sing. That accent and high pitch is so unique. This is a classic and perhaps the greatest disco hit of all time.
