Fun Facts

DJs in New York City in the 1960s began overlaying prerecorded music with live music as well as mixing two or three records together at once. This sound became so popular that recording artists began composing these extended grooves and dance beats in the studios.

Disco music became popular to play in most nightclubs by the early 1970s. As Best Disco Songs became more popular and the dominant dance style of music, the disco-style clubs were called discotheques. Donna Summer quickly rose to be the most popular and well-known disco artist. Donna Summer eventually claimed the title “The Queen of Disco”.

Popular disco-themed movies helped spark the popularity of disco music with Saturday Night Fever and Thank God It’s Friday. These movies made superstars out of the Bee Gees and subsequently K.C. & The Sunshine Band.
