The Energy of Disco


It’s been a while since I’ve posted. But don’t worry; I have just been procrastinating. I’d like today to share with you my own personal top-10 chart of disco songs. For those who may not know, disco was a very, very large phenomenon in the 70s. It was a sort of mix between funk, pop, and soul. It’s dancing music. It went out of popularity in the late 70s, but came back later, and in 2013, several pop stars, including Justin Timberlake and Bruno Mars, released disco-style pop songs.

10. YMCA, The Village People

9. We Are Family, Sister Sledge

8. I Feel Love, Donna Summer

7. Funky Town, Lipps

6. Le Freak, Chic

5. Night Fever, Bee Gees

4. Stayin’ Alive, Bee Gees

These last three are extremely hard to decide, so writing this, I’ve changed my mind many times, and I still don’t feel like it’s right, but here it is.

3. Don’t Leave Me This Way, Thelma Houston

2. I Will Survive, Gloria Gaynor

1. Lady Marmalade, Labelle

Patti Labelle at the White House
