Who sang these super successful '70s disco songs?

We've got a little disco fever, let's see if you can cool us down.

 

Here's a quiz to get those feet moving and those brains grooving! By 1978, disco music was outselling rock music, and seemed to be on almost everyone's radio.

15/15. What's funny is that I have Music On Demand '70s playing, and "Dance, Dance, Dance" is playing even as I type! (No, I didn't look at the screen to cheat; I sincerely knew every single song.)

15/15. The only one that almost threw me is the Boney M hit. I never heard any Boney M on the radio or in the clubs, they were bigger in Europe.

Got all fifteen. Never have thought of Love Train as a disco song, though.

It was what they call today "proto-disco", meaning it inspired disco while not exactly being disco. It was danceable, though.

5/12 guest at all of them disco died for a reason
musicman37 Vamp13 12 months ago
Disco died because it was a threat to rock and roll artists. Also, it wasn't allowed to evolve as music, people were throwing out crappy records like "Disco Duck", "Mickey Mouse Disco" and "The Ethel Merman Disco Album" which were not only jokes, but extremely harmful to the form. The best Disco music transcended the genre, and became huge pop hits. The Bee Gees, Donna Summer, and KC and the Sunshine Band (along with Gloria Gaynor and Chic) made some of the best disco music there was. Also, there was racism and sexism involved, since Disco music was primarily made by women, blacks, Puerto Ricans and Gays. As well, it was largely a producer-driven form, rather than be made by the artists, for the most part.

13/15! and a few words on the Chic songs: the first one was subtitled "Yowza Yowza Yowza" and I believe the only other person who said THAT after 1955 was Don Adams as Inspector Gadget! The second one was going to be called "[BLANK] Off", but AM radio wouldn't allow that...LOL!

Richie Cunningham said it at a dance contest on an episode of "Happy Days".

It was said by the Gig Young character (the dance announcer) in the movie about a 1930's dance marathon, "They Shoot Horses, Don't They?" (1969)
