Gloria Gaynor – I Will Survive
This remains one of the most beloved disco tracks of all time and has been the soundtrack to many a relationship break-up over the decades! There have been many imitations, but no-one has ever come close to Gloria’s original rendition.
Donna Summer – I Feel Love
During the hot summer of 1977, this tune flew to the number one spot in the UK charts and stayed there for a sizzling 4 weeks! We were all feeling a lot of love that summer. Dance floors would fill instantly and still do when this classic track comes on. This has got to be one of Donna Summers’ greatest hits.
Candi Staton – Young Hearts Run Free
A year before Donna Summers hit the top spot, Candi Staton reached the top 10 of the UK charts with her classic ‘Young Hearts Run Free’. She only had one other song reach the top 10 in the UK. Young Hearts reached number two and remains a solid disco favourite to this day.
