Pause-and-Playlist: 40 Years Ago – 1977’s Top Dance/Disco Hits

Disco didn’t become a common term to describe dance-club music until Gloria Gaynor’s “Never Can Say Goodbye” came along in late 1974.

By 1977, disco was firmly entrenched on Billboard’s Hot 100. Forty years ago, we had Thelma Houston, Donna Summer, the Trammps and the Village People, to name a few.

Here’s a Pause-and-Playlist salute to the No. 1 disco songs of ’77.

(You can follow along with our Spotify playlist, or click on the Spotify player at the bottom of this page.)
