95 More Songs of Summer - Everybody Disco!

As summer wound down in 1976, the disco phenomenon was beginning to pick up steam.  Some of the songs were great, and some were ridiculous.  But on that Labor Day weekend, the genre dominated the top of the charts, as it would for the next few years.

"Shake Shake Shake (Your Booty)," KC and the Sunshine Band

"Play That Funky Music," Wild Cherry

"You Should Be Dancing," Bee Gees

"Heaven Must Be Missing An Angel," Tavares

"Lowdown," Boz Scaggs.  I suppose you could argue that this one wasn't really disco, but it was certainly disco-influenced. Whatever you call it, "Silk Degrees" was a great album.
