Froggy's Top Ten in Disco

Updated on May 16, 2015

Keeping up with my other top-ten music hubs, you now get to see my picks for the top ten disco artists.

I always had a little part of me that enjoyed disco, but don't ever tell my friends.

Scroll down and see about this craze of the 1970s and early 80's.

#1 K.C. and the Sunshine Band

How could you not want to dance when they came on the radio? K.C. had it going on when disco took off!

#2 Donna Summers

Man, this woman could sing! I had to put her at the top of the list.

The Queen of disco!

#3 The Bee Gees

The Bee Gee's were top of the charts a lot during the disco era.

#4 Patti LaBelle

This woman could put up a great fight for being the Queen of disco. Just had to dance!

#5 Village People

Now I can't really say I cared for this a whole lot, but they hit the charts bigtime. They deserve the walk on Froggy's top ten.

#6 ABBA

I know a lot of people may not think they were disco, but I think they were. I loved this Swedish band. This group had it happening.

#7 Sister Sledge

Here was a group that were always playing on jukeboxes. You had to love em.These girls can sing!

#8 Gloria Gaynor

Really well known for the song I will Survive. She was a very good artist.

#9 Peaches and Herb

This was a duo who could put the perfect romantic mood in an evening. They will be remembered forever.

#10 Rick Dees

I just had to put Rick here because of the song Disco Duck. The first time I heard it I almost wrecked my car with laughter.

Hope you enjoyed--keep watching for more top ten lists!

      Excellent hub, Froggie!

      Although you mentioned some timeless classics, there's a few that I include often in my wedding reception sets that I didn't see here, such as Earth, Wind, and Fire - September and Kool and the Gang - Celebration. Then again, the music back then was so original and unique that ten songs couldn't possibly do the era justice!

      Oh my goodness!! Now you have sent us back into the time capsule, Rick Dee's I listened to him when I was a young "Disco Duck" quack!!!quack!!!quack!! it was funny. I played Peaches and Herb over and over again, of course until the record my good old 45 ended up getting scratched. As a very young girl I LOVE K.C. i thought when I grew up I would marry him. :) Funny how times change isn't it? I love this Hub!! The music was at its prime then , I believe it was the best !! Great Hub!!!

      Wouldn't you say that's when music was music? Even dance music had a hint of music to it. Great hub Froggie.
