Transcript of Disco Music Prezi

Disco Music Disco comes from the word "Discotheque" which was used to describe nightclubs that people went to in the 1960's and 70's. This music was made to encourage you to get out and dance. History of Disco! In the mid-70's Disco started to become more popular because of the movie "Saturday Night Fever" starring John Travolta. The film came out in 1977 with the Bee Gees recording some big dance hits such as "Staying Alive." Disco led to popular television shows such as "Soul Train" and "Dance Fever." "Dance Fever" was hosted by Deney Terrio who was known for teaching his moves to John Travolta for "Saturday Night Fever." Disco had a brief run as the top music type in 1978-1979, but soon lost its momentum as people across the nation protested the music with "Disco Sucks" bumper stickers and graffiti demonstrating the same feelings. By 1980, disco had already become less popular than black pop music. Bee Gees The Bee Gees started in 1958. The members of the Bee Gees were Barry, Robin, and Maurice Gibb.
