I was watching a show on The Biography Channel about John Travolta in Saturday Night Fever, after which they showed a special on the Bee Gees and their music.

Quite a phenomena that happened in the late 70’s with the Disco era…all started by one movie with a special actor, and one album by a special group.

From Wikipedia:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saturday_Night_Fever

A huge commercial success, the film significantly helped to popularize disco music around the world and made Travolta, already well known from his role on TV’s Welcome Back, Kotter, a household name.

The Saturday Night Fever soundtrack, featuring disco songs by the Bee Gees, is the best selling soundtrack of all time.

The film is the first example of cross-media marketing, with the tie-in soundtrack’s single being used to help promote the film before its release and the film popularizing the entire soundtrack after its release.

The film also showcased aspects of the music, the dancing, and the subculture surrounding the disco era: symphony-orchestrated melodies, haute-couture styles of clothing, pre AIDS sexual promiscuity, and graceful choreography.
