This was the Bee Gees third #1 hit- and one that I tend to forget. They were a year away from exploding with their music on the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack. They were now clearly in the disco genre. I wasn’t into disco at the time [not that I have ever been ‘into’ disco} but I did at the time like the Bee Gees and Donna Summer. “You Should Be Dancing” was one of six Bee Gee songs on the Saturday Night Fever album. Stephen Stills was at the studio when the Bee Gees were recording this- making an album with his old buddy Neil Young- and adds percussion on the song!

One response to “BILLBOARD #1 HITS: #402: ” YOU SHOULD BE DANCING”- BEE GEES – SEPTEMBER 4, 1976

  1. This is my favorite ‘disco’ song by the Bee Gees – they’ve claimed that “Stayin’ Alive” and “Night Fever” were not actually disco songs. That’s an interesting bit of trivia I didn’t know re: Stephen Stills playing percussion on the song.
