Listen anytime, anywhere in our free app!
1. Village People - Y.M.C.A.
You know the moves… a great one to teach the fam (if they don’t know it already)!
2. The Trammps - Disco Inferno
Saturday Night Fever brought this fiery track to massive fame.
3. Earth, Wind & Fire – September
Definitely not confined to the first month of Spring, but one for all day partying all year round!
4. Lipps Inc – Funkytown
Won’t you take me to … ? It won’t be long before everyone’s singing along.
5. Chic - Le Freak (2006 Remastered Version)
Clap along with Chic’s cream of the crop. Smooth, swanky and groovy, it’s driven by that deep bass groove.
6. Boney M - Hooray Hooray It's A Holiday
Slightly annoying, but a classic. It WILL get stuck in everyone’s heads. Hidey hidey ho.
7. Leo Sayer - You Make Me Feel Like Dancing
Could be a dangerous one to share with bubs… we certainly DO NOT want them dancing the night away (please sleep!).
8. Carl Douglas - Kung Fu Fighting
You best believe the kidlets are gonna start karate chopping like there’s not tomorrow.
9. Wild Cherry - Play That Funky Music
An autobiographical track, Wild Cherry used to play hard rock, before switching over to the funky side.
10. John Paul Young - Love is in the Air
It is! Especially around our little loved ones.
11. ABBA - Dancing Queen
Strike a pose and get out all the sparkles in the dress up box. It’s time for a musical journey to Sweden.
12. Sister Sledge - We Are Family
Belt it out with your family young and old. Kids love this song!
13. Bee Gees - Stayin Alive
This tune is the hallmark of this disco era, another one that featured on Saturday Night Fever and became a household name.
14. KC and The Sunshine Band - Shake Your Booty
A little bit cheeky this one! But great for shaking all body parts on the DF.
