Some thirty years later on here is the legendary "Bee Gees" as you've never seen or heard them before. This is a simply awesome fully "revived" & rare collage of memorable footage... a more than fitting tribute to these amazingly gifted artists!
"Night Fever", is a song that was written and performed by The Bee Gees that was on the soundtrack to Saturday Night Fever that came from the trio, and the album's third hit single (after "How Deep Is Your Love" and "Stayin' Alive"). In the United States, "Night Fever" was the latest in a string of number-one hits for the trio; in the United Kingdom, it was their first chart-topper in nearly ten years.
Although "Stayin' Alive" was released first, The Bee Gees had penned "Night Fever" before their other songs on the soundtrack.
The movie revolved around the songs on the soundtrack, a rarity in cinema. Producer Robert Stigwood wanted to call the film "Saturday Night", but singer Robin Gibb expressed hesitation at the title. Stigwood liked the title "Night Fever" but was wary of marketing a movie with that name. He combined the two suggestions and the idea for Saturday Night Fever as a motion picture was born.
After the breakout success of the movie and the soundtrack, RSO Records released "Night Fever," which easily found its way to number one on the Billboard Hot 100 after six weeks. "Night Fever" held onto the top slot from mid-March until the second week in May, with "Stayin' Alive" resting at number two for several weeks. In the UK, "Night Fever" hit number one while "Stayin' Alive" peaked at number four. Additionally, "Night Fever" replaced the Bee Gee's younger brother Andy Gibb's "Love Is Thicker Than Water" at number one (which had replaced "Stayin' Alive") on the Hot 100 and was in turn replaced by Yvonne Elliman's "If I Can't Have You" - all of which were written and produced by the Gibb brothers. Resting at number three during "Night Fever"'s number-one run was the Gibb-produced "Emotion" by Samantha Sang, demonstrating the Bee Gees chart domination during 1978.
The success of The Bee Gees' album (in no small part due to the success of "Night Fever" as a single) led to five Grammy nominations in 1978.
