Some of the Bee Gees greatest hits include "You Should Be Dancin'," "Stayin' Alive" and "How Deep Is Your Love?"

"You Should Be Dancin'," from the Bee Gees 1976 album, "Children of the World," was wildly popular and solidified the Bee Gees' place in the world of disco music. The track reached number one on Billboard's hit singles chart and was the first song that showcased Barry Gibb's falsetto range. It was also the only Bee Gees song to reach the number one spot on Billboard's dance chart, where it remained for seven weeks.
"Stayin' Alive" was written for the band's producer, Robert Stigwood, for use in his movie, "Saturday Night Fever." The song became somewhat of a trademark hit for the Bee Gees, and one of the disco anthems of the late 1970s. The song hit number one on Billboard's pop singles chart and sold more than 2 million copies.
Another hit from the "Saturday Night Fever" album is "How Deep Is Your Love?" This song started a string of six consecutive Bee Gees' singles to hit number one on Billboard's charts, and won a Grammy Award for pop vocal performance by a duo or group.Learn more about Art & Literature
