In one of the most iconic films of the 1970s, Saturday Night Fever, John Travolta struts his stuff to the iconic Bee Gees song “Stayin’ Alive.” Due in part to the Bee Gees soundtrack, the disco-dancing film became a classic. The group’s amazing three-part harmonies and hallmark falsettos made for an incredible score.

The Bee Gees helped Travolta become known for his dancing. Though the group wasn’t involved in Saturday Night Fever’s soundtrack until post-production, its music may have been the most influential part. Watch as Travolta shows off his famous skills in one of disco’s most iconic scenes.

The modern reality TV favorite Dancing With the Stars showcases all kinds of dance moves, so it came as no surprise when the disco legends were asked to perform on the show in November 2009. Though Maurice had passed away by then, Robin and Barry Gibb honored his memory with a fantastic rendition of their hit “You Should Be Dancing.”
