In 1973, Gloria Gaynor made history as Billboard gave birth to the Disco Action Charts. “Never Can Say Good-Bye” bowed at #1 on the charts and became the first Dance Song to reach #1 status in dance music. 30 years later, Gloria Gaynor is still setting the standard. In March of 2001, her single, “Just Keep Thinkin’ About You,” topped the Billboard Dance/Club charts at #1, while her international hit “Last Night” with Giorgio Moroder debuted at #1 throughout Europe. In keeping with the theme of #1, Gloria Gaynor was the first to record an album especially for clubs, and the first to do a mega-extended dance medley party mix, releasing 12” dance singles that are now high-end collectors items.
