Disco Friday was always destined to have a track from the "Saturday Night Fever" soundtrack so today is the turn of the Trammps with the disco classic "Disco Inferno". Inspired by a scene in the '74 movie, The Towering Inferno, where a discotheque goes up in flames, "Disco Inferno" was originally released in '76 and topped the US disco chart in '77 for 6 weeks. But it wasn't until its inclusion on the soundtrack album that it really took off in all it's 10 minute plus glory. A great vocal group, with the added bonus of the celebratory vocals of Jimmy Ellis their music has stood the test of time pretty well and is still guaranteed to fill any self respecting dance floor today.
