1977: A very happy #35 to Saturday Night Fever





The movie "Saturday Night Fever" hit the theaters this weekend in 1977.  The rest is history:

"Millions of Americans did, however, make it through the film that made a movie star out of 23-year-old John Travolta and propelled the already famous Mr. Gibb, along with his brothers Maurice and Barry, to a level of superstardom rarely achieved before or since. 

The film, of course, was Saturday Night Fever, a pop-cultural juggernaut that had its world premiere at Mann's Chinese Theater in Los Angeles on this day in 1977.?

Like many, I watched the movie and found the soundtrack fantastic.  I wasn't that crazy about the movie story but that's OK.  I watched the movie a couple of years ago and my original analysis is the same same:  good music, silly story!

There were four great songs from the movie.  The best song was "How deep is your love", a great love ballad.  The others were "Stayin' Alive", "Night Fever" and "More than a woman":


"I know your eyes in the morning sun
I feel you touch me in the pouring rain
And the moment that you wander far from me
I wanna feel you in my arms again

And you come to me on a summer breeze
Keep me warm in your love Then you softly leave
And it's me you need to show How deep is your love?

How deep is your love How deep is your love
I really need to learn
'Cause we're living in a world of fools
Breakin’ us down When they all should let us be
We belong to you and me

I believe in you
You know the door to my very soul
You're the light in my deepest, darkest hour
You're my saviour when I fall
And you may not think I care for you
When you know down inside That I really do

And it's me you need to show
How deep is your love? How deep is your love
How deep is your love I really need to learn
'Cause we're living in a world of fools
Breakin’ us down When they all should let us be
We belong to you and me

And you come to me on a summer breeze,
Keep me warm in your love
Then you softly leave
And it's me you need to show
How deep is your love?

How deep is your love How deep is your love
I really need to learn
'Cause we're living in a world of fools
Breakin’ us down When they all should let us be
We belong to you and me..."
