"Stayin' Alive" is a song written and performed by the Bee Gees from the "Saturday Night Fever" motion picture soundtrack. The song was released in 1977 as the second single from the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack. The band co-produced the song with Albhy Galuten and Karl Richardson. It is one of the Bee Gees' signature songs. In 2004, "Stayin' Alive" was placed at No. 189 on the list of Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. The 2021 updated Rolling Stone list of 500 Greatest Songs placed "Stayin' Alive" at No. 99. In 2004, it ranked No. 9 on AFI's 100 Years...100 Songs survey of top tunes in American cinema. In a UK television poll on ITV in December 2011 it was voted fifth in "The Nation's Favourite Bee Gees Song".
On its release, "Stayin' Alive" climbed the charts to hit the number one spot on the Billboard Hot 100 the week of February 4, 1978, remaining there for four consecutive weeks. Consequently, it became one of the band's most recognizable tunes, partly because it appeared in the opening credits of Saturday Night Fever. In the United States, it would become the second of six consecutive number-one singles, tying the record with the Beatles for most consecutive number-ones in the United States at the time (a record broken by Whitney Houston who achieved seven consecutive number-ones).
