|Bee Gees singles chronology|
"Night Fever" is a disco song, written and performed by the Bee Gees. It first appeared on the soundtrack to Saturday Night Fever. Producer Robert Stigwood wanted to call the film Saturday Night, but singer Robin Gibb expressed hesitation at the title. Stigwood liked the title Night Fever, but was wary of marketing a movie with that name. He combined the two suggestions and the idea for Saturday Night Fever as a motion picture was born.
"Night Fever" remained the number one Billboard Hot 100 single for over two months in 1978. It also replaced Andy Gibb's "Love Is Thicker Than Water" at number one, and was in turn replaced by Yvonne Elliman's "If I Can't Have You" - all of which were written and produced by the Gibb brothers.
In addition to Saturday Night Fever, the song has also appeared in the movie and on the soundtrack for Mystery Men.
The song lists at number 33 on Billboard's All Time Top 100.
Music video 
A rare music video was made for the song in 1978, however, it wasn't shown to the public until 2004 despite the fact the video didn't contain any uncensored content.[clarification needed] It features the brothers singing the song in a dark studio cut Golden Nugget, Castaways and Desert Inn casinos). In the video, Barry Gibb was shown without his trademark beard.Video was filmed on Collins Ave. in North Miami Beach on a 3 mile hotel strip starting from new port pier to the entrance of golden beach. That area is now Sunny Isles beach.
