9. Chic, 'Le Freak'
Chic's 1978 disco hit "Le Freak" may seem like a celebration of the scene at disco mecca Studio 54, but it was actually inspired by band members Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards being refused entry to the club on New Year's Eve 1977, despite being invited by Grace Jones. The song has long outlived Studio 54, and it has the distinction of hitting the Number One position on the Billboard Hot 100 on three non-consecutive occasions.
