I Will Survive

I Will Survive by Gloria Gaynor was a UK number 1 hit on Saturday, March 17, 1979 spending 4 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. This won the 1979 Grammy for Best Disco Recording, beating out "Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough," "Bad Girls," "Boogie Wonderland" and "Da Ya Think I'm Sexy?" It was the first and last time the Grammy was offered in this category. Gaynor sees this song as just a simple song about survival, regardless of what you have to overcome.

In June 1998, the French football team (or as Americans call it, soccer) made this their World Cup anthem.
