1 Giorgio Moroder

He's a musical engineer & helped make EDM what it is. He invented electronic music as we know it & paved the way for all the artists to continue the electronic world of music. Yet Eurodisco's an EDM genre. He helped produce Donna Summer's peak dance song I Feel Love, which defined Eurodisco & all of EDM & paved the way for other such artists to sing such songs. Never forget what he did for the world. He's the father of disco indeed.

2 Donna Summer Ladonna Adrian Gaines (31 December 1948 - 17 May 2012) was known by her stage name, Donna Summer. She was an American singer, songwriter, and painter.

She's the top of the singing game in Eurodisco & her vocals in all her songs including I Feel Love truly set such tone for Eurodisco & all of EDM. She really nailed it. Music wouldn't have been the same way without it. She was the real dancing queen. R.I.P. to the queen of disco (1948-2012).

4 ABBA ABBA are a Swedish pop group formed in Stockholm in 1972 by members Agnetha Fältskog, Björn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson, and Anni-Frid Lyngstad.

They defined European pop music in general & experimented with popular genres including Eurodisco. Their top song Dancing Queen became the 1st #1 pop hit in Europe. Why would t they be the top band for Eurodisco music? They inspired countless artists & other bands, all showing you their diversity in quality & genres. They're unmatched.

5 Boney M. Boney M. was a vocal group created by German record producer Frank Farian. Originally based in Germany, the four original members of the group's official line-up were Jamaican-born singers Liz Mitchell and Marcia Barrett, Maizie Williams from Montserrat and Bobby Farrell from Aruba.

A Euro-Caribbean group that mixed Caribbean music with Eurodisco, funk & soul & were really popular. Their clever novelty lyrics were quite entertaining, like their story on Rasputin, an evil leader who killed the family of Nicholas II, Russia's last emperor. Yet they were pretty successful. R.I.P. Bobby Farrell (1949-2010), their only male member.

6 Dschinghis Khan

Known for their self-titled song & especially Moskau, which's better titled Moscow in English & spent 5 weeks at #1 in Australia, yet played as the theme for the Moscow Olympics at the time (which's no longer possible as Olympic Games are banned from Russia). Their signature song became a meme that's used when Russia goes crazy, which they're doing with Ukraine. Yet Moscow's known for its wide use of misheard lyrics & a recent remaster uses modern club music.
