Two titans of the disco era died last week-Donna Summer and the Bee Gees' Robin Gibb, on May 17 and 20, respectively.

The pair were inescapable on Billboard's charts in the late '70s and early '80s, with the acts ­notching a combined 22 top 10s on the Billboard Hot 100 between 1975 and 1982. In that span, Summer earned the most top 10s among all acts, while the Bee Gees had the most of all groups. In terms of all-time rankings, the Bee Gees have the third-most No. 1s among groups. Only the Supremes (12) and the Beatles (20) have more.

Summer's biggest Hot 100 hit is her 1979 ­anthem "Hot Stuff," while the Bee Gees' is the "Saturday Night Fever" soundtrack hit "How Deep Is Your Love."

In the week ending May 20, Summer's catalog of albums sold 26,000, up 3,277% from 1,000 the week previous. The impact of Gibb's death will appear on next week's charts.-Keith CaulfieldDonna Summer's Top 10 Billboard Hot 100 Hits
