    Yep it was Saturday Night Fever. The Bee Gees did an amazing job with that album.

    Saturday Night Fever by the Bee Gees (and assorted artists) and The Wall by Pink Floyd were battling for the top spot when Thriller came out.

    In this vague world of sorrow and frailty, only the Artist can leave an eternal footprint in the sands of time,thereby resisting the strongest of winds, and coming as near to immortality as possible.

    You made my life special...and I will forever be grateful for that. I WILL pay back to you, I swear. I love you,Michael...and I'll love you as long as I am breathing...

    And I'm hoping that my prayers will see
    the day that You'll come back to me...

    Nah, dude. Elvis didn't sell 10 million copies of one album until recently. The Beatles got like six albums that did 10-15 million copies but the Bee Gees and Pink Floyd had the world's best-selling albums before Thriller.

    I don't think that there was an album very successful and hugely publicized since Thriller came out at least it's not to my knowledge.
