Description

"Fly, Robin, Fly" is a 1975 record by the German group Silver Convention. The song was released as a single from their 1975 album Save Me. In the United States, it rose to #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in November 1975, staying there for three weeks. The single also was #1 on the soul singles chart for one week.[1] "Fly, Robin, Fly" also spent three weeks at #1 on the disco/dance charts.[2] It was the first song by a German pop group to reach number one on the American music charts. In Canada, the song also reached the pole position in the charts, hitting number one in the RPM Top Singles Chart on January 17, 1976,[3] knocking the Bay City Rollers' "Saturday Night" from the top slot, managing to keep it for a single week only before being replaced by C.W. McCall's "Convoy" a week later.[4]

"Fly, Robin, Fly" carries the distinction of being a Billboard chart-topper with one of the fewest numbers of unique words: six. The chorus simply repeats "Fly, robin, fly" three times, with an ending of "Up, up to the sky!"

During a segment on VH1's 100 Greatest Dance Songs, it was revealed that the working title was "Run, Rabbit, Run".

"Fly, Robin, Fly" won a Grammy Award for Best R&B Instrumental Performance in 1976.

The song was featured in the film Boogie Nights (1997).
