Songs in My Head - 7/20/21

I recently watched a biography of the Bee Gees; and it was not surprising that I would come away with at least one song in my head. "Nights on Broadway" was released in 1975 and is just one of my many favorites. The Bee Gees have had rather tragic lives. Barry Gibb is the only surviving brother of the group. Andy Gibb, the youngest, joined the group rather late; and the other brothers felt that he should have been with them all along and that the Bee Gees finally felt complete. Unfortunately Andy died shortly after joining the group due to a heart attack brought on by his drug use. Maurice died of complications of surgery; and Robin died of cancer. The Bee Gees wrote over 1,000 songs both for themselves and for other artists such as Barbra Streisand and Celine Dion. Do you have a song in your head? Photo Credit: Pixabay
Main Course is the Bee Gees' thirteenth album, released in 1975 for the RSO label, and their last album to be released by Atlantic Records in the U.S. under ...

Yeah, Barry definitely turned out to be the "lucky" one of the group. Love that song by the way. But then, I like the Bee Gees in general.

@LindaOHio I would have to agree. If I were to make a Top 10 I think the Bee Gee's would be in there too. Along with Elton John, The Beatles, and you know what... I should actually try to come up with my top 10 and make a post. I'd actually be interested to know what I come up with. lol

@porwest It looks like I have the same Top 10. I wanted to go to Elton John's concert in Cleveland; but they didn't have any handicap seats. I would have to go in a wheelchair as I have mobility issues.

@LindaOHio I made a mistake in writing. Instead of Gees, I wrote Bees I can't believe you're so hairy, so it was obvious.

One of my favorite Bee Gees songs among many! I put that one as my final song on my Bee Gee's greatest hits playlist as it has such an upbeat rhythm with a powerful harmony. It adds a nice balance to their more mellow tunes. This song introduced the famous falsetto singing Barry used so successfully on the Saturday Night Fever Soundtrack...

Yes. Barry was pleasantly surprised that his falsetto voice was met with such a following.

I love The Bee Gees. I should have their greatest hits album. Unless I kept it at my parents’ house. Right now the song that’s stuck in my head is “Bad Habits” by Ed Sheeran.

I remember when the Bee Gees were first known as the Billy Goats...I told Barry that wasn't a good name and suggested they just use the initials and make people guess what they stood for
