Any other Bee Gees fans on this message board?


Recommended Posts

I'm definitely a product of the 70's and therefore a Bee Gee's fan!  I can't think of one song of theirs that I don't like.  I recently discovered a song of theirs I hadn't heard before called "You Win Again" when I was watching a documentary on their lives on PBS and that is now my favorite song of theirs.  So sad that there is only one (Barry) of them alive now, I'm sure he misses all his brothers terribly.  Can you imagine being in a Kingdom Hall with all of them harmonizing behind you?!!! How fantastic would that be? It would bring our kingdom hall singing to a whole new level!

LOL  Everyone else would be too intimidated to join in. lol  

 

I feel bad for Barry, too...having to bury three of his younger brothers. :(   

 

My collection of their music is pretty complete.  I've got their songs on vinyl, 8-track, cassettes, wav. CDs and digital mp3s.  :D 

They truly were geniuses at what they did.  Like modern-day Mozarts.  I can't imagine coming up with one song and they have written HUNDREDS AND HUNDREDS of them.   Only The Beatles and the Supremes have recorded more No. 1 hits on Billboard Magazine's Hot 100 list:

 

http://www.billboard.com/biz/articles/news/1097712/bee-gees-rank-third-for-most-hot-100-no-1s-in-history

The trio racked up nine Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 singles -- more than any other group in history save for the Beatles (with 20) and the Supremes (12). Of their chart-topping hits, their biggest is "How Deep Is Your Love," which reigned for three weeks in 1977 and spent 33 weeks on the chart -- the group's longest-running single.

On Billboard's compilation of the Bee Gees' top 20 Hot 100 singles, "How Deep Is Your Love" is joined by the act's 14 other top 10 singles, including such massive No. 1s as "Night Fever," "Stayin' Alive," "How Can You Mend a Broken Heart" and "Jive Talkin'."

The Bee Gees' initial chart hit came in 1967, with "Now York Mining Disaster 1941," which climbed to No. 14 and became the first of 43 Hot 100 hits for the group. They most recently charted in 1997 with "Still Waters (Run Deep)," a single from their Still Waters album. The song topped out at No. 57.

Additionally, Robin Gibb's chart success wasn't limited to songs that the Bee Gees recorded. He also co-wrote, with his bandmate brothers Barry and Maurice, Yvonne Elliman's Hot 100 No. 1 "If I Can't Have You." With brother Andy Gibb, the trio authored his third No. 10, "Shadow Dancing." As recently as 2001, Robin Gibb's name appeared in the Hot 100's top 10: Destiny's Child's cover of Samantha Sang's No. 3 hit from 1978, "Emotion," reached No. 10.

This ranking of the Bee Gees' biggest Billboard hits is based on actual performance on the weekly Billboard Hot 100 chart. Songs are ranked based on an inverse point system, with weeks at No. 1 earning the greatest value and weeks at No. 100 earning the least. To ensure equitable representation of the biggest hits from each era, certain time frames were weighted to account for the difference between turnover rates from those years.

Bee Gees' Top 20 Billboard Hits

Rank - Title - (Year) - Hot 100 Peak Position (weeks spent at No. 1)

1. "How Deep Is Your Love" - (1977) - No. 1 (for 3 weeks) 

2. "Night Fever" - (1978) - No. 1 (8 weeks) 

3. "Stayin' Alive" - (1978) - No. 1 (4 weeks) 

4. "How Can You Mend a Broken Heart" - (1971) - No. 1 (4 weeks) 

5. "Jive Talkin'" - (1975) - No. 1 (2 weeks) 

6. "Too Much Heaven" - (1979) - No. 1 (2 weeks) 

7. "Love So Right" - (1976) - No. 3 

8. "You Should Be Dancing" - (1976) - No. 1 (1 week) 

9. "Tragedy" - (1979) - No. 1 (two weeks) 

10. "Love You Inside Out" - (1979) - No. 1 (1 week) 

11. "Lonely Days" - (1971) - No. 3 

12. "Nights on Broadway" - (1975) - No. 7 

13. "I've Gotta Get a Message To You" - (1968) - No. 8 

14. "I Started a Joke" - (1969) - No. 6 

15. "One" - (1989) - No. 7 

16. "Fanny (Be Tender With My Love)" - (1976) - No. 12 

17. "Boogie Child" - (1977) - No. 12 

18. "Words" - (1968) - No. 15 

19. "Run to Me" - (1972) - No. 16 

20. "(The Lights Went Out In) Massachusetts" - (1967) - No. 11

 

They have even written songs that other artists took to No. 1 in the charts.  I like singing along to their "One Night Only" concert.  They let PBS use that concert for their fundraisers.

 Bee Gees were good, yet I wonder how many of their songs deal with reincarnation? Why? Because they believe in it. Do we remember "Wild Fire" by Micheal Murphy? It deals with a Ghost Horse or Reincarnation.

 

Hi Brother Glenn!  :wave: 

 

Since music has such a strong influence on our minds and hearts, I am extra vigilant about lyrics.  Songs with beautiful melodies or real catchy beats can have very raunchy lyrics.   I have all the lyrics to all of their songs and I have never seen any references to reincarnation.  But it's something to be aware of, that's for sure.  Satanic influences are EVERYWHERE these dark days.

I love the story on how they created Jive Talkin by driving over a bridge and the grooves in it is what made the beat to Jive Talkin. 

I love the Bee Gees!!!

 

Hi, Deenna!  :wave: 

 

That is pretty neat, hey? :D  They sure have some great imaginations! ^_^ 

 

I got to hear Barry Gibb sing 'Sinatra' at a Diabetes Fundraiser in Miami, Florida, back in 2003...I think. :huh:  He's over sixty now and still singing and touring and still writing songs, though he claims it's harder writing all alone. :(

One of the Brothers Gibb, namely Andy did one of my favorite songs of all time. I also liked their work together.

 

Hi Brother Randall  :wave:

 

My favorite Andy Gibb song is one his brothers wrote for him called "Arrow Through the Heart".  It is soooooo beautiful.  :sleep: If you haven't heard it yet, I hope you get the chance to someday.

My parents and my older sister listened to them and I did like their music.

Now, I have their " #1" CD and the songs on it are all good but "How do you mend a broken heart" was one that I listened to a lot at some point.

 

Hi Hasina/Raindrop  :wave: 

 

The first song I ever heard of theirs was "I've Gotta Get a Message To You".  I heard those heavenly harmonies and I was hooked. One of my other faves of theirs was "Run To Me"...a very pretty, relaxing, soothing song.   Have you ever seen their "One Night Only" concert?  It's like a video version of their #1 Hits CD.  :D

Hi Sister Gabe/1gemstone  :wave: 

 

Wow!  What a great idea!  Thanks for sharing that with me!!!  :D 

 

Now I can pass the favor along to Brother Randall/Witness 1970 with Andy Gibb singing "Arrow Through the Heart: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I60Y8ClU56A

 

And, if you want to hear something REALLY beautiful, here is The Bee Gees' "855-7019" song:

Love Barry. Especially in Stayin. Alive. Awesome Band. I dreamed of seeing their last tour.

but couldnt afford it.

 

Hi Sister Gabe/surfergirl :wave: 

 

I know, right?  Their "One Night Only" concert at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, in 1997 was over $600 a seat.   Way out of my price range, too.  Paid just $25 for the CD of the same concert and now I can watch it whenever the mood hits me.  :thumbsup:

The BeeGee's were good. Not necessarily a fan, as I don't like to listen to music "before my time" lol, but I do particularly love the song "I started a joke". It was covered by a band I adore and I sing it when I go out for karaoke :)

 

Hi Brother Bob/Dismal_Bliss :wave: 

 

Cool! B)  I would love to hear your karaoke version of this fine Bees' tune!!! :thumbsup:   If you're willing, have a friend videotape your next performance and post it on youtube.  :yes:   Or, just make an mp3 of it and put it in the files.  ><img src=<'> Robin Gibb sang that song thousands of times and yet he still flubbed the lyrics on their last Las Vegas concert.  Too bad he didn't have a karaoke machine in front of him to read them from.  :D

 If I offend you, then I'm very sorry. Bee Gees are good and I love a lot of their songs. A matter of fact, after I made the post last night, then I was listening to Jive Talkin. Yes, Satanic influences everywhere even in my favorate group BEATLES. I should mention it doesn't matter what group is out there, one way another, Satan has them.

No offense taken, Brother Glenn/Dustparticle :D   

 

We really can't be too careful these days and any and all warnings and reminders greatly appreciated.   :D 

 

And, you are soooo right about Satan!  :yes:   

 

Satan is like the man behind the curtain, in The Wizard of Oz--he may be out of sight, but, for now, at least, his hands are on the controls.  Lends new meaning to that old Bible tune: "He's Got the Whole World in His Hands", don't it.  :huh:

 

Do you have any Paul McCartney and Wings?  I really like their "Band on the Run" album.  :D

"Abbey Road" and "Sgt. Peppers" are two of my fave Beatles' albums.  :wave:

 I have a lot of Beatles , even their bootleg music too. I bet the FBI want there hands on these since they are illegal. Abbey Road was really their last Album. Also, I have McCartney and Wings greatest hits and It is good. It would be better off if the Beatles remain together.

 

 Beatles did everything from scratch. Revolution 9 had 100 different sound effects in it forward and backwards. I don't see there is a song today that has it. This song is way ahead of it's time and John Lennon was the main one behind it.

The Bee Gees loved to add sound effects to their tracks, too. :yes:   If you listen close enough to some of their songs, you can hear phones ringing, winds blowing, windshield wipers going, bat wings flapping--all kinds of neat stuff.  They were perfectionists and wouldn't release a song unless they were happy about how it turned out.

One group from the 60's that everyone seems to forget about is the Association. They had some really good songs though.
