The pop ballad " Love So Right " reached No. Following a successful live album, Here at Last Bee Gees It would be the turning point of their career. I was dancing to Stevie Wonder and Boz Scaggs. They flipped out and said these will be great. We needed something new.
So, we had to find something. Bill Oakes, who supervised the soundtrack, asserts that Saturday Night Fever did not begin the disco craze but rather prolonged it: "Disco had run its course. Truth is, it breathed new life into a genre that was actually dying.
Such was the popularity of Saturday Night Fever that two different versions of the song " More Than a Woman " received airplay, one by the Bee Gees, which was relegated to an album track, and another by Tavares , which was the hit. During a nine-month period beginning in the Christmas season of , seven songs written by the brothers held the No.
As of [update] , it is calculated as the fourth highest-selling album worldwide. Such chart dominance had not been seen since April , when the Beatles had all five of the top five American singles.
During this era, Barry and Robin also wrote " Emotion " for an old friend, Australian vocalist Samantha Sang , who made it a top 10 hit, with the Bee Gees singing backing vocals. Barry also wrote the title song to the film version of the Broadway musical Grease for Frankie Valli to perform, which went to No. The movie had been heavily promoted prior to release and was expected to enjoy great commercial success.
However, it was savaged by film critics as a disjointed mess and ignored by the public. Though some of its tracks charted, the soundtrack too was a high-profile flop. The single " Oh! Darling ", credited to Robin Gibb, reached No.
The Spirits Having Flown tour capitalised on Bee Gees fever that was sweeping the nation, with sold-out concerts in 38 cities. With this video, Pitts and Allen began a long association with the brothers. The Bee Gees even had a country hit in with " Rest Your Love on Me ", the flip side of their pop hit "Too Much Heaven", which made the top 40 on the country charts. It was also a hit for Conway Twitty , topping the country music charts.
Following their remarkable run from to , the act would have only one more top 10 single in the US, and that would not come until the single " One " reached number 7 in Barry Gibb considered the success of the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack both a blessing and a curse:. Fever was No. It was No. It was just an amazing, crazy, extraordinary time.
I remember not being able to answer the phone, and I remember people climbing over my walls. I was quite grateful when it stopped. It was too unreal. Nice though it was. The album reached No. However, the verdict was overturned a few months later. Maurice released his second single to date, " Hold Her in Your Hand ", the first one having been released in In , Diana Ross released the album Eaten Alive , written by the Bee Gees, with the title track co-written with Michael Jackson who also performed on the track.
The Bee Gees released the album E. It was their first album in six years, and their first for Warner Bros. The single " You Win Again " went to No. On 10 March , younger brother Andy Gibb died, aged 30, as a result of myocarditis , an inflammation of the heart muscle due to a recent viral infection. The last song reached No.
The album also contained their first US Top 10 hit No. The album became one of their best-selling albums in that country, and was eventually certified Triple Platinum. After the tour, Barry Gibb began to battle a serious back problem, which required surgery. In addition, he suffered from arthritis which, at one point, was so severe that it was doubtful that he would be able to play guitar for much longer. Also, in the early s, Maurice Gibb finally sought treatment for his alcoholism, which he had battled for many years with the help of Alcoholics Anonymous.
Success still eluded them in the US, however, as the first single released, " Paying the Price of Love ", only managed to reach No. In , they released the album Still Waters , which sold over four million copies and reached No. The CD of the performance sold over 5 million copies. After the immensely positive audience response to the Vegas concert, Barry decided to continue despite the pain, and the concert expanded into their last full-blown world tour of "One Night Only" concerts.
They wrote three new songs for the adaptation. Also in , the brothers released " Ellan Vannin " for Manx charities, recorded the previous year. Known as the unofficial national anthem of the Isle of Man, the brothers performed the song during their world tour to reflect their pride in the place of their birth.

There is nothing wrong with the Bee Gees. They do a damn good job. There was nothing else going on then". We Rock and Roll guys thought we were dead meat when that movie and the Bee Gees came out. The Bee Gees were brilliant musicians and really nice people.
No big egos. Rod, in his brilliance, decided to do a spoof on disco. VERY smart man. There is no such thing as a "dumb" super success in the music business. Kevin Parker of Tame Impala has said that listening to the Bee Gees after taking mushrooms inspired him to change the sound of the music he was making in his album Currents. The English indie rock band the Cribs was also influenced by the Bee Gees.
Cribs member Ryan Jarman said: "It must have had quite a big influence on us — pop melodies is something we always revert to. We loved their songwriting and beautiful harmonies. Sadly we lost Robin Gibb this week. My heart goes out to his brother Barry and the rest of his family.

They just had a sound that was all their own, obviously, [it was] never duplicated". Not just a great band, but a great group of songwriters. Their talent went far beyond their moment of normal pop success. It is a loss to the music industry and a loss of an iconic group.
