The Bee Gees - Part 3

Although most of you probably never heard most of it, The Bee Gees continued to release new music throughout the 1980's and 1990's. (The Brothers Gibb ... always prolific songwriters ... kept afloat by writing songs for OTHER artists during this era, too ... Samantha Sang, Celine Dion, Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton, Dionne Warwick, Diana Ross, Barbra Streisand and baby brother Andy Gibb ALL enjoyed HUGE hits on the charts, supplied by the songwriting team of one or more of The Bee Gees brothers.)

One of my favorites, "You Win Again' SHOULD have been a much bigger hit than it was ... it peaked at #75 in 1987 but topped the charts in Great Britain. Then, in 1989, The Bee Gees scored their first U.S. Top Ten Hit in ten years when "One" went to #7.
Their last "official" Top 40 Record came in 1997 when "Alone" reached #28 on The Billboard Chart ... and it sounds as good as anything else they ever recorded during their "falsetto period" some twenty years earlier.

Finally, AGES ago we treated you to one of the tracks off the last album all three brothers recorded together, "This Is Where I Came In" from 2001. Maurice would leave us two years later. 

By the way, if you ever get the chance to see the "This Is Where I Came In" Bee Gees Documentary, try and catch it ... it's one of the best, most entertaining, well-done artist portraits I've ever seen. It was recently repackaged as a 2-DVD Set with their INCREDIBLE Concert Film "One Night Only" ... both WELL worth the musical investment!

You Win Again
