This is kind of a tragedy. People scoff at the Bee Gees, what with the disco association and all. But they had tight, soaring harmonies, and while the music maybe wasn’t groundbreaking or profound it was sincere. Any given Gibb boy had more talent in one chest hair than most of today’s pop performers can muster at all.
Agreed. I wasn’t much of a Bee Gees fan back in my younger days (although I did like Stayin’ Alive), but I’d much rather today listen to any of their music over any of today’s garbage.
Their own performances may be what they are remembered for, but the Bee Gees were/are prolific songwriters for other artists. A lot of hits.
