Night owl chat – The Bee Gees

In response to several requests, I present the Brothers Gibb.

Now, let me be perfectly frank. My earliest musical tastes were formed by my brothers, which involved pure rock and roll. And then when I became old enough to develop tastes of my own, I went everywhere from old school rap, to classical, to jazz, to new wave, to indie, and beyond. If you look at my “played list” from Google Play Music, it is a smorgasbord of musical insanity. Needless to say, I held disco in disdain for a long time.

But, you get older, and your tastes mutate, and the Brothers Gibb have found a small niche in my musical heart. And, of course, they had a career before and after “Saturday Night Live”.

Get your dancing shoes on, and hustle to the Bee Gees.

(True story: my older cousin won a disco dancing competition. I wonder if that’s a predictor of right wing politics as an adult?)

    From one of the comments (and pretty much how it was back in the ’70s!:

    I like the story he told about writing this song. This is from a 12/9/71 Rolling Stone album review. Cat said: “I get the tune and then I just keep on singing the tune until the words come out from the tune. It’s kind of a hypnotic state that you reach after a while when you keep on playing it where words just evolve from it. So you take those words and just let them go whichever way they want… ‘Moonshadow’? Funny, that was in Spain, I went there alone, completely alone, to get away from a few things. And I was dancin’ on the rocks there… right on the rocks where the waves were like blowin’ and splashin’. Really, it was so fantastic. And the moon was bright, ya know, and I started dancin’ and singin’ and I sang that song and it stayed. It’s just the kind of moment that you want to find when you’re writin’ songs.” — Cat Stevens to a Boston DJ

    Wow. Here’s a sobering quote from our AG via TME … the “cut deeper” part really gets me. Truth.
