So if you missed the Grammys, there was a tribute to Bee Gees to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Saturday Night Fever. The lineup was Demi Lovato, Tori Kelly (love you), Little Big Town, and Andra Day. This was an awesome tribute and reestablished my thoughts about the Bee Gees.
They are absolutely awesome.
I am a big Bee Gees guy. They might be my favorite pop and disco band from the 70s. Check that, probably favorite band from the 70s. Just The Brothers Gibb (RIP in peace Robin and Maurice) putting out hit after hit after hit. Smooth on the harmonies and falsetto. Catchy beyond belief. The soundtrack to Saturday Night Fever was a Bee Gees masterpiece and probably what they’re most known for, which is not a bad thing whatsoever.
If you don’t believe me, I’m going to rattle off 5 songs and I dare you to come up with 5 better on one album alone. I dare you. I guarantee you will be listening to these all day and will not regret it whatsoever.
This is arguably the most famous song for knowing the beat, making up the words, and still singing. “We can try, to ba da ba, dada dada da da da, DADADADADADA DADADADADA STAYIN ALIVE STAYIN ALIVE!” This song also gave you the iconic CPR scene from The Office. 100 Beats Per Minute.

Johnny T in the electric factory!
So funky. The song where everyone will try to go high in the verses, fail, but still rock it anyway.
More Than A Woman
Would not mind if I met a girl while this song was playing. Super soft on my part, but super effective.
And my personal favorite song,
How Deep Is Your Love
Dominated this song at Karaoke with Producer Jim. Panty dropper.
These five songs were all on ONE album. That’s absolutely nuts. I didn’t even mention all of their other jams. Alone, Tragedy, Too Much Heaven, If I Can’t Have You. The list goes on and on.
You’re welcome for giving you some music to listen to at work. You’re welcome.
