  1. When this song was first played on New York City radio stations they would not reveal the name of the group. Some thought it was the Beatles.

  2. Much preferred the older Bee Gees stuff, this one and sinkin ships my favorite. I think the skinny bloke sings better.

  3. You know, when they're not singing in that stupid, squeaky-ass falsetto I can actually stand to listen to them

  4. I have a question what kine of Guitar is Barry Gibb holding is it a Gibson es 335 or 330 or an epiphone casino?

  5. Fun fact timeeeee:This song was written while an power was down in the hole city so after there were given the task of writing a song they sat down on some stairs and through all the darkness they got the idea of a miner sitting in a mine without any light!

    Also this was one of the first songs to feature more than just the three gibbs

  6. I want to tell a story, you can stick around and read it or leave.

    –Start–
    When i was 5 years old, i used to sing this songs and a couple other with my father on the way to the mall, with my mom, and dad. I knew the words, but since i'm from non english country i didn't know the meanings. Years past by, my parents got divorced. My dad married a new woman and now i don't have time to be with my dad anymore, he has a 6 year olds and a 1 year olds. So a couple weeks ago, i was going back to these songs. Like Living on a Jet plane(John Denver), I'm Yours (Jason Mraz) and others that i forgot. Now i'm older, i understand the meanings. I started crying because i remembered how fun it was to gather around with my family, once i have a kid, i'd definetly introduce them to these songs.
    –end–

    Thanks for reading, i appreciate it.

  7. Their influence on and having been influenced by the Who is clear. Likewise, the Clash and Jam owe so much to them.

  8. Ce classique des Bee-gees me rappelle les matinales de certaines radios pirates, fabuleuse époque

  9. Gibb brothers singing about the United States _ kinda Aussie strings and breaking into AM rotation with alternate Elenore 🏉 🏉 rugby

  10. Lol is anyone else disturbed that the drums don't line up at all. And literally that's not even the beat he's playing, you don't hear any toms or snare during that straight bass drum thump. Hilarious they posted this video its not even accurate.

  11. I listen to the Bee Gees as much now as I did when I was 12yo–best year of my life; I wrote to RSO Records/Robert Stigwood that year about my deep love of their music, and he sent me dozens of old-fashioned albums, a hand-written note, and 8 complimentary tickets to an upcoming Bee Gees concert in my state in return. Me & my friends had the time of our lives at that concert in '79–and it was so cool to be paged out of class at that age for a call from a "Mr. Stigwood in New York." He actually called my home phone number while I was in school, and my mom gave him the school's phone number. He was/is a class act & a kind gentleman; and my love for the Bee Gees has never waned over the years. I was wactually in the hospital when I saw on the news that Maurice had died, and kept wishing it was all just a bad dream. I miss Maurice & Robin terribly, they surely passed away far too young. I still imagine hearing the 3 of them sing together today, how brilliant that would be! The Bee Gees remain my all-time fave band, they are a legendary group for all-time–and the memories their music evokes are priceless. I love their older music equally as much as the disco era–it is all timeless. God Bless you, Sir Barry & may you rest in peace together Maurice, Robin & Andy–still harmonizing together in the Heavens above and bringing immense joy to our lives for decades to come <3

  12. If you ever needed proof that the Bee Gees were truly deep, this is it. Yes I do realize there is an unintentional pun there, sorry.
