    I know, you're saying, "JC8, you punk bitch, why don't you just go to a music forum?"

    Simple, because working in references and pictures of my penis size on a music forum is more difficult than rambling here about music.

    Anyway, what does everyone listen to their favorite Bee Gee's single through?

    My budget minded setup is pretty modest (redundancy hawks, take a pass on that last sentence, I could go back and correct it but I'd rather keep my fingers moving, devil's playground and all that):

    Receiver: Pioneer 815

    Speakers: Series 7 Paradigms and a cheap Yamaha sub.

    Music source: An ancient 200 disc Sony, and a Mac Mini.

    Currently playing: Nirvana

    Who doesn't love a singing trio of brothers? Okay, it was a stab in the dark, their Wiki entry says they've sold 220 million albums, I figured the odds were with me.

    No, I never actually said that.

    I don't-you see, I don't have any Bee Gees singles, only albums. I haven't listened to the albums in over a decade, they're hidden away up on the closet shelf.


    Of course they sold all those millions- they were the main music from that late 70s movie Saturday Night Fever. which netted them several hits: How Deep Is Your Love, Stayin' Alive, Night Fever, and of course You Should Be Dancing which was originally released in '76 on their Children of The World album. Add to this their long lifespan- they were around in the 60s with such spectacular hits as New York Mining Disaster/Have You Seen My Wife Mr. Jones-(1967), I Started A Joke-(1968) and started off in the 70s with How Can You Mend A Broken Heart?-(1971), after that they sank into relative obscurity as the Anti-Disco phase of music took over; but, they resurfaced by the late 80s with You Win Again (made it to the top of the charts in The U.K., only #75 in The U.S.A.). Their kid brother Andy Gibb probably also helped since they were backup on some of his music and as backing to Samantha Sang on her hit song Emotion.


    (Okay, I know too much about The Bee Gees, everybody needs a hobby)

    Added trivia fact: The SNF soundtrack also included The Bee Gees penned, If I Can't Have You- performed by Yvonne Elliman.
