6. I like the Bee Gees
I forgave them for Disco as well as that Sgt. Pepper's abomination. I Started a Joke is a hell of a song and frankly, if one listens objectively, so is Stayin' Alive.

7. more than one, but couldn't find Edge of the Universe on you tube..edit; just found it
Edited on Sun Jan-17-10 12:49 PM by abq e streeter
They did a lot of unlistenable crap, but had some nice stuff too; some has already been posted. This one, that I couldn't find ( just found), is IMO, their best, even though this version goes on about a minute too long, again, IMO...

also, had never heard the OP's song, Alone, and that is a very nice song too.

9. C'mon, lots of Bee Gees songs didn't entirely suck
For example:

The Bee Gees got a bad rap for causing all of disco when they were really just one example of many of disco's overindulgences. Besides, had rock and roll not hit a crappy phase, the door would not have been open for disco to rule the airwaves in the late 70s and early 80s.

I mean, really, Bachman Turner Overdirve, Meatloaf, and Rod Stewart? Blame them instead.
