Open Letter to the Bee Gees
Bee Gees - Too Much Heaven
Bee Gees - How Deep Is Your Love
Letter includes their 40 Greatest Hits!
Dear Brothers Gibb; I've Got A Message To Get To You and what better way than with a personal fan letter! I have many Words of appreciation for The Bee Gees. While listening to your music, one never feels Alone. I feel the need to share my Emotions regarding how much I enjoy your songs with you.
I am Guilty of enjoying the disco days of the 70's and 80's and I tended to do much Jive Talkin'. I had a Secret Love, or more of a crush on Barry! What woman didn't!? I used to think If I Can't Have You I don't want nobody baby, but I moved on One day. Luckily! It didn't take me long to figure out How Can You Mend A Broken Heart! My friends and family were sure relieved! It was a whole new World for me!
I Started A Joke one day while I was listening to my Saturday Night Fever album and I announced I was going to purchase some Islands In The Stream! Since I was a broke teen my joke didn't work out too well. So, I told my friends...You Win Again.
The news of your brother Andy passing away in 1988 was a Heartbreaker. You brothers must have had many Lonely Nights missing him, and I'm sure you still do. To Love Somebody one day and the next day they are gone is a Tragedy. Another sad time for you was when you lost Robin in 2003. All four brothers Loved So Right and now there were two. Times such as these make us question our own Immortality. Would you want to always be Stayin' Alive? If the aging process was halted I'd consider it, but if that deal falls through I would pass.
OK, I was just Saved By The Bell...I have to take a phone call I'll be back!
Whether you were performing in the United Kingdom where you were born, Australia where you were raised or in Massachusetts your songs always climbed the charts! Do you often travel back to Queensland, Australia for a Holiday? I'd like to travel down under one day soon. We could meet up and visit with my friend Glyn in Tasmania...she would Love You Inside Out!
Saturday Night Fever is the 4th highest-selling album worldwide! You Should Be Dancing everyday with that incredible milestone! The disco era was drawing to an end until the Bee Gees stepped in and said This Is Where I Came in with your hits and prolonged the disco days! Not even a New York Mining Disaster could stop you!
I predict you celebrated with many fun Nights On Broadway with your gals who were More Than A Woman to you! You also experienced many Night Fevers by showing How Deep Is Your Love. I always tell my friends Don't Forget To Remember the Bee Gees. If they should ever need a reminder they could Run To Me! Except for the First Of May because that's when I celebrate Tim McGraw's birthday. I enjoy a wide variety of music. My Fanny Be Tender writing all the time! There are times when I just have to get up and dance! I have some moves called Spicks and Specks which also happens to be your first single released in the UK in 1966! On a final note I'd like to emphasize that listening to the Bee Gees music one could never get Too Much Heaven.
Love Me and I love you Barry, Robin (RIP), and Maurice (RIP).
P.S. This letter includes 39 out of their 40 Greatest Hits songs. I tried but I couldn't seem to fit one song in my letter ... For Whom The Bell Tolls ... I am accepting ideas in the comment section below. Thank you!
