The Bee Gees were a music group formed in 1958, and the trio consisted of brothers Bary, Robin and Maurice Gibb.
They were particularly successful performers during the disco music era in the ’70s, and a lot of people likely remember their 1977 hit song “How Deep Is Your Love.”
It’s not the only Bee Gees song that hit a commercial success, but that track, alongside “Stayin’ Alive,” is certainly the most memorable one.
We found an acapella live performance from a 1998 TV show, and the show is sure to hit some nostalgia buttons for sure.
In a British TV special in 2001, ITV viewers voted it “The nation’s favorite Bee Gees song.”
“How Deep Is Your Love” was originally intended for Yvonne Elliman, but the band eventually released it in September 1977 and it was used as part of the soundtrack to the movie Saturday Night Fever.
It was a number three hit in the United Kingdom and Australia, and it topped the Billboard Hot 100 in December 1977. The track ranked number 375 on Rolling Stone’s list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. Throughout the decades, many artists covered the song—and the most notable versions are by Take That, Lea Michele and PJ Morton.
We all remember Barry’s classic R&B falsetto!
The Bee Gees brothers went down in history as three men who knew well how to balance between romance in their songs with rhythms that make you want to dance.
The band has sold over 120 million records worldwide, and they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997. The 1998 live TV show features the famous trio hosted by an equally famous English comedian, singer and television presenter Des O’Connor. For everyone who regrets not having the opportunity to see them live anymore, here is one performance that comes close to the real feel of seeing the Bee Gees on stage.
This performance has it all—including Robin’s clear vibrato and Barry’s memorable falsetto.
These men are charismatic and they sound amazing live. Add that to the fact that they wrote all their hit songs, and you’re faced with the pure talent and dedication to music. This is the kind of video that will make you understand why so many fans worldwide strongly respect their talen and longevity, as well as their place in music history.
The host also kicks in, and the resulting harmonies are a delight to listen to.
Robin, Barry and Maurice could sing, there’s no doubt about it.
Des O’Connor has pure joy written all over his face while listening to them, and he couldn’t resist joining in for a fourth part harmony. And yes, the man can harmonize—you’ll have goosebumps of how great it all sounds in the end.
Today, Barry’s the only surviving member of the group.
Maurice passed away in 2003.
Following his death, Robin and Barry retired the group’s name after the 45 years of activity. There were some plans of having just the two brothers reunite and performing again, but it didn’t happen. Sadly, Robin also passed away in 2012, after a long battle with cancer.
Barry is the only surviving member of Bee Gees, and we’re somehow certain that he enjoys watching videos like this one as much as we do.
It’s a nice way to remember one of the most successful and beloved group—and its six million YouTube views can confirm that.
