Song of the day: Bee Gees- New York Mining Disaster 1941
In 1967, the Bee Gees released the first single that would chart in the US. The song was written in the Polydor Studio’s, where a power cut took place. When they heard the elevator passing by, they thought of a text where something happens in a mine. It is also said to be inspired by a mining disaster in Wales. England thought it was a new song by the Beatles, but then undercover, and they played it a lot on the radio. This resulted in a number 12 position in the UK. In the US, it was number 14. Enjoy
