FlinterFile: The Bee Gees- How Deep Is Your Love

1978 was a very successful year for the Bee Gees, as several songs from the soundtrack of Saturday Night Fever reached number 1 in the US. This one already hit the top spot at the end of 1977…This song originally was meant to be sung by Yvonne Elliman, but the producer of the movie wanted the Bee Gees to sing it themselves. Elliman would sing If I Can’t Have You for the soundtrack. On the song, Robin and Barry Gibb sang the same lyrics at the same time, which created the effect that it sounded as if only one person was singing. They did that more, for example also on New York Mining Disaster 1941. In 1983, there was a claim the Bee Gees had copied the song from an unreleased song by a man named Robert Selle. Although the jury said they copied it, the verdict was nullified. The song was number 3 in the UK and made number 1 in the US. Enjoy
