This countdown will feature my favourite songs by the Bee Gees, not only their own songs but also songs they wrote for other acts.

Words has a great performance, I like Barry's "rich" voice more than his falsetto.

This Is Where I Came In was a great unintended farewell from them.

He's A Liar is underrated and really catchy, the synth solo part is kinda eerie.

World is ace too.

Boys Do Fall In Love was a nice song, also made the US top 40 (#37 I believe) in 1984.

Grease of course is a classic theme from a classic movie.

One was a great US comeback track, surprised it wasn't bigger in the UK where "You Win Again" had been a blockbuster earlier.

Islands In The Stream is also a classic.

You Should Be Dancing is nice, actually their only #1 on the Dance Chart

"Shadow Dancing" is decent, but still considering it held Gerry Rafferty's "Baker Street" and ABBA's "Take A Chance On Me" from the top in the US makes me a tad bitter :lol:

"I've Gotta Get A Message To You" is a true Robin tearjerker as well

Well I guess the fact that Andy Gibb had a much bigger sex appeal than Gerry Rafferty or B & B from Abba played a role in that :lol:

Alone was a nice comeback tune for them.

If I Can't Have You of course is also great.

Emotion was good too
