Hi, Penny Lane! Yes, I like their disco music but still less than the early stuff. The early songs are very melodic, beautiful, of a special Bee Gees style. To Love Somebody is a great song. But I can`t believe somebody could have confused them with the Beatles! What about the voices and the manner of singing? Were DJs so incompetent at that time?
In general I don`t like Disco, but Bee Gees disco is somehow nice for me. Besides, I adore the film Saturday Night Fever with John Travolta. The plot is trivial but the film is well-made with Bee Gees songs. And John is so young and handsome there, dancing his classical disco dance, which has become well-known to everybody. I love him there!
Have you seen the film?
I also assume that the pressure in the 60s was great. But we have to ask our senior posters about it. Especially the witnesses of the events, the first-hand experiencers.
