Tuesday Tunes — The Bee Gees

Hi and Happy Tuesday. I wanted to write something for Tuesday Tunes, which I haven’t done in quite a while.  This one is on the Bee Gees, one of my all-time favorite groups.

This image is from Power Point clip art and is how I remember these three men. I am pleased to have their greatest hits album that I like to sing and dance to.

On Sunday night, we watched a great Grammy special in their honor on CBS.  Many artists performed and discussed the impact of the Brothers Gibb.  At the end, the remaining member of the group Barry Gibb performed with his band and with the other artists.  It was great and brought back so many wonderful memories.

I had forgotten how much amazing music they wrote and performed.  I liked every single song that was performed and there were a lot of them.  So many great old photos of Barry, Maurice, and Robin, as well as Andy.  The three Gibb brothers who have died were gone too soon.  Lovely tributes were made for them.  Also, John Travolta was there with Barry Gibb and his family.

The performers were: Katherine McPhee, Celine Dion, Panic at the Disco, Ed Sheeran, Keith Urban, Andra Day, DNCE, Stevie Wonder and John Legend, Little Big Town, Joe Jonas, Pentatonix, Tori Kelly, Kelsea Ballerini and Thomas Rhett, Demi Lovato, Jason Derulo and Tavares, and finally Barry Gibb.  These are not in order of performance.

Here are a just a few of the songs that I love by the Bee Gees. These were all performed during the special.  There were only two that I was not familiar with — Massachusetts and Love So Right.

  • Stayin Alive
  • You Should Be Dancing
  • Jive Talkin
  • Night Fever
  • Immortality
  • Tragedy
  • To Love Somebody
  • If I Can’t Have You
  • Too Much Heaven
  • I Just Want To Be Your Everything
  • How Can You Mend A Broken Heart
  • How Deep Is Your Love
  • Emotion
  • More Than A Woman
  • Islands In The Stream
  • Lonely Days

Amazingly, these are just some of their hits.  Hope you were able to watch these performances and tribute to this terrific band.  I for one enjoyed it very much!  Since I should be dancing, I better get to it!  Cheers!!

Five Minute Friday – Rhythm

5minutefridayToday’s word for Five Minute Friday is Rhythm.

Here are the rules:

1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking.
2. Link back here and invite others to join in.
3. And then absolutely, no ifs, ands or buts about it, you need to visit the person who linked up before you & encourage them in their comments. Seriously. That is, like, the rule. And the fun. And the heart of this community…

Now GO …

“I’ve got rhythm, I’ve got music.”  “Listen to the rhythm of the pouring rain.”

These song lyrics are the first two things that came to mind for rhythm.

I do love music and especially those songs with great rhythm.

For example, I really like Stayin Alive by the Bee Gees.  It is easy to dance to since it is in 4-4 time.  You can dance the Electric Slide to this rhythm.  This is one of my favorite dances!

I have the CD and now really want to listen to it.  Time to dance!!

As far as the rhythm of the rain, there is something very calming and relaxing to listening to a calm and steady rain.  As long as I am inside I enjoy it and sometimes feel like all my problems and cares are washing away.

There also is the rhythm of life.  I have seen it and felt it by having a child grow inside me for 9 months, then be born, and see him grow to be 5 1/2 years old.  What an amazing journey that has been.  I have truly enjoyed and been awed by each and every step.

When I was pregnant, Ian loved to move around a lot and especially liked it when I walked.  He has his own rhythm then and still does today.

“I’ve got rhythm”  Yes I do.

Now STOP!!
