Song of the Day: The Bee Gees, “How Can You Mend A Broken Heart”

Today is the birthday of Robin and Maurice Gibb, two-thirds of The Bee Gees. They would be 71 today. "How Can You Mend A Broken Heart" was their comeback single in 1971, after having separated for a couple of years. It reached #1 on both the Billboard Hot 100 and the Cashbox Top 100 Singles.

  1. I really like this song and I actually love their music that was not disco, before their huge disco fever days. What a shame the 2 brothers died too young and, I think, from the same cancer?. I know there was an issue when Maurice died…I have to look it up.

    1. Maurice died of a twisted intestine that caused cardiac arrest. There was some controversy over whether they should have operated while he was having a heart attack.

  2. Right now I’m watching a morning news show and they’re doing a feature on The Bee Gees and the documentary. Their music was incredible. I feel bad for Barry, he apparently misses his brothers more than anything.

  3. I loved the Bee Gees. They had a terrible time during the “Disco Sucks” time period. That was when they decided to concentrate on writing songs for other artists. They wrote so many great songs. Their harmonies were flawless.

    Love,
