Michael Jackson

Elton John

Just to name a few well respected artists who have named the Bee Gees as an influence.

The list goes on and on.

I can see some of these people but these bolded artists were successful and making music that influenced people before the Bee Gees knew what success was...maybe it's a case of being musicans' musicans but yeah, the folk Bee Gees may have been good songwriters but they have nothing on these people's musical history.


With the exception of Elton John, who I don't particularly care for (tho I do keep meaning to investigate his '70s work more), I agree. Tho I'd say Billy Joel is more the 'American Elton John', musically speaking. biggrin

I confess I'm very unfamiliar with the Bee Gees albums. Do they have anything approaching a 'classic album' in their back catalogue? Maybe 'Saturday Night Fever', I suppose, but I only really know them from their singles.

The Bee Gees may be judged more kindly as time goes on. But Saturday Night Fever became a joke when disco went out. The hair, the outfits, the chest medallions, the high voices were completely ridiculed, and it hurt the perception of the music, which was actually pretty good.

Also, probably not that many people (UK excepted) even know the earlier stuff, so they only think of them as a disco band.


Lets also remember that Saturday Night Fever and the music the Bee Gees did for it, wasnt meant for the movie, they were recording a new album when the producer called and said we want you to do the music for a movie and when they heard the basis of the movie they were like "whatever, no one is going care about that movie". Its funny how the Bee Gees get slighted for being in the middle of DISCO and yet Donna Summer gets praised (not that she isnt great) so once again theres a huge double standard. The funny thing is many have been influenced by the Bee Gees, but when you ask it always seems to be the Stones,Beatles and then when you get someone alone and off the record they will say the Bee Gees.

Don't talk about what you don't know.
The Bee Gees were a hugely successful band internationally from the moment they released their first album.

Then why would someone think they weren't around before Bowie & Elton?

Bee Gees First
Odessa

Those four tend to be the critic's choices.

Size Isn't Everything and Still Waters from later years also get high acclaim.

I think another great comparison to what the Bee Gees are penalized for, would be CHICAGO, i am totally convinced that Chicago has not been put in the hall of fame due to the "ballads" of the 80's, though the Bee Gees did get into the Hall Of Fame when they were due, Chicago is yet another LEGEND that is ignored.

Totally agreed, i also really liked the "This is Where i came in" album, especially that title track, very underrated record.

I have always been a fan of the Bee Gees, but I would never say they were better than the Beatles or Stones. They had a unique sound and were great singers/songwriters. They do deserve a lot of respect.

When someone says something like "or even the FRIGGIN Beach Boys", it shows me they don't understand real music. No offence, this is just my thoughts.


I understand real music trust me on that, im not slighting the Beach Boys but i am pointing out there are alot of "hipocracy" in the "legends" category. Brian Wilson is a genius as is Mick Jagger and Lennon/McCartney and many others but to eliminate The Gibb brothers from that is INSANITY. Whether you like them or not, shouldnt be apoint and that they were in the middle of "disco", but lets not forget that Clapton and Arif Mardin the Greatest producer ever, pushed them to do "Jive Talkin" and "You Should be dancing". And i never hear anyone talking about what came before that, their early works is right up there with the "legends" we so praise. Tracks like "New York mining Disaster" "to Love Somebody" "Holiday" "Words" and "Lonely Days" to name a few amongst the genius that they did during the years of 1966-1972, and we cant forget their personal George Martin who was Robert Stigwood, who was just as important to them as George Martin was to the Beatles. Its not a put down of others, its recognizing what they did.


Thanks for the clarification. I understand your point better now.

I also think it should also be noted, that of the legends mentioned the Bee Gees were the ones that embraced RB and Funk the most and brought that into their creation, lets not forget that "To Love Somebody" was written for Otis Redding but he died before recording it. And their 3-part harmonies are very RB influenced.

You are absolutely correct.In fact,in the 70s,the Bee Gees were really doing R&B.Songs like "You Should Be Dancing","Lovers","Jive Talkin" and "Boogie Child" are funky R&B jams."Love So Right" is a straight-up R&B ballad.It's only when their songs were used in a disco film (Saturday Night Fever) that they were considered "a disco band".Unlike the Beach Boys,the Gibb brothers have alot of R&B credibility.Al Green covered "How Can You Mend A Broken Heart" in the early 70s,while Rufus and Chaka Khan remade "Jive Talkin" in late 75.

Oh, and Bowie's first hit, Space Oddity, was a deliberate rip-off of the early Bee Gees sound.

Maybe in the U.K but I guess in the USA there are alot of people (especially under 35) only are aware of their disco period. I tell people they were apart of the British invasion and they look shocked.

Weird, as they had great success in the US long before Saturday Night Fever hit.
But let's face it, SNF was immense and very different sounding to their earlier stuff.
People could be forgiven for thinking that they were two different bands as I've had many folk say "THAT'S the Bee Gees?!!"
They often know the songs without realising who it is.

Yeah when I play some of their stuff from the 60's people say they sound like the Beatles. But yes I agree Saturday Night Fever soundtrack was so huge that most people just think Bee gee's (and age to plays a factor)

I've never liked the Bee Gees, maybe it was the disco angle or maybe i just haven't listened close enough. To compare artists of the British invasion or the Beach Boys is an apples and oranges comparison unless you're talking about influence on other musicians and then it's like Bee Gee's who?

I can't remember ANY artist saying that a Bee Gee's album influenced their perspective but I've heard countless artists reference Sgt. Pepper in that regard.


Michael Jackson
Pet Shop Boys
George Michael
Billy Joel
Paul Simon
David Bowie
Brian Wilson
Madonna
Noel Gallagher
Elton John

Just to name a few well respected artists who have named the Bee Gees as an influence.

The list goes on and on.



I think ELO were also influenced by the Bee Gees as well.Their 1979 hit "Shine A Little Love" sounds exactly like a Bee Gees track.And don't laugh at me,but...when I first heard "Mountains" by Prince,I thought that it had a Bee Gees feel to it boxed Something about the horns and Prince's falsetto reminds me of late-70s Bee Gees.

Prince name dropped the Bee Gees many times at the beginning of his career.
And just listen to his early work, clearly influenced to some degree by late 70s Bee Gees stuff.

I'll add to that Islands In The Stream and Woman In Love.
Such beautiful melodies.

Only One Woman is a great track, too.
I hope their own version turns up on one of the remasterd albums.

They actually gave Andy a ton of great songs that they could have kept for themselves:

"I Just Wanna Be Your Everything" (1977)
"An Everlasting Love" (1978)
"Desire" (1980)
"After Dark" (1980)

Yeah, it's class. They should have done it themselves, really.


They actually gave Andy a ton of great songs that they could have kept for themselves:

"I Just Wanna Be Your Everything" (1977)
"An Everlasting Love" (1978)
"Desire" (1980)
"After Dark" (1980)

music


I'm not so keen on An Everlasting Love. I'd have gone for Love Is Thicker Than Water, instead. smile

the reason any act that has any connection to Disco or it's offsprings don't get credit is the "industry" meaning critics is homophobic


falloff I'm sure that's why the Bee Gees aren't more popular...err


You'd be surprised how true that actually is.

Summer Night City was Abba's attempt at writing a Bee Gees song, too.

No, they never influenced anybody, did they. rolleyes
