Song Lyric Sunday_new

Song Lyric Sunday was created by Helen Vahdati from This Thing Called Life One Word at a Time and author Jim Adams from A Unique Title For Me is our current guest host. For complete rules or to join in the fun, click here.

The theme for Song Lyric Sunday this week is Arms/Elbows/Knees/Legs.


Always glad to feature this group, even if it’s only because of one word! 😀

Before they ruled the disco music era, Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibb had success with pop ballads like Love So Right, from their 1976 album, Children of the World.

Love So Right reached number three on the Billboard Hot 100, number fourteen on the Adult Contemporary chart and number thirty-seven on the Black Singles .



    • Love So Right was the second consecutive Bee Gees single (following You Should Be Dancing) to feature Barry Gibb’s falsetto exclusively for lead vocals.
    • Barry later stated that the song’s R&B influence was inspired by the group “trying to be The Delfonics.”
    • The Bee Gees have sold more than 120 million records worldwide and are the third most successful band in Billboard charts history after The Beatles and The Supremes.
    • In addition to being a successful band, the Bee Gees were also highly sought after songwriters and producers. More than 2500 artists have recorded their music.
    • During a nine-month period beginning in the Christmas season of 1977, seven songs written by the brothers held the No. 1 position on the US charts for 27 of 37 consecutive weeks: three of their own releases, two for brother Andy Gibb, the Yvonne Elliman single, and Grease, performed by Frankie Valli.
    • In March 1978, the Bee Gees held the top two positions on the US charts with Night Fever and Stayin’ Alive, the first time this had happened since the Beatles.
    • All three brothers (including Maurice, posthumously) were invested as Commanders of the Order of the British Empire in December 2001 with the ceremony taking place at Buckingham Palace on 27 May 2004.
    • On June 27,  2018, Barry Gibb, the last surviving member of the Bee Gees, was knighted by Prince Charles after being named on the Queen’s New Years Honours List.
    • In 1958, performing as Wee Johnny Hayes and the Blue Cats, the brothers had their named changed by disc jockey Bill Gates and promoter Bill Goode to the BGs (later changed to “Bee Gees”) after his, Goode’s and Barry Gibb’s initials. The name was not specifically a reference to “Brothers Gibb”, despite popular belief.

In the video, Love So Right plays over a compilation of appearances and performances by the brothers.

As a bonus, I included the video from the brothers’ 1999 Sydney, Australia concert for bookmarking purposes. If you’re a fan like me, you’ll enjoy streaming the hour and twenty-four minute show through your big screen. It’s full of pre and post disco music, with a wonderful tribute to younger brother, Andy, who died in 1988. It’s not the Gibb Brothers last performance together–before Maurice’s passing in 2003 and Robin’s in 2012–but it’s a fun, energetic concert by the brothers, who by that point, had been performing together for forty years.

Love So Right

by the Bee Gees

Songwriters: Barry Gibb / Maurice Ernest Gibb / Robin Hugh Gibb
She came on like the night and she held on tight
And the world was right when she made love to me
We were free
She moved in like a friend started loving me
And I thought I’d found my heaven in her arms
But the morning when I woke up
I was here and she was gone
Now I’m hanging on
Maybe you can tell me how a love so right can turn out to be so wrong
Where did she go when I need her close to me
And the perfect story ended at the start
I thought you came forever and you came to break my heart
Now I’m hanging on, on the chance that you’ll come back to me
How a love so right can turn out to be so wrong, oh my darling
How a love so right can turn out to be so wrong, oh my darling
I could take it in my stride
Start living for the moment
Maybe half the things we sought were never there
Simply open up our eyes and break it down to size
It isn’t really fair
How a love so right can turn out to be so wrong, oh my darling
How a love so right can turn out to be so wrong, oh my darling
How a love so right can turn out to be so wrong, oh my darling
