    • I didn’t know they were on that one…they were everywhere at that time.
      Just by memory…I remember Jive Talking starting it all after their first period of stardom… but I may be wrong.

    • That sounds right- I think that was their switch in format to their disco phase… i think Barry Gibb wrote the Samantha Sang hit– and also the Elliman song… and the hit for brother Andy.. good grief.

    • I can’t remember her having another hit- I think if the Gibbs had picked me out with a song they could have made me at least one hit back in 1978.

    • I liked it and it was good- but i think everyone by 1979 were sick of them- there was certainly a back lash against them after the Spirits Having Flown album and the hits on that album- by 1980 everyone had enough. It wasn’t enough as you said they themselves but brother Andy and then these other obscure artists who they wrote for- and sang back up for.

  1. This is when Saturday Night Live came out. I remember that scene where Travolta is walking down the sidewalk with one of these songs playing and been in teenybopper heaven.

  2. The Bee Gees could do no wrong in 1977-78, and they also wrote “Grease” for the film of the same name. I’m glad you gave Paul Davis’ “I Go Crazy” an A+, because I love that song.

    I’m surprised to see you give ABBA’s song an A, but then, you always keep me guessing as to which pop songs you love or hate. Some people wrote them off as just formula pop, but I always liked their music well enough. After seeing the original “Mamma Mia” musical on stage, however, I finally realized what incredible songwriters the two guys were.
