  1. Not a bad song. It was bookended by two Bee Gees songs – “How Deep Is Your Love” and “Stayin’ Alive”, which was itself followed by Andy Gibb’s “Love Is Thicker Than Water”, the Bee Gees “Night Fever” and another Bee Gees-written song “If I Can’t Have You”, sung by Yvonne Elliman. The Bee Gees ruled the charts in 1978 like the Beatles did in 1964.
