This was The Bee Gees 4th consecutive #1 in a row- they would end up having 6 in a row before the streak ended. This single was the bands contribution to the “Music For UNICEF” fund. A productive day for The Bee Gees- on an afternoon off from filming the dumpster fire known as Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band- they wrote “Tragedy”, “Too Much Heaven” and in the evening wrote “Shadow Dancing” for brother Andy. All went to #1. Robin Gibb would later say “Too Much Heaven” was one of his favorite Bee Gee tracks.
