The Bee Gees may not have realized it in 1980 but their run on the charts was over as The Bee Gees. But songs they wrote for other artists would continue to chart -and ‘Woman In Love’ by Babs Streisand is a great example- I am shocked to see the number of countries all over the world where it went to #1 on the charts. Barry Gibb had written the song with Streisand in mind. It would become her 5th #1 hit- and to date her final #1.
