220px-Album_Main_Course#13 – Bee Gees – “Nights on Broadway” – (1975)

The Bee Gees dominated the charts in the late 1970s. But their mid-70s stuff wasn’t quite as “guaranteed-#1” as the later stuff. Actually, 1975’s Main Course was a sort of comeback album for the Brothers Gibb, who hadn’t scored back-to-back top 10 hits since 1968. It’s a nice song because it doesn’t fall into the disco trap that their later music would. The vocals are Gibb-fantastic in their own special quivering way and the music is funky. This song also was the basis for the “Barry Gibb Talkshow” on SNL.
