ON SONGS Bee Gees - Nights on Broadway
I've been a big fan of the Bee Gees and of Barry Gibb's songwriting since I was a kid listening to AM radio growing up in NYC. I was enamored of the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack and remember even taking my lp to school (P.S. 152 in uptown Manhattan) to show it to my friends. But there is so much depth to the Bee Gees catalog and I, by no means have really dug into it. Nevertheless, I have a favorite Bee Gees song that predates the Fever soundtrack.
"Nights on Broadway" is an amazing song from it's arrangement, the harmonies, the hooks. It starts with that great funky drum intro and what appears to be a synth bass before the vocals come in building up to that glorious chorus.
This is the tune that Jimmy Fallon parodied for his intro to the Barry Gibb Show sketch on SNL.
