The Bee Gees are more readily known for their disco days; Jive Talking, Staying Alive, upbeat tunes and dancing. Some of us remember them first as pop singers with more folksy lyrics and, to be honest, it took a bit of time to get used to their new sound in the seventies. One of the first songs I remember hearing from the Bee Gees was First of May. I was dating a tall, handsome, art major at the time and he thought I might like to hear it.
I dated that tall, handsome art major for a long time. We married in May. May 20, to be exact. The day Robin Gibb died.
I thought some of you might remember First of May, and others might appreciate another musical side of the Brothers Gibb.
