Thanks for the music, Barry

Listening to my precious vinyl record of Saturday Night Fever, which I bought in 1977 after seeing the movie, I am reminded that The Bee Gees were indeed “songwriters before anything else”; lyricists with profound insight, understanding and empathy. Their words- “we can try to understand” and “we’re living in a world of fools”, among others, might just as well have been written today, still poignantly resonating in my psyche more than 40 years later.
