Islands in the Stream

"So they were childish and childlike. Forgive them. They wrote a dozen of the finest songs of the twentieth century. The Bee Gees were children of the world."


"This airtight upbringing informed their insularity, their prickly, defensive behavior, and many of their deeply strange early recordings: songs like 'Holiday' (no. 11, ’67) and 'I Started a Joke' (no. 6, ’68) suggest they were beamed down from another planet, aliens who had been given tiny scraps of information about what pop music was all about and were bravely trying to piece it together."

Everyone assumes that I would naturally sing Steely Dan songs at karaoke, but the few songs available to my (incredibly limited) vocal range basically consist of "I Started a Joke," Barry/Barbara's "Guilty,"  & "Fanny."  (Also James Blunt's "You're Beautiful," about which the less said the better)
