August 1971: Remembering “How can you mend a broken heart” by The Bee Gees!

leave a comment »

 

The Bee Gees (Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibb) had the # 1 song in the US back in August 1971.

In fact, “How can you mend a broken heart” was # 1 for several weeks.  It turned into one of the most favorite love ballads in pop history.

It was also their first # 1 in the US and followed “Lonely days“, another big hit earlier in the year.

As we know, The Bee Gees had quite a few more hit records in the 1970’s!  

They dominated the radio and charts with songs from the soundtrack of “Saturday night fever” and several more the LP’s like “Main course“, “Children of the world” & “Spirits having flown“.    

They were clearly the band of the late 1970’s, i.e. who else had eight # 1 songs from 1975-79.

Today, we remember one of the Gibbs’ most beautiful love songs from the summer of 1971.    

P.S.   Real and devout fans may remember the B-side, a Maurice Gibb song and solo called “Country woman“.
