...and then there was one.

Say what you want, but you blast those 70's disco tunes by the brothers Gibb.

At one point in 1978, Barry Gibb had written 8 of the top 14 songs (and 3 of the top 5) on the Billboard charts. These included songs by the Bee Gees, Andy Gibb, Franky Valli ("Grease"), and Jonn Travolta & Olivia Newton John.

Least he came out of the coma and was able to say good bye to his loved ones before leaving us forever.

Thank you for the music you gave us. It helped to define the '70s. :disco:

RIP Robin. <3

Robin Gibb's Last Act: A Classical Requiem for the Titanic

One of the Bee Gees legend's final songs, 'Don't Cry Alone,' premiered just a month before he died during a performance by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra




Bee Gees legend Robin Gibb died May 20 at the age of 62, and he’ll be forever remembered for the disco hits he performed with that group. But his final major creation was markedly different. To commemorate the centennial of the tragic sinking of the Titanic on April 15, 1912, Gibb and his son R.J. Gibb composed an album of classical music: The Titanic Requiem. The piece was their first classical work together and was performed last month by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra along with the RSVP Voices choir. As is appropriate for an album commemorating a tragedy, the music is hauntingly beautiful, but no song more affecting or poignant than ‘Don’t Cry Alone’, which featured Robin Gibb as lead vocalist.

On April 10th, the Titanic Requiem premiered at the Westminster Central Hall in London. Co-composer R. J. Gibb introduced the performance, but his father Robin was too sick to attend. To honor Robin in his absence, a recording of the song Don’t Cry Alone was played with lights dimmed and a silent orchestra as the audience listened to the heart-felt lyrics: “I’ll be there for you forever. Don’t you ever cry.” As the song finished the audience rose to give a standing ovation.
