Three distinct hits from the snare drum and one shining spotlight reveal ‘The Bee Gees.’ The superstar brothers stand on a dark stage surrounded by bright blue and white lights.
As they stand in front of microphones wearing suits and collared shirts, Andy and Maurice play guitar, and Robin sings with them. The band behind them includes a tambourine player, a piano, and a drummer.
They stand in front of a large crowd that waves their hands and cheers for the Bee Gees every time they end a verse or a chorus. Background singers stand further back and sway to the beat of the song.
The Bee Gees sing the romantic lyrics, “Tell you someday baby, you and I should be one, one. Do it always, brighter than the eye can see. We hide the sun.”
The lights above them start to flash around and move through the entire stage, while yellow lights on stage flash during the song’s chorus. There is an instrumental breakdown right before the last chorus, and the band builds up to the big finish, and they sing the final chorus as the crowd explodes with applause.
The Bee Gees are also known as ‘The Disco Kings,’ ‘Britain’s First Family of Harmony,’ and ‘The Kings of Dance Music.’ The song ‘One’ returned the group to American radio and became their biggest ‘80s hit in the United States.
The song peaked at number seven on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in September 1989 and remained in the Top 40 for ten weeks. The Gibbs formed their band in 1958, but their success continued for decades.
