Fanny, Be Tender With My Love
Okay. Laugh at me if you want to, but the Bee Gees were a great pop group! Yeah, they wore funny lookin' clothes and had weird hair cuts, but they were masters at crafting catchy tunes. I particularly like this song because it was somewhat transitional for them. It was before Saturday Night Fever and their intense disco era. They were moving from folk music into a much more soulful sound. The high falsetto vocals at the end are reminiscent of 70's soul groups like the Chi-lites. Can you dig it?
