Have You Heard The Word

“Have You Heard The Word” used to appear—frequently—on Beatles bootlegs as a ‘long lost’ Beatles recording. In fact the song was recorded by Bee Gees singer Maurice Gibb, who, along with some Aussie mates, gathered round the studio mics and recorded, apparently, a single take of the song, featuring Gibb's rather convincing John Lennon impersonation.

"Another One Bites the Dust" also works, but is counterintuitive.

Several years ago, the American Heart Association was looking for a song with 100 beats per minute to help instruct people in Hands-Only CPR. They found their song in the Bee Gees' "Stayin' Alive". Here is "Community" star (and licensed M.D.) Ken Jeong to show you how its done (Bonus Behind-the-scenes video here).

Less Than The Sum Of Its Parts

How to make the biggest hit of all time: Step 1: Get the most successful female act of the 1960s, the Queen of Motown, to write and sing lead. Step 2: Get the biggest selling band of the 1970s, the Kings of Disco, to produce and sing backup. Step 3: Get the biggest selling musical artist of the 1980s, the King of Pop, to co-write the song and share vocals. Step 4: Profit?

You only kiss the missus on the lips.

Vinnie Jones + Bee Gees + a good cause = YouTube goodness (previously)

Stayin' Alive. Literally.

The Bee Gees' Stayin' Alive can be used as a training tool for CPR, because it has a near-perfect rhythm for timing compressions, it's well-known and it has a tendency to get stuck in your head. Unfortunately, another song useful for training, with a similar rhythm, isn't quite so uplifting.

Burning Ring of Fire.

The house of Johnny Cash is no more. Earlier today a fire was sparked amid fumes of a wood preservative and the structure was destroyed. New owner/restorer Barry Gibb unsure how to be Mr. Natural now that the Nature House is gone. Warning: Horribly written Tennessean piece.

Do you know Jack?

At age 80, Oliver "Busta Jack" Jackson's cuttin' and scratchin' has more to do with gas and dry skin, than his turntable grooves. Stayin Alive was a big hit for the Bee Gees, but for Chicago's newest rap star, it's a mission. If you think it's because Busta Jack has a violent rivalry with gangsta's on the coast, well, you don't know Jack. Busta Jack is the world's oldest rap star, and the biggest challenge about stayin' alive... Meet Busta Jack.
