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




Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibb had the # 1 song in the US back in August 1971.


In fact, it was # 1 for several weeks.


It was also their first # 1 in the US!


They had quite a few more in the 1970's!


Today, we remember one of the Gibbs' most beautiful songs.


It was written by Barry and Robin. Maurice played piano & background vocals:


"I can think of younger days when living for my life Was everything a man could want to do.
I could never see tomorrow, but I was never told about the sorrow.
And how can you mend a broken heart? How can you stop the rain from falling down?
How can you stop the sun from shining? What makes the world go round?
How can you mend a this broken man? How can a loser ever win?
Please help me mend my broken heart and let me live again.
I can still feel the breeze that rustles through the trees And misty memories of days gone by
We could never see tomorrow, no one said a word about the sorrow.
And how can you mend a broken heart? How can you stop the rain from falling down?
How can you stop the sun from shining? What makes the world go round?
How can you mend this broken man? How can a loser ever win?
Please help me mend my broken heart and let me live again."

P.S. Here is a little Bee Gees' trivia.

In the US, "Country Woman" was released as the B-side. It was rare lead vocal by the late Maurice Gibb, who died in 2003.

For years, we enjoyed this bouncy tune on our old vinyl 45-rpm single.

It was finally released in the "Tales from The Brothers Gibb" box set!

This video has a lot of Maurice's pictures, including several of Andy Gibb and Lulu!
