1. Stayin' Alive

One of the Bee Gees' signature songs, Stayin Alive was written for the movie Saturday Night Fever, which starred John Travolta.

It was released as the second single from the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack in January 1977, and climbed the charts to hit the number one spot on the Billboard Hot 100 the week of 4 February 1978, remaining there for four weeks.

2. How Deep Is Your Love

Another hit written for the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack. It was released as a single in September 1977. In the United States, it topped the Billboard Hot 100 on 24 December 1977, becoming the first of six consecutive US number-one hits and stayed in the Top 10 for a then-record 17 weeks.

The song was also covered by Take That for their 1996 Greatest Hits album, reaching number-one on the UK Singles Chart for three weeks.

3. I've Got To Get A Message To You

After emigrating to Australia with their parents, the Gibb brothers returned to England in the mid-1960s to further their singing careers. They reached the Top Ten with I've Gotta Get a Message to You in 1968 but split briefly after the relative failure of their concept album Odessa in 1969.

Following the sad death of his twin brother Maurice in 2003, Robin released Magnet, his first solo album for fifteen years. To coincide with the release of Magnet, Robin Gibb took to the road accompanied by the Frankfurt Neue Philharmonic Orchestra - watch this beautiful performance here:

4. Jive Talkin'

A song by the Bee Gees, which hit number one on the Billboard Hot 100 and reached the top-five on the UK singles chart in the summer of 1975. Largely recognised as the group's "comeback" song, it was their first US top ten hit since How Can You Mend a Broken Heart in 1971.

5. I Started A Joke

This sing was mostly written and performed by Robin Gibb. It was released in 1968 on their album Idea, which was released in September of that year.
