Bee Gees 1st Top Ten Hit

Bee Gees 1st Top Ten Hit

Do you know which great Bee Gees song was their first top ten hit in the USA?  I was surprised when I was reminded this morning that it was “Gotta Get A Message To You” which hit #8 on the Hot 100 in 1968.  The song has some strange lyrics, dealing with a man awaiting execution in prison for murder, begging a priest to get a message to his wife.

But the song has a great hook, outstanding harmonies, and deserves a better fate than to sit in the vault of forgotten oldies.
