On this day in music history: July 30, 1977 - “I Just Want To Be Your Everything” by Andy Gibb hits #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for 4 weeks (non-consecutive), also peaking at #19 on the R&B singles chart on the same date. Written and co-produced by Barry Gibb, it is the debut and first chart topping single for the then nineteen year old younger brother of the Bee Gees. Gibb comes up with song while vacationing on manager/label boss Robert Stigwood’s estate in Bermuda. During that same period, Barry and Andy also write “(Love Is) Thicker Than Water” together, which is initially considered to for the younger Gibb brothers debut release. At the last minute they change their minds and issue “I Just Want To Be Your Everything” instead. Released in late March 1977, the single enters the Hot 100 at #88 on April 23, 1977. Making a slow but steady ascent up the chart, it climbs to the top of the chart fourteen weeks later. “I Just Want To Be Your Everything” spends three weeks at the top, and fall as low as #3 (bowing to The Emotions’ “Best Of My Love”) then after four weeks regains the number one spot on the charts for one more week. “Everything” is the first of three consecutive number one singles Andy Gibb scores on the Hot 100 over the next eleven months. “I Just Want To Be Your Everything” is certified Gold in the US by the RIAA.
…Been in the studio the last couple of weeks finishing up songs with @casoncooley. It has felt great working with him so far! I’m feeling good about these songs. In the meantime, Here’s a throwback photo to when we went to Pula, Croatia.👌🏼 | full post here
I’ve been told I’m evil Born into this world of sin From the day I left my mother’s womb And I’ve been told that I’ve fallen That my nature is untrue, they said You need our God’s forgiveness son or You’ll burn in hell with everyone, oh
I kindly asked them why I may have caught them by surprise but I know they’ll think of something I know they’ll think of something They always think of something They always think of something
