As cloaked, cult-like figures surround the building, the patients and staff inside start to turn ravenously insane. Trying to protect the survivors, Carter leads them into the depths of the hospital where they discover a gateway to immense evil. Free U. Exit fullscreen. Expected to ship in business days. Over the years, the brothers have had mixed feelings about the song, admitting it brought them tremendous fame but conversely branded them as a disco act, despite a long and varied career before and after.
Several words from Robin Gibb 's Concorde ticket inspired the Gibbs [ clarification needed ] to write the lyrics for "Stayin' Alive". Robin recalls, "The subject matter of 'Stayin' Alive' is actually quite a serious one; It's about survival in the streets of New Yorkand the lyrics actually say that". Barry Gibb also recalls, "People crying out for help. Desperate songs. Those are the ones that become giants. The minute you capture that on record, it's gold.
Everybody struggles against the world, fighting all the bullshit and things that can drag you down. And it really is a victory just to survive.
But when you climb back on top and win bigger than ever before, well that's something everybody reacts to everybody". The track was finished at Criteria Studioswith Maurice Gibb laying down a bass line similar to the guitar riff, Barry Gibb and Alan Kendall on guitar riffs, and Blue Weaver adding synthesizers. The Boneroo Horns parts were added. The band's drummer Dennis Bryon left the recording sessions early due to the death of his mother, and the group first looked for a replacement.
The shortage of qualified drummers in the area prompted the group to try a drum machinebut it did not offer satisfactory results. The group jokingly listed the drummer as "Bernard Lupe" a takeoff on session drummer Bernard Purdie. Lupe became a highly sought-after drummer—until it was discovered that he did not exist. Barry and I listened carefully to find a bar that felt really good. Everyone knows that it's more about feel than accuracy in drum tracks. We chose a bar that felt so good that we ended up using that same loop on 'Stayin' Alive,' and 'More Than a Woman,' and then again on Barbra Streisand's song 'Woman in Love.
Karl spliced the tape and jury rigged it so that it was going over a mic stand and around a plastic reel. At first, we were doing it just as a temporary measure. As we started to lay tracks down to it, we found that it felt really great-very insistent but not machinelike. It had a human feel. By the time we had overdubbed all the parts to the songs and Dennis came back, there was no way we could get rid of the loop. In their work together, Gibb and Galuten had tried playing with a click track as Galuten explained:.
While today's musicians know how to get a good groove with the click, back then, if you used a click track you rarely got a good feel. The loop crossed the boundary giving us music that was in time with a good feel.
If I had been working for a technology company then and knew what I was doing, I would have tried to patent the idea. Nonetheless, it changed a lot of things. That first loop was a watershed event in our life and times. The song was not initially scheduled for release, with " How Deep Is Your Love " selected as lead single, but fans called radio stations and RSO Records requesting the song immediately after seeing trailers for Saturday Night Feverfeaturing the track over the aforementioned introductory scene.
The single was eventually released in mid-December, a month after the album, and moved to the top of the Billboard Hot in the United States in February, where it stayed for four weeks. Soon after, it slid to number two, near the third hit from the album, "Night Fever".
In the United Kingdom, "Stayin' Alive" was not as popular as it was in the United States, but was still a hit, reaching number four. Barry Gibb had a hand in writing all four of these songs, becoming the only person in history to write four successive US number-one singles.
Besides the version that appeared on the soundtrack album in length and the edited 45RPM single for Top 40 radio releasethere was yet another version, from the same recording session but of a slightly different mix, that was distributed on twelve-inch vinyl to club DJs and radio stations that specialised in airing longer versions of hit songs.
This "Special Disco Version" featured all the same parts as the album version but had a horn rhythm section interjected twice. Although twelve-inch disco mixes were usually sped up, this version was slowed down slightly. It is the longest version of "Stayin' Alive" ever made, and faded at Robert Stigwood thought he would prefer the songs from different genders and directed the group to cut the ballad, while Elliman cut "If I Can't Have You" with her usual producer Freddie Perren.
Satisfied with this switch, Elliman's interpretation made the soundtrack, while the Bee Gees' version was relegated to the B-side of the "Stayin' Alive" single. The brothers' version has since appeared on CD in hits compilations. George Martin commented about this song saying: "The great thing about 'Stayin' Alive' is that it had a great guitar hook to start with which set up the theme, that pulsating beat.
It's no coincidence, by the way, that the disco beat of beats per minute coincides the heartbeat of your heart when you're excited. This was a key thing which underlined the whole tune, and when the vocals came in, the vocals were so designed that they pushed that beat further".
Billboard Magazine reviewed the single calling it one of the Bee Gees best songs and an "almost irresistible dance tune.
