On this day in music history: March 24, 1979 - “Tragedy” by the Bee Gees hits #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for 2 weeks. Written by Barry, Robin, and Maurice Gibb it is the eighth US chart topper for the three brothers from the Isle Of Man, UK. Recorded at Criteria Studios in Miami, FL in the Spring of 1978, the song is written during a particularly prolific period for the brothers Gibb. “Tragedy” is written in mid 1977 while the Bee Gees are filming “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” during which time they also write “Too Much Heaven” and “Shadow Dancing”. The songs’ climactic explosion sound effects are created by the engineer recording several overdubs of Barry Gibb cupping his hands over the microphone while making the explosion sound with his mouth, combined with keyboardist Blue Weaver playing random notes on the bottom end of the piano with the sounds being heavy processed in the mix. Issued as a single in late January of 1979,  prior to the release of their first post “Saturday Night Fever” album “Spirits Having Flown”, it is another immediate hit. Entering the Hot 100 at #29 on February 10, 1979, it will streak to the top of the chart six weeks later. “Tragedy” is certified Platinum in the US by the RIAA.

On this day in music history: March 18, 1978 - “Night Fever” by the Bee Gees hits #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for 8 weeks, also peaking at #8 on the R&B singles chart on the same date. Written by Barry, Robin, & Maurice Gibb, it is the sixth US chart topper for the British born family trio. Written for the film “Saturday Night Fever”, the brothers will write and record the track at the Château d’Hérouville outside of Paris, France in the Spring of 1977. Released in late January of 1978, heavy airplay as an album cut will force RSO Records to rush release the song as a single while the soundtrack albums’ second single “Stayin’ Alive” is still climbing the charts. Like its two predecessors, “Night Fever” will be another immediate smash. Entering the Hot 100 at #76 on February 4, 1978 (on the same day that their previous single “Stayin’ Alive” hits number one), it will rocket to the top six weeks later. The week it tops the pop singles chart, it will make further history as Barry Gibb is also the co-writer and producer of the songs in the #2, #3, and #5 spots on the chart which are the Bee Gees’ own “Stayin’ Alive”, Samantha Sang’s “Emotion”, and Andy Gibb’s “(Love Is) Thicker Than Water”. One week later on March 25, 1978, Yvonne Elliman’s “If I Can’t Have You” also co-written by Barry Gibb, will enter the top ten, increasing the number to five singles in the Billboard pop top ten at once. “Night Fever” will be certified Platinum in the US by the RIAA, making it the Bee Gees third consecutive single to sell over two million copies in the US. ”Night Fever” will be certified Platinum in the US by the RIAA, making it the Bee Gees third consecutive single to sell over two million copies in the US.

Tara Lipinski and Johnny Weir get as much attention as the skaters. Johnny was wearing leather pants with matching boots.

NPR, you should go for the unexpected and interview their partner in crime, Terry Gannon.
