Dutch release of Beegees -coversong by The Kik - Ik doe wat ik wil ( All by Myself)

 Ik Doe Wat Ik Wil

All by myself

De enige geleende song van de plaat, origineel door The BeeGees, maar dan wel uit hun oertijd.
Dave: "Ik vond het een heel goed nummertje, maar de opname die ik ervan had klonk eigenlijk nergens naar. Het heet All By Myself en werd door ze opgenomen toen ze een jaar of veertien waren, nog voor Spicks & Specks. The BeeGees zijn een soort kameleons, die zich aanpassen aan wat hip is. Nummers schrijven konden ze wel, en het arrangement jatten ze dan van een ander. Van The Everly Brothers bijvoorbeeld, of van The Who. Dit nummer is geschreven door Maurice Gibb


The only borrowed song of the album, originally by The Bee Gees, but only from their prehistoric times.
Dave: "I thought it was a really good song number, but the recording I had it actually sounded lame It's called All By Myself, and was recognized by them when they were fourteen years old, before Spicks & Specks The Bee Gees are.. a kind of chameleons, which adapt to what is hip. Writing songs they could do, and the arrangement steal them from another. From The Everly Brothers for example, or The Who. This song was written by Maurice Gibb

“New York Mining Disaster 1941 (Have You Seen My Wife, Mr. Jones)”
Written by Barry and Robin Gibb (1967)
Performed by Bee Gees

The MusicWhen the Bee Gees debut US single was released in April 1967, a lot of people thought it was The Beatles masquerading as another band. Even the name Bee Gees was read as code for “Beatles Group.” But within a year, brothers Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibb established themselves not only as hit makers in their own right, but as chart rivals to the Fabs. “New York Mining Disaster 1941,” the first of thirty-some hits, is one of those rare pop songs in which the title never appears in the lyrics. Most people still refer to it by its subtitle “Have you seen my wife, Mr. Jones.” Inspired by the Aberfan mining disas…

Meaning of Songs

THE MEANING OF SONGSCollaborator:Stephan Koenig ALONE (1997) BARRY GIBB: What the song's really about is that little child inside. It's that abstract feeling we all have that no matter how close or how many relatives we have or how many people around us we love, we still feel alone. There's an aloneness about all of us. That "How do I, why is it always end up alone?" Well, I'm not alone, but I might feel alone, that no one really thinks the way I do. I guess that's because everybody's unique in their own way. We all do feel the same way about most things, but why is it that nobody feels the same way I do about everything? So you're alone. You have that feeling sometimes.

MAURICE GIBB: Always with experimentation in mind, this was a fun time. The memories of this session will always be remembered. I loved the tuba and reverse cymbal effect.
