Bee gees you should be dancing - BEE GEES - You Should Be Dancing - YouTube


By the mid-'70s, the Bee Gees had successfully completed the transition from orchestral pop to dance-friendly white soul with the highly successful Main Course album. Encouraged by their success, they pushed further into their new style on Children of the World and in the process created a smash hit single with "You Should Be Dancing." This song represents the poppier side of disco at its most infectiously catchy. The lyrics are straightforward dance-music fodder that pay tribute to the charms of a disco-crazed woman ("My baby moves at midnight/Goes right on to the dawn") on the verses and urges the listener to hit the dancefloor on the chorus: "What you doin' on your back?/You should be dancing." The melody mirrors the excitement of the lyrics by contrasting fast-paced staccato verse melodies with a funkier, more relaxed chorus. The song's excited feel is crystallized by a multi-layered arrangement on the Bee Gees' recording: congas and other percussion layer the song's central throbbing drumbeat, dramatic waves of synthesizer swoop in and out of the mix, and the Bee Gees' falsetto vocals stand tall above it all. "You Should Be Dancing" also boasts a stellar, surprisingly hard-rocking guitar solo midway through, an element one might not expect in a dance tune. The resulting recording blended all the thrills of good up-tempo disco with strong pop hooks and made "You Should Be Dancing" an international hit, including a number one ranking on the American charts.
