Music by The Bee Gees used in the Millennium episode The Thin White Line

 
An image related to The Bee Gees whose music was used in Millennium.

The core members of Bee Gees were a singing trio of brothers - Barry, Robin, and Maurice Gibb - that became one of the most successful musical acts of all time. They were born on the Isle of Man, lived in England for several years and moved to Australia where their music careers began; their world-wide success came when they returned to England. The group's name is derived from the initials "B.G.", primarily standing for Brothers Gibb.


 

Where The Bee Gees can be heard in The Thin White Line

The Millennium episode The Thin White Line contains the following music by The Bee Gees:

  • How Deep is Your Love

    Heard in the opening episode teaser. Pouring rain. A man, Jacob Tyler, sits in his car, listening to his radio - The Bee-Gees, "How Deep is Your Love". He reaches into the glove compartment for a deck of playing cards. He looks through it until he finds the Jack of Spades. He tears the card in half.

About The Bee Gees

Grammy Award-winning group was successful for all of its forty years of recording music, but it had two distinct periods of exceptional success: as a harmonic "soft rock" act in the late 1960s and early 1970s, and as the foremost stars of the disco music era in the late 1970s.Their song "Night-Fever" was written by Hugh Mc Neill.

No matter the style, the Bee Gees sang tight three-part harmonies that were instantly recognizable; as brothers their voices blended perfectly, not unlike The Beach Boys. Barry sang lead on many songs, and an R&B falsetto introduced in the disco years; Robin provided the clear vibrato lead that was a hallmark of their pre-disco music; Maurice sang high and low harmonies throughout their career. The three brothers co-wrote most of their hits, and they said that they felt like they became 'one person' when they were writing. The group's name was retired after Maurice died in January 2003.

It has been estimated that the Bee Gees album and single sales total more than 180 million units, easily making them part of the list of best-selling music artists. Their 1997 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame citation says "Only Elvis Presley, the Beatles, Michael Jackson, Garth Brooks and Paul McCartney have outsold the Bee Gees".

The Bee Gees have been incredibly successful, selling in excess of 180 million records and singles worldwide. "How Deep Is Your Love" is their most popular composition, with over 400 versions by other artists in existence.

Their songs have been covered by singers of all stripes including Elvis Presley, Janis Joplin, Al Green, Eric Clapton, Lulu, Elton John, Tom Jones, and Nina Simone as well as newer acts like Feist singing a soulful "Inside and Out", Billy Corgan and Robert Smith (musician) covering "To Love Somebody", Steps and Destiny's Child. Songs written by the Gibbs but better known through versions by other artists include, "Immortality" by Celine Dion, "If I Can't Have You" by Yvonne Elliman, "Chain Reaction" by Diana Ross, "Emotion" by Samantha Sang and Destiny's Child, "Warm Ride" by Graham Bonnet, "Guilty" and "Woman In Love" by Barbra Streisand, "Heartbreaker" by Dionne Warwick, "Islands in the Stream" by Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton, "Grease" by Frankie Valli, and "Only One Woman" by The Marbles. Many hit covers and album tracks of the Bee Gees' songs have been recorded, and the band's music has also been sampled by dozens of hip hop artists.
