Today I am posting a video from the Mythology Tour concert in Philadelphia. Some fans are unhappy with “all the fan singing in the background” but this is exactly why I am posting this. It goes to show the power of a great song when thousands of people are singing along with Barry. Notice how he is listening to the fans as they sing with him. It is endearing, charming and truly touching to know that a song that was written when Barry was really a child himself can have such an effect on fans decades later. The song is lovely in its simplicity and imagery. As I watched the fans around me and listened to them, i knew I couldn’t “drown out” the voices, and really didn’t want to do so. The smiles were everywhere, and I could see the memories flooding back to the audience members as they sang. A great piece of music is just that……a GREAT piece of music……powerful and memorable…and all thanks to the genius of Barry Gibb.
