A week ago I was encouraged by the news of the improved health of singer/songwriter Robin Gibb. Then again, we all know cancer has it’s own agenda and Robin lost his battle yesterday. There are many songs I could mention that highlight Robin’s voice but the one that always makes me smile is his cover of the Beatles “Oh, Darling!” from the 1978 movie Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.
Along with big brother Barry, Robin penned the words to dozens of songs, such as “How Can You Mend a Broken Heart?” My heart is a little broken today and I have a feeling this question will continue to go unanswered.
