Love Me (Bee Gees song)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

"Love Me"
Song by Bee Gees
from the album Children of the World
ReleasedSeptember 1976
Recorded30 March 1976 (Criteria Studios)
25 April 1976 (Le Studio)
GenreR&B, soul
Songwriter(s)Barry Gibb, Robin Gibb
Producer(s)Barry Gibb, Robin Gibb, Maurice Gibb, Albhy Galuten, Karl Richardson

"Love Me" is a song recorded by the Bee Gees, released on the 1976 album Children of the World. It was also included on the compilation albums Bee Gees Greatest and Love from the Bee Gees, which was released only in the UK.[1]


It was written by Barry and Robin Gibb featuring Robin on lead with his vibrato (with Barry on the middle eight evidenced on the outro). This makes this song a curio among the group's latterday tracks, as during the mid and late 1970s, Barry sang most of the group's leads. Robin sings a falsetto lead on the group's 1979 song "Living Together" on the album Spirits Having Flown.[2] He also sang falsetto during the chorus of his solo song "Remedy" from the 1985 album Walls Have Eyes.[3]

With Robin, Barry also sang the lead on the track's middle-eight.

Never even try to see things her way/It's hard on a woman when love ain't no love at all/And when she walks away, and she probably will/You're gonna be sorry, begging her, please.

Recording began on March 30, 1976 in Criteria Studios, Miami and finished on April 25 in Le Studio, Quebec, Canada same day as "I Think I'm Losing You" (unreleased).[4]
