Anyone who was alive during the 1970s probably remembers the Disco era, and if you remember disco, you probably remember the Bee Gees because they were probably the hottest disco group. The Bee Gees is an English group that sang many smash hits, most of which they wrote, in the UK, Australia, and the US. This is one of the hits, Stayin’ Alive, performed by Robin Gibb, Barry Gibb, and Maurice Gibb (pictured left to right.) They actually started performing in the 1950s, and the band name at the time was “The Rattlesnakes”. Unfortunately, Maurice died in 2003 and Robin died of cancer in 2012, leaving only Barry.
In this song video, Barry is singing in a falsetto voice. His modal voice is tenor, but using falsetto, he is able to push his voice considerably higher, though he isn’t forcing his voice.
