My current craze

Grand Illusion

Climb a mountain
Sail an ocean
Go around the world a million times
Here in the valley of the blind the one-eyed man is king
Be a hero
Lead or follow
What you choose to believe is a state-of-mind
But here in the valley of the blind the one-eyed man is king
When it comes down to you
The star you follow
May be gone
When it comes down to you
All the power and the glory
All the fire and the fury
Will not take you far (will not take you long)
It’s got to be your own life
Show no night or day
Your face may turn in sorrow
While the others watch
The grand illusion
You may lose your mind
And someone standing with you
While you endure the slings and arrows
And she will be your grand illusion
Your grand illusion
In the moonlight
Be an angel
Fly to heaven
All we need is a little bit of peace of mind
Here in the valley of the blind the one-eyed man is king
But when it comes down to you
The star you follow may be gone
When it comes down to you
All the power and the glory
All the fire and the fury
Will not take you far (will not take you long)
It’s got to be your own life
Show no night or day
Your face may turn in sorrow
While the others watch
The grand illusion
You may lose your mind
And someone standing with you
While you endure the slings and arrows
And she will be your grand illusion
Your grand illusion
In the moonlight ..

And here it is: you can sing along, now ..

See Barry’s gorgeous eldest son, Steven ? – hipster beard, in one version wearing specs but not in the other .. I feel that the second son, Ashley, might be in there too. Not at all sure. All I do know is that as long as there’s music there will be the Gibb name.

    • Means nowt to me. :D Just the same – except for the fact that I can’t inspect any properties.
      My neighbours on this floor are doing their best to kill me with kindness: Jules brought me a slice of her home-made chocolate cake with scattered strawberries, today. I must somehow let Joan know she’s falling behind ! [grin]

  1. I loved this video, M-R. I have always loved the Bee Gees and will always play their recordings. This last year we watched an incredible documentary on the brothers and as the soul survivor, Barry had a very prominent role. I am so glad to see him performing and how wonderful that his sons have talent, too. I hope they keep the family legacy going!

  2. Barry must be one of the best composers around. His body of work is greater than any of the “Old” greats – you know, Cole Porter, Irving Berlin, etc. – but though it’s always been contemporary it’s meaningful; he’s never written song to which the lyrics are rubbish, you know ? And the music is .. MUSIC. He’s one of the greatest, imnsho.
