Behind The Track: “Emotion”

It’s just “Emotion” that’s taking over.

In 1977, Barry and Robin wrote “Emotion” for Australian singer Samantha Sang, and the song reached number three on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart in 1978. The Bee Gees ended up recording their own version of the song in 1994 for an album called Love Songs, which was never released. The song was eventually included on the 2001 compilation Their Greatest Hits: The Record, however, and was covered by Destiny’s Child that same year. The girl group’s rendition ultimately became an international hit, reaching the top ten on the US Hot 100 chart, and top five on the UK Singles Chart.
