Music Video of the Day: Jive Talkin’ by The Bee Gees (1975, dir by ????)


Yes, everyone, I am still in a 70s-type of mood.  I imagine this will be the case for the rest of January.  Once February comes around, I’ll probably be in a Canadian mood so get ready for a lot of songs off of the Degrassi soundtrack.

Anyway, this video is for Jive Talkin’, which was I guess one of the Bee Gees’s earliest disco songs.  (Apparently, they were originally a non-disco band, which I just can’t imagine what that was like.  Yes, I know that it would be very easy for me to listen to their non-disco music.  That’s not the point.  The 70s are all about disco and dancing.  The 70s didn’t need any folk rock.)  Jive Talkin’ is one of those songs that feels like it should have been written for the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack but it actually came out two years before that film appeared in theaters.  That said, it does appear in Saturday Night Fever.  Unfortunately, the song did not appear in Stayin’ Alive.  That’s a shame since that film was all about jive and I think Frank Stallone could have done wonders with it.

Enjoy!

It’s just your jive talkin’
You’re telling me lies, yeah
Jive talkin’
You wear a disguise
Jive talkin’
So misunderstood, yeah
Jive talkin’

Just isn’t a crime
And if there’s somebody
