Night and day; there's a burning down inside of me



It was Mr Barry Gibb's 70th birthday yesterday. Among the myriad songs for which he and his late brothers Robin and Maurice were responsible was their 1979 mega-hit Tragedy...

...and that was given a memorable makeover in the 90s by the campest of all "manufactured pop acts" of that era - Steps!

So, get ready to do all the right moves - and Thank Disco It's Friday!


And in case anyone is in any doubt as to how to do that dance, here are some handy instructions ("step-by-step", geddit?):


1.
Put your hands beside your ears in a "Tragedy" pose. Look shocked!

2.
Raise your right arm.

3.
Raise your left arm to join it!

4.
Clasp both your hands to your heart in a protective manner.

5.
Stretch both arms out in front of you with your palms facing up.

6.
Put your arms up to your head as in Step 1 and take a step to your right.

7.
Repeat the same move to the left, and then repeat both moves again.

8.
Place your right hand on your hip and step to the left, swinging your right arm out.

9.
Repeat the same move to your right.

10.
Hold up your arm as if you're stopping traffic!

11.
Turn to your right and roll your left shoulder three times. That's it!

  3. Good the last surviving Bee Gee is still around - he got a good ovation at Glastonbury this year with Coldplay. We will always love those 70s videos in those tight trousers .....
