    Big fan here, and my favorites are the three title tracks, "I Just Want To Be Your Everything", "Why", "Words and Music", "Love Is Thicker Than Water", "Warm Ride", "Desire" and "Waiting For You".

    Most of those involve one or more of his brothers in songwriting and/or backing vocals.

    "Don't Throw it all Away" and "Thicker than Water" are also great songs.

    "Why" from Shadow Dancing has always been one of my favorite Gibb songs. Barry and Andy made a good team!

    Did you know that Andy Gibb only made three studio albums? I just recently realized that and was shocked that there were only three.

    When I first got into vinyl, I took a few records my dad had kept over the years. He kept a copy of Shadow Dancing and it was one of the first LP's I had. I don't think I ever played the album in its entirety, but I remember liking "Shadow Dancing" and I really liked "An Everlasting Love"

    "An Everlasting Love", especially when accompanied by this video.... That song title was his epitaph as well....

    I hope that treatment for the depression that Andy suffered from has progressed and improved so that no one has to go through the hell that Andy went through....

    Three albums and two non-album singles (four singles if you don't count a hits compilation). :D

    The way I remember it he went into TV and got hooked up with all the cocaine party types. :sigh:

    "I Just Want To Be Your Everything" and "(Love Is) Thicker Than Water" are two of my favorite pop singles by anyone. Ever.

    His last major U.S. hit is often overlooked, and it's fantastic:

    I think he could of had a return to form in the latter 80's had he lived. Not a fan of this video montage, just wanted to post this recording from mid 1987.

    It seems there was a vicious backlash against the Bee Gees as a whole sometime in 1980-81, right at the bursting bubble of disco. Donna Summer, A Taste of Honey & Chic took bad falls also. Andy was another to be swept away by the tide. That said, put my vote in for "An Everlasting Love". Still a good record.

    I love this performance by the Bee Gees where they paid tribute to Andy at the midpoint.

    I love Andy's 3 albums, with Shadow Dancing being my personal favourite. Don't know if I could pick a standout song, though.. Although I'm a big Olivia fan, I'm not especially fond of his duets with her. Agree with others that Time Is Time is great,

    Glad I picked up the studio albums on CD when they were in print.:)

    I know next to nothing about Andy's work, but as a kid I got the 'Desire' single for a present, and I still have it. It's a pretty good song.
