‘You Win Again’ marked a re­turn to form for global su­per­stars the Bee Gees af­ter a par­tic­u­larly bar­ren spell in the eight­ies. A hit in many coun­tries, it was their first UK num­ber one in more than eight years and it made them the first group to top the charts in the UK in each of three decades - the six­ties, sev­en­ties and eight­ies. In­stantly recog­nis­able from the open­ing drum sounds (first de­moed in Mau­rice Gibb’s garage), it stayed at the top in the UK for four weeks, pre­vent­ing Ge­orge Michael’s ‘Faith’ from reach­ing num­ber one.

The Bee Gees.
