"Words" is a song by the English band Bee Gees, Written by Barry, Robin & Maurice Gibb. The song reached #1 in Germany, Switzerland, Netherlands and China.
Barry Gibb explains:“ 'Words' was written by me at Adam's Row when I was staying at Robert [Stigwood]'s place, A lot of people began to cover that song, so over the years it's become a bit like 'To Love Somebody'. I didn't know it wasn’t on an album - that’s strange how it used to work in those days. We used to bang singles out one after another. ” - Barry Gibb
Robin Gibb describes Maurice's keyboard sound on this track: “ That’s the IBC [Studios] compression, We discovered that quite early in recording at IBC. They had this incredible limited/compression sound that they pumped the piano through, which really was extraordinary and still sounds good even today. ” - Robin Gibb
It was originally intended for Cliff Richard, but he never got around to recording the track as he wasn't making an album at the time. Rather than wasting the song, the Bee Gees decided to record it themselves.
