How Deep Is Your Love...
Apparently, our Prime Minister Gordon Brown listens to the Bee Gees every day.
I wonder whether this is (a) true, (b) part of a deal struck between Robin Gibbs and GB - "I'll give the Labour Party money but you must listen to us for five minutes every day for the rest of your life", (c) accompanied by GB singing along in a falsetto voice, (d) accompanied by GB and the Cabinet executing a beautifully choreographed dance routine and/or (e) associated with that funny thing he does with his mouth when he speaks, possibly the result of too much "jive talkin'".
I don't know what sort of music I'd have imagined our country's prudent leader listening to, but the Bee Gees wouldn't have been in my top fifty suggestions. He did famously once claim his favourite band were the Arctic Monkeys but then couldn't name any of their songs. Maybe Robin Gibbs needs to put him on the spot with a wee quiz.
