“How Deep Is Your Love” is a pop ballad written and recorded by the Bee Gees in 1977 and released as a single in September of that year. It was ultimately used as part of the soundtrack to the film Saturday Night Fever. It was a number-three hit in the United Kingdom and Australia. In the United States, it topped the Billboard Hot 100 on 25 December 1977 (becoming the first of six consecutive US number-one hits), ended the 10-week reign of Debby Boone‘s “You Light Up My Life” and stayed in the Top 10 for 17 weeks, being the first song to spend 17+ weeks in the top ten since Chubby Checker‘s The Twist. It was also the longest song to be in the top ten in one run. It would hold the record until “End of the Road” by Boyz II Men. The single spent 19 weeks in the top ten after the introduction of Nielsen Soundscan in 1991 allowed singles to achieve longer runs on the charts. It spent six weeks atop the US adult contemporary chart. It is listed at No. 22 on Billboard‘s All Time Top 100. Alongside “Stayin’ Alive” and “Night Fever“, it is one of the group’s three tracks on the list. The song was covered by Take That for their 1996 Greatest Hits album, reaching No. 1 on the UK Singles Chart for three weeks.
“How Deep Is Your Love” ranked number 375 on Rolling Stone‘s list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. In a British TV special shown in December 2011, it was voted The Nation’s Favourite Bee Gees Song by ITV viewers. During the Bee Gees’ 2001 Billboard magazine interview, Barry reportedly said that this was his favourite Bee Gees song. Source: Wikipedia
