Loved the Bee Gees. Seems back to back disco with Donna Summer, although I've Got to Get A Message to you is far from disco. I haven't heard that song in a very long time. Thank you Petra. K.

Hi, K.! When I first heard this song in high school, fell madly in love with the Bee Gees and have been a fan ever since! :))
