THE BEE GEES "I STARTED A JOKE" 1968 HQ AUDIO
Watch a wonderful, live performance of "I Started a Joke" from 2001:
Written by Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibb the song is supposedly about someone who has done or said something horribly wrong, which results in feelings of social alienation. Others have described it as quite spiritual and could in fact be dealing with the Christian savior himself. Robin Gibb talked in 2009 about "I Started a Joke": "This is a very spiritual song. The listeners have to interpret it themselves, trying to explain it would detract from the song" The hauntingly beautiful melody brings the ballad up to one of the top 2 or 3 songs that the Bee Gees have ever written.
