Words is a single written by The Bee Gees, which was released in January 1968. It was dedicated for their first manager Robert Stigwood. Barry and Robin Gibb each described how the lyrics came into shape during a 1996 VH1 Storytellers TV show: Barry recalled the meeting at Robert Stigwood’s home: ‘Words’ was written by me at Adams Row when I was staying at Robert ’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.
After Bee Gees' 1st, the Gibb brothers took over producing their own records. It was easy, amid the sheer beauty of their recordings, to overlook the range of influences that went into their sound, which came from a multitude of sources, including American country music and soul music. At this point in their history, they were most comfortable deconstructing elements in the singing and harmonies of black American music and rebuilding them in their style. In 1969, the trio split up in a dispute involving the Odessa album.
