Bee Gees Wiki

Melody Fair is a song written by Barry, Robin & Maurice Gibb and recorded by the Bee Gees for their 1969 double album Odessa.

It was used as the theme from a British film entitled Melody in 1970, which featured a number of other Bee Gees songs in its soundtrack.

Released as a single in Japan in 1971, it peaked at #3 and is among the group's better known songs in the Far East whilst remaining more of a deep cut in the US and Europe. Despite this, it gained a place on the 1973 compilation Best of Bee Gees Vol. 2.

Robin Gibb did not feature on the song but Barry and Maurice sang overlapping lead vocals.
