New Featured Unknown/Underrated Song: "More Than a Woman" by the Bee Gees

We can't go too long into this feature without including one of the best of all-time.  The Bee Gees never released this song at the peak of their career because "they didn't want to get greedy".  Which is one of the best qualities of the group.  Nevertheless, radio stations played it and it became one of the most popular songs of the Rock Era.  In fact, a station that doesn't play it today is--how to I put it nicely--out of touch.
"More Than a Woman"
by the Bee Gees

Words and Music by Barry, Robin & Maurice Gibb


Oh, girl I've known you very well
I've seen you growing everyday
I never really looked before
but now you take my breath away.

Suddenly you're in my life
part of everything I do
you got me working day and night
just trying to keep a hold on you.

Here in your arms I found my paradise
my only chance for happiness
and if I lose you now I think I would die.

Oh say you'll always be my baby
we can make it shine, we can take forever
just a minute at a time.

More than a woman, more than a woman to me
more than a woman, more than a woman to me
more than a woman, oh, oh, oh.

There are stories old and true
of people so in love like you and me
and I can see myself
let history repeat itself.

Reflecting how I feel for you
thinking about those people then
I know that in a thousand years
I'd fall in love with you again.

This is the only way that we should fly
this is the only way to go
and if I lose you I know I would die.

Oh say you'll always be my baby
we can make it shine, we can take forever
just a minute at a time.

More than a woman, more than a woman to me
more than a woman, more than a woman to me
more than a woman, oh, oh, oh.
