Released: June 1967

'To Love Somebody' was originally intended for Otis Redding , but he died before he could tackle Barry and Robin Gibb's latest masterpiece so the Bee Gees recorded it themselves. Although its chart performance was modest, the song has deservedly been covered on countless occasions by everyone from Jimmy Somerville to Leonard Cohen. That's some vocal range.
