By 1977, the Bee Gees were writing so many hits that they could afford to pass a few off to other artists. One of the key beneficiaries of this generosity was Andy Gibb, the youngest Gibb brother, who went on to enjoy a string of three #1 hits penned by his brothers. The first was "I Just Want To Be Your Everything," a soft-rock tune with plenty of Bee Gees-style hooks. The lyrics present a twist on the usual love song premise - the song’s narrator isn’t trying to win over some mysterious object of desire but trying to earn the devotion of someone who hasn’t made up her mind about him: "Open up the heaven in your heart and let me be/The things you are to me and not some puppet on a string." The music reflects the narrator’s inner tension by contrasting verses that rise and fall in a pensive fashion with a chorus whose rapidly ascending style mirrors the anxious quality of his pleas. Andy Gibb’s recording of "I Just Want To Be Your Everything" perfectly captures the essence of mid-1970's soft rock with its glossy production, which marries acoustic guitar textures and ethereal washes of synthesizer to a light but insistent beat that borders on disco. Gibb tops it off with a sweetly melodic lead vocal that crosses over into Bee Gees-styled falsetto on the chorus (the Bee Gees-styled sound is further enhanced by the prominent backing vocals of Barry Gibb, who also penned the song). The result was a can’t-miss slice of soft rock that became a #1 pop hit in 1977, starting Gibb’s career with a bang and setting the stage for a string of hits that continued through the end of the 1970's.
