Bee Gees - STAYING ALIVE

First performance: 26/02/2014


Coverinfo

Bruce played the song three times, all 3 during the high hopes tour in 2014 because The Gibbs emigrated to Australia and settled near Brisbane in the late 1950s . In Uncasville, the song was played via sign requests. The song was played in a totally revamped rock arrangement and featured Australian string section Cooper + Koo formally dressed behind Max Weinberg's drum kit and providing a '70s disco touch. .The song started with Bruce Springsteen on acoustic guitar accompanied only by Curt Ramm on trumpet. He sang the first verse and then was joined by Cindy Mizelle, Curtis King, and Michelle Moore on the chorus before the string section played a few notes and then the full band kicked in.
 
The following day Barry Gibb tweeted:
"Dear Bruce @springsteen, just been blown away by your Stayin Alive. You brought it back to life. Thank you!"

Lyrics

Well you can tell by the way I use my walk I'm a woman's man, no time to talk
Music loud and women warm, I've been kicked around since I was born
And now it's all right, I don't care, and you may look the other way
We can try to understand the New York Times' effect on man

Whether you're a brother or whether you're a mother
You're stayin' alive, stayin' alive
Feel the city breaking and everybody shaking
And we're stayin' alive, stayin' alive
Ah, ah, ah, ah, stayin' alive, stayin' alive
Ah, ah, ah, ah, stayin' alive
Oh, when you walk

Well now I get low and I get high and if I can't get either, I really try
Got the wings of heaven on my shoes, I'm a dancing man and I just can't lose
You know it's all right, it's ok, I'll live to see another day
We can try to understand the New York Times' effect on man

Whether you're a brother or whether you're a mother
You're stayin' alive, stayin' alive
Feel the city breaking and everybody shaking
And we're stayin' alive, stayin' alive
Ah, ah, ah, ah, stayin' alive, stayin' alive
Ah, ah, ah, ah, stayin' alive
Oh-oh

Life going nowhere, somebody help me, somebody help me, yeah
Life going nowhere, somebody help me, yeah
I'm stayin' alive

Well you can tell by the way I use my walk, I'm a woman's man, no time to talk
Music loud and women warm, I've been kicked around since I was born
Now it's all right, it's ok, and you may look the other way
We can try to understand the New York Times' effect on man

Whether you're a brother or whether you're a mother
You're stayin' alive, stayin' alive
Feel the city breaking and everybody shaking
And we're stayin' alive, stayin' alive
Ah, ah, ah, ah, stayin' alive, stayin' alive
Ah, ah, ah, ah, stayin' alive
Yeah

Life going nowhere, somebody help me, somebody help me, yeah
Life going nowhere, somebody help me, yeah
I'm stayin' alive

Life going nowhere, somebody help me, somebody help me, yeah
Ahh, ahh
Life going nowhere, somebody help me, yeah
I'm stayin' alive

Life going nowhere, somebody help me, somebody help me, yeah
Ahh, ahh, ahh, ahh
Life going nowhere, somebody help me, yeah
I'm stayin' alive

Life going nowhere, somebody help me, somebody help me, yeah
Ahh, ahh, ahh, ahh
Life going nowhere, somebody help me, yeah
I'm stayin' alive
