"(Love Is) Thicker Than Water" was the second of three #1 hits for not-quite-Bee-Gee Andy Gibb in his solo career. It followed "I Just Want To Be Your Everything
" and preceded "Shadow Dancing
." But that's just #1 hits by Andy Gibb; in the general scheme of things, this song bumped the Bee Gees' "Stayin' Alive
" from #1 and was itself bumped by the Bee Gee's "Night Fever
Is that not enough Gibbs for you in the #1 spot? "Night Fever" was seceded by "If I Can't Have You
" - which also happened to be written and produced by the Gibb brothers. Basically anybody who remembers 1977 will tell you that the whole year was one big blur of Gibb, and then at the end there there was Star Wars
and somebody lit up Debby Boone's life.
