Music you can't forget!

The song was supposed to have been about an incident in which a Pennsylvania official claimed that several college students, high on LSD, were blinded after lying in a meadow and staring at the sun. After the story gained notoriety around the world, and reporters were unsuccessful in tracking down the source, the hospital, and the students involved, the official admitted to concocting the entire story and was forced to resign.

And the real story as told by Robin Gibb: "The idea for the song came when I was sitting on a plane over Germany, and I heard a melody in the droning of the engine. As soon as I got on the ground that night I completed the song with Barry and Maurice. To me, that was a very spiritual song, about faith and survival in life. It wasn't a love song, it was one of the first songs we wrote about struggling to survive emotionally alone in the world."

Hmm, interesting trivia, Naomi.

I always thought this was an anti-spiritual song. I thought the lyricist was mocking the Christian resurrection tale by calling it a joke.
