The Bee Gees were a singing trio of brothers — Barry, Robin, and Maurice Gibb. They were born British citizens on the Isle of Man to English parents, lived in Chorlton-cum-Hardy, Manchester, England, United Kingdom and during their childhood years moved to Brisbane, Australia, where they began their musical careers. Their worldwide success came when they returned to the United Kingdom and signed with producer Robert Stigwood.

The multiple award-winning group was successful for most of its forty years of recording music, but it had two distinct periods of exceptional success: as a harmonic "soft rock" act in the late 1960s and early 1970s, and as the foremost stars of the disco music era in the late 1970s. The group sang three-part tight harmonies that were instantly recognizable; as brothers, their voices blended perfectly, in the same way that The Everly Brothers and The Beach Boys did. Barry sang lead on many songs, in an R&B falsetto introduced in the disco years; Robin provided the clear vibrato lead that was a hallmark of their pre-disco music; Maurice sang high and low harmonies throughout their career. The three brothers co-wrote most of their hits, and they said that they felt like they became 'one person' when they were writing. The group's name was retired after Maurice died suddenly in January 2003.

The Bee Gees were inducted into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997; fittingly, the presenter of the award to "Britain's first family of harmony" was Brian Wilson, leader of the Beach Boys, America's first family of rock harmony.

By the mid-'70s, the Bee Gees had successfully completed the transition from orchestral pop to dance-friendly white soul with the highly successful Main Course album. Encouraged by their success, they pushed further into their new style on Children of the World and in the process created a smash hit single with "You Should Be Dancing." This song represents the poppier side of disco at its most infectiously catchy. The lyrics are straightforward dance-music fodder that pay tribute to the charms of a disco-crazed woman ("My baby moves at midnight/Goes right on to the dawn") on the verses and urges the listener to hit the dancefloor on the chorus: "What you doin' on your back?/You should be dancing." The melody mirrors the excitement of the lyrics by contrasting fast-paced staccato verse melodies with a funkier, more relaxed chorus. The song's excited feel is crystallized by a multi-layered arrangement on the Bee Gees' recording: congas and other percussion layer the song's central throbbing drumbeat, dramatic waves of synthesizer swoop in and out of the mix, and the Bee Gees' falsetto vocals stand tall above it all. "You Should Be Dancing" also boasts a stellar, surprisingly hard-rocking guitar solo midway through, an element one might not expect in a dance tune. The resulting recording blended all the thrills of good up-tempo disco with strong pop hooks and made "You Should Be Dancing" an international hit, including a number one ranking on the American charts.
