Tragedy by Bee Gees was a UK number 1 hit on Saturday, March 3, 1979 spending 2 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. The Gibb brothers wrote both this and "Too Much Heaven" (another American #1), in an afternoon off from making the Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band movie in which they were starring. Then in the evening they wrote another American #1 single, "Shadow Dancing" for their brother Andy Gibb. In January 1999 a cover by the British group Steps returned this song to the top of the British charts. Released as a double A-side with "Heartbeat," it sold over a million copies in the UK, making it the top selling Bee Gees cover of all time in Britain.
