1987: The Bee Gees returned to the Top Ten of the British record charts for the first time since 1979 when "You Win Again" went to the number one position, making them the first group to score a UK #1 hit in each of three decades: the 1960s, '70s, and '80s. American audiences seemed to be less forgiving of the band's Disco past and the new single could only reach as high as #75.
