"Desire" was written by Barry Gibb, Robin Gibb and Maurice Gibb and was originally recorded by the Bee Gees in 1978 during the sessions of Spirits Having Flown and Blue Weaver recalls that this version was originally intended for the album. After spending weeks on it, they dropped it from the album lineup. Later it was recorded by Andy Gibb and released as a single and on the album After Dark and Andy having a new lead vocal in 1979.
Andy Gibb's version
Andy Gibb's version of "Desire" was released as a single in January 1980, reaching number four on the Hot 100. Any sense that Andy was channeling the Bee Gees rather than finding his own way would be confirmed here, as all three of his brothers were heard in the background too. Sounding a lot like "Too Much Heaven", Andy's version would be last top ten single in the United States. In other countries this single and its B-side "Waiting For You" were released as a double A.
