"Love So Right" is a R&B ballad recorded by the Bee Gees. It was the second single released on the album Children of the World.

Background[edit]

It was written mainly by Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibb earlier in 1976. Started to record in January 18, then February 8 and finished in May 8 in Quebec, Canada with the other songs "Can't Keep a Good Man Down", "Boogie Child", "Subway", "The Way It Was" and "You Should Be Dancing". It was the fourth Bee Gees single to feature Barry Gibb's falsetto exclusively as the lead vocalist as well as the previous singles, "Fanny (Be Tender with My Love)" and "You Should Be Dancing".[1]

Release[edit]

"Love So Right" hit number three on the United States Billboard Hot 100 chart as well as the US Billboard Adult Contemporary chart. In addition, it was a minor hit on the US Billboard Black Singles chart, peaking at number 27. "Love So Right" by contrast is a more traditional kind of Bee Gees song that could easily have been done the old way had Barry been inclined to do so, The falsetto makes it sound more new and different than it is, The question of how much falsetto is enough has caused much friendly argument among fans.[2] Its B-side was "You Stepped Into My Life".[3] In Canada, "You Stepped Into My Life" was chosen as the A-side and this song was the B-side.[4]
