|Bee Gees singles chronology|
"My World" was recorded and released while The Bee Gees were recording their new album To Whom It May Concern during the winter of 1972. This single reached #16 on the USA charts and #16 and #41 on the U.K. and Germany charts, respectively. The B side, "On Time," was rerecorded by Maurice Gibb for the soundtrack of the 1984 film A Breed Apart.
As Robin Gibb states in the liner notes of Tales from the Brothers Gibb, "One rollicking little jaunt that me and the lads came up with in downtown Birmingham, England, whilst doing a television show called Golden Shot, the ensuing results being that it went on to be a huge top 20 hit in the UK and the US that left the three of us 'drooling' with pleasure."
Originally released as a single only, it was later available on the LP, Best of Bee Gees, Volume 2 in 1973. The song has a fantastic play of words in the refrain part: "My world is our world, and this world is your world, and your world is my world, and my world is your world is mine".
It is the last single that Geoff Bridgford played the drums with The Bee Gees.
