"Run to Me" is a song by the Bee Gees. It was the lead single and released in 7 July 1972 and first track on the group's 1972 album To Whom It May Concern. The song reached the UK Top 10 and the US Top 20.
We wrote this is at our manager Robert Stigwood's house in Beverly Hills. He was a great visionary and championed our beliefs and chemistry as brothers. Lyrically, this song chronicles the wishes of a man who longs to be noticed by a broken-hearted girl.
Robin also recalls, "We recorded 'Run to Me' and Andy Williams cut it on his LP. If Andy Williams came up to us and said write a song and we wrote 'Run to Me' for him, he probably wouldn't have recorded it. But we recorded it and then he recorded it."
"Run to Me" was recorded in 12 April 1972 at London's IBC Studios same day as "Bad Bad Dreams" and "Please Don't Turn Out The Lights". It was very much in the mold of the last two successful singles, "Don't Wanna Live Inside Myself" and "My World". The song has a straight verse-chorus number with vocal by both Barry and Robin. Maurice sings in a very low key along with Robin in the chorus which is barely audible, something he rarely did in concert when they performed this song.
"Run to Me" saw the Bee Gees return to the UK Top 10 after a three-year absence, climbing to #9 while in the US it reached #16. The first Bee Gees single without drummer Geoff Bridgford as he left the band in January that year.
A promotional video for this song was filmed in black and white, features Barry and Robin stands in front of Maurice's grand piano holding only a microphone.
