"Shine, Shine" is a song released by Barry Gibb. It was written by Barry Gibb, Maurice Gibb and George Bitzer, and the first single from the album Now Voyager in 1984.[1] The song reached #10 in the US Adult Contemporary Chart, #95 in the UK and #45 in Germany. The song was released on PolyGram Records in Portugal. MCA also put out a 12-inch single but with the same versions of two songs.
