"Still Waters (Run Deep)" is a song by the Bee Gees. It was the third and final single issued from their multi-platinum Still Waters album, released in 1997. The song is a pop ballad written by Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibb and recorded in 1996. The recording and the producing of the song were assisted by Hugh Padgham. For the third time in a row, the Bee Gees made a UK Top 20 hit single from the same album, peaking at No. 18 in the UK Singles Chart[1]. The single performed well around the European charts, and peaked at No. 57 in the US Billboard Hot 100, their most recent appearance in that chart.

Versions[edit]

The single version was remixed with a more R&B/Hip Hop beat as compared to the album version.[citation needed] A demo version was included on The Fantastic Bee Gees Backsides And More CD.

Live performances[edit]

In 1997, they performed the song in Las Vegas for their One Night Only concert to promote their then current single.
