"This Woman" is a song written by Barry Gibb and Albhy Galuten and was performed by American country recording artist Kenny Rogers. It reached #2 in the US Adult Contemporary Chart and #23 in the US Pop Chart.[2] It was published by Gibb Brothers Music and Unichappell Music.[3]

RCA pushed "This Woman" to pop radio, but the country stations flipped to the song's B-side "Buried Treasure".[1] In Germany, "This Woman"'s B-side was "Hold Me", another track from the album.[4] This song was recorded in May 1983 released in late 1983 in the US, and early 1984 outside the US.

Barry Gibb version[edit]

The original Barry Gibb version was released in late 2006 in iTunes on The Eyes That See in the Dark Demos[5] The song has a choppy verse, and this song's style like Miami than Nashville, and Gibb's version has a pop-rock and new wave style.[1] and Gibb sings lead and harmony on the chorus. Gibb's version of the song was recorded around January 1983, along with two songs, "You and I" and "Midsummer Nights".[1] Just the song starts, Barry's guitar was heard. The drums was probably played in drumsticks or programmed in.
