"Still Waters (Run Deep)" is a song by the Bee Gees. It was the third and final single issued from their album, Still Waters, which was released in 1997. It is a pop ballad written by Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibb and recorded in the previous year. The recording and producing of the song were assisted by Hugh Padgham. For the third time in a row, the Bee Gees made a United Kingdom Top 20 hit single from the same album, peaking at No. 18 in the UK Singles Chart.[1] It peaked at No. 57 in the United States Billboard Hot 100,[2] their most recent appearance in that chart. The single performed well on continental European charts. The music video was directed by Jake Nava.

Music video[edit]

The Bee Gees are standing under and walking around the road bridges by the city at night while two lovers a woman and a man find their way to love each other. And there is the sunrise in the end of this video.


The single version was remixed with a more R&B/Hip Hop beat compared with the album version.[citation needed] A demo version was included on one of the UK CD singles.

Live performances[edit]

On 14 November 1997 they performed the song in Las Vegas for their One Night Only concert to promote the single.[3]
