Boys (and girls) did fall in love with this Robin Gibb classic



Star Trek Beyond had a big weekend at the box office, proving that the masses still love stories set in space. Today we push the limits of '80s videos set in space with the magnificent cheesy Boys Do Fall In Love by Robin Gibb.

Robin Gibb is the twin brother of Maurice Gibb and together with older brother Barry, the Bee Gees became one of the most popular musical acts in history. As a solo artist, Robin hit the Top 40 twice, first with the Beatles remake Oh! Darling from the 1978 Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Heart Club Band movie and Boys Do Fall In Love that reached No. 37 on the charts in 1984.

Boys Do Fall In Love finds Gibb following the musical trends trying to skew young by setting his video in future while sporting sunglasses at night and singing about young love. Shedding the Bee Gees disco sound that dominated the late '70s, Boys Do Fall In Love is more bubblegum pop and was co-penned by the Gibb twins.

Robin would release seven solo albums, but no singles charted after Boys Do Fall In Love. Gibb died at age 62 in 2012 from cancer.
