      I thought most knew "To Love Somebody." Even their release did quite well.

    Yes, the song is very famous but there have been so many covers that people don't associate it immediately with the Bee Gees

Maybe I'm just showing my age, but whenever I think of the song, it's their original version that I hear. The first time I ever heard the song was their version, which reached the Top 20. It was very popular and was probably the version that got the most airplay when I was growing up.

I know lots of people have covered it, but I barely even recall many of the covers. I'm especially not a fan of Bolton or Buble. Their versions are the only two that really come close to the popularity of the original.

Growing up, the only other versions I was familiar with were the Animals, Simone, and Joplin versions. Hats off to them (I'm a big fan of all of them), but I don't think their versions were as good. It wasn't until I was well into my 20s that Bolton did his version (around the time my daughter was being born).
