"I'm a man. Can't you see what I am?"

For Wednesday, this is the Bee Gees doing "To Love Somebody" in Australia in 1974. I linked to another version of it more than three years ago. I choose it again partly because it's a great song -- originally written for Otis Redding, according to the band -- and partly because Barry Gibb employs a singing method here I've never seen. If you watched the clip on mute, you might think he was trying to win a heated argument with his collarbone. Enjoy:

a heated argument with his collarbone, OR as if he's really putting his foot down with his guitar.
