About the Song
"Jive Talkin'" is a song by the Bee Gees, which hit number one on the Billboard Hot 100 and reached the top-five on the UK singles chart in the summer of 1975. Largely recognized as the group's "comeback" song, it was their first U.S. top ten hit since "How Can You Mend a Broken Heart" in 1971. The song was originally called "Drive Talking". The song's rhythm was modeled after the sound a car would make crossing the bridge from Biscayne Bay into Miami. The sound of the car's tires were making a "Chicka, Chicka, Chicka," sound, which was used vocally before the group sings the title of the song. Producer Arif Mardin wished to market the song toward the teen market, and suggested the change to "Jive Talkin'" (the phrase "jive talkin'", slang for "telling lies", was a popular colloquialism at the time). Barry Gibb wrote the song and then had to fix the lyrics upon completion because he had assumed.    Download this sheet!
