It's throwback Thursday, so we're throwing it back to 1982 to when brothers Barry, Robin, and Maurice Gibb gave their iconic song 'Massachusetts' a unique makeover on British TV.

Stripping back the 1967 hit for an impromptu acoustic rendition on Parkinson, the harmonies the three Bee Gees have is truly spine-tingling.

For the pitch-perfect performance, Robin took on lead vocals while Barry and Maurice played guitar.

The song became the first Bee Gees song to go to number one in the UK and would eventually go on to sell over five million copies worldwide.

It's no wonder the Brothers Gibb sold nearly 220 million records and won 10 Grammy Awards.

Barry is the only surviving member of the band, following the deaths of twins Maurice (2003) and Robin (2012).
