How Can You Mend A Broken Heart

Chris Gillard
Easy Listening

Barry and Robin Gibb wrote the song in August 1970 with “Lonely Days” when the Gibb brothers had reconvened following a period of break-up and alienation. They originally offered the song to Andy Williams, but ended up recording it themselves. Maurice Gibb possibly had a hand in the writing of “How Can You Mend A Broken Heart” although the song is officially credited to Barry and Robin Gibb. The 2009 release “Ultimate Bee Gees” officially credited Maurice for the first time as cowriter of the song, for both the “Ultimate” CD and DVD, and it was credited to the moniker Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibb.
