Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.

       The policeman wanted to know what time the first man had come, what he looked like and whether Arthur had noticed the number  of his  van.  The detective said that the man had done this trick before. He was well known in Middleford at that time. He said he often came to houses where there were lodgers after the landlady had gone shopping on a Saturday morning. Mrs Harrison told him that she'd only been out for about half an hour when he came.

  2. For a start, I am going to talk about Bee Gees. Bee Gees was an English boy band which was formed in Australia in 1958 by the bothers Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibb. The trio was especially successful for the album Saturday Night Fever, called the same as the film. This album was extremely famous. As well, the band was one of the most popular for fifty years, selling more than 120 millions of copies. The group retired after the death of two members. In 2012 with the death of Robin and the death of Maurice in 2003.

    On the contrary, they played a lot of great songs. Some of them are To Love Somebody, Staying Alive, Night Fever, Tragedy, How deep is your love… Music stars like John Legend, Ed Sheeran, Andra Day, Celine Dion and other pop, R&B, rock and country played homage to the Bee Gees and the group’s blockbuster 1977 soundtrack album Saturday Night Fever in an all-star Grammy Awards. Actually, Staying Alive spent 24 weeks atop the Billboard sales chart in 1977-78.

    In my opinion, I think that the Bee Gees was an iconic band who defined a generation. What’s more, the song Saturday Night Fever soundtrack is an emblem of 1970s pop culture. In just a word, DISCO STILL LIVES.
