Bee Gees was the band and songwriter behind the words and lyrics of “Islands In The Stream.” Actually, the song was named after Ernest Hemingway’s novel. Interestingly, the song was supposed to be for Marvin Gaye with a beat of R and B. Then, it was changed in a country style for Kenny Rogers. Also, it was decided to have Dolly Parton as a featured artist. It was a good decision after all. “Islands In The Stream” was released in August 1983 as part of Kenny’s album “Eyes That See In The Dark.”

Furthermore, “Islands In The Stream” was Kenny’s second number one hit after “Lady” in 1980. Meanwhile, the song was Dolly’s second number one hit after “9 to 5” in 1981.
