“Come On Over” is a ballad written by Barry and Robin Gibb and recorded by the Bee Gees for their album Main Course, with lead vocals by Robin, joined by Barry in the chorus of the song. A live version was recorded in Los Angeles during their Children of the World Tour and appeared on their first live album Here at Last…Bee Gees…Live. The song was more reminiscent of their older style compared to the new R&B sound of “Jive Talkin'” and “Nights on Broadway”. It would become a #1 adult contemporary hit for Olivia Newton-John in 1976.
In 1976 Olivia Newton-John’s recording of “Come On Over” was released as a single and also became the title track of her 1976 album. It peaked at #23 on the Billboard Hot 100 and was Newton-John’s sixth #1 in a row on the Easy Listening chart, for one week in April 1976. “Come On Over” peaked at #5 on the US country chart and #3 in New Zealand.
