1967 The Bee Gees release "New York Mining Disaster 1941", which will climb to #10 in the UK and #14 in the US. The song is unusual in that the title never appears in the lyrics, although the originally planned title, "Have You Seen My Wife, Mr. Jones", is heard in the chorus. There actually had been a mining disaster in New York, but it was in 1939, not 1941. The Bee Gees would later say they were inspired to write the song by a 1966 Aberfan mining disaster in Wales.
