This First of May music video is a tribute to Bee Gees' Robin Gibb who passed away May 20, 2012 after a long battle with cancer. Farewell Robin.

First of May was released in 1969 and featured in the soundtrack of Melody -- a 1971 British film about "puppy love" starring Jack Wild, Mark Lester and Tracy Hyde.

Incidentally the song was responsible for the departure of Robin from the Bee Gees. Robin had wanted Lamplight to be the album's first single but Barry preferred First of May. Barry won and Robin quit. A year later, they reunited to become one of the most prominent and successful group in the history of pop music.
