If I can't have you - Yvonne Elliman

Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibb, a.k.a. the Bee Gees wrote 'If I can't have you' in 1976. They intended to record it as a track on their follow-up of the 1976 Bee Gees album 'Children of the world', but when they became involved in the soundtrack of the movie 'Saturday night fever', they gave the song to Yvonne Elliman to record it.

Elliman's version of the song became an international hit, reaching number 1 in the US Billboard Hot 100 chart and number 4 in the UK singles chart. The Bee Gees also recorded the song themselves, and it was released as the B-side to their single 'Stayin' alive'.
