338 – Yvonne Elliman – If I Can’t Have You (1978)
Written by Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibb
Produced by Freddie Perren
Label – RSO
The Gibb brothers wrote songs for numerous stars, but this one tops the lot and is one of those rare moments when the cover is better than the original version. Freddie Perren’s expansive orchestral production adds to the mix, taking this song way beyond the dance floor and into the listener’s heart. A classic.
