I’m still in my disco mood from hosting last Saturday’s #ILikeToWatch live tweet so here’s Yvonne Elliman singing If I Can’t Have You. Technically, this is less a music video and more of a guest appearance on a TV show but, in the 70s, that’s as close as many songs got to getting a music video.
Yvonne Elliman also played Mary Magdalene in Jesus Christ Superstar. If I Can’t Have You was originally written for the Bee Gees but was given to Yvonne after the band decided that they couldn’t make the song work. She did a great job with it because this is one of those songs that you could just listen to a hundred times a day.
