If I Can’t Have You #Monday Musical Memories

Although I didn’t see the movie until much later, I loved the soundtrack from Saturday Night Fever when I was in high school. During the spring of my junior year, while traveling with the concert choir to a music festival, I first heard selections from this album when another student played it on the bus.

That summer, my grandmother gave me my own copy on cassette for my birthday. I took a disco dancing class at the YMCA and practiced moves in my bedroom while listening to it. The tape eventually broke, as most cassettes do. Now, I ask Alexa to play the album on Amazon Music.

The song I’m featuring today was a favorite among the girls in my class. It rings true for me now that my husband has passed. If I can’t have Bill, I don’t want anyone else. Besides, I’m too old and set in my ways to reorganize my life around a man. I’m taking a break from singing and giving you the original movie soundtrack version, sung by Yvonne Elliman. Enjoy!
