    Abba may have declined to record If I Can't Have You, but If It Wasn't For The Nights was a pretty close copy....

    I can't be the only one here who has mentally sung this to their crush, eh?

    That would have been fantastic, ABBA singing a Bee Gees song! I don't know if this story is really true though. There are sources who say that the Bee Gees met ABBA in Miami in early 1979 and invited them to record the song for the SNT album. This is, of course, not possible, as Saturday Night Fever was released in late 1977,

    Maybe a bad move
    SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER turned out to be the biggest selling album of 1978 and "If I Cant Have You" as recorded by Yvonne Elliman went to #1 in the United States.

    Kim Wilde's cover version is also good though not as strong as the original.

    Probably my second favourite after "Far From Over" but still a fantastic song, so many good ones on that soundtrack.
