Here is Jimmy Somerville’s great version of the Bee Gee’s song. Can you believe that Barry Gibb wrote this when he was like 16 or 17? There are an amazing number of covers of this song. We like the arrangement on this one a lot.

There’s a light, a certain kind of light
That’s never shone on me
I want my life to be, to live with you, live with you
There’s a way, everybody says
To do each and every little thing
But what does it bring
If I ain’t got you, ain’t got you, baby
You don’t know what it’s like
Baby, you don’t know what it’s like
To love somebody
To love somebody
The way I love you

In my brain, I see your face again
I know my frame of mind
You ain’t got to be so blind, and I’m blind
So, so, so, blind
I’m a man, can’t you see what I am
I live and I breathe for you
But what good does it do
If I ain’t got you, ain’t got you, baby
Baby, you don’t know what it’s like
Baby, you don’t know what it’s like
To love somebody
To love somebody
The way I love you

I want my life to be
Lived with you, lived with you, you
Baby, you don’t know what it’s like
You don’t know what it’s like
To love somebody
To love somebody
The way I love you
No, no, baby, please
You don’t know what it’s like
You don’t know what it’s like
To love somebody
To love somebody
The way I love you
