“Love Pains” by Yvonne Elliman – Disco Video Mix by Glenn Rivera
Yvonne Elliman is a voice from the seventies whose songs bring an absolute power of both voice and feeling. Her big disco classic “If I Can’t Have You” from 1977 remains one of the staples of the disco movement and reached #1 in the US. Her 1979 album titled “Yvonne” contained one of the big disco anthems of that year – “Love Pains”. It was produced by Steve Barri and throughout time has maintained an allegiance from the dance community by being remade by artists such as Liza Minelli, Hazell Dean, Viola Wills and Obsession.
I have taken the 1961 romantic drama “Splendor In The Grass” starring Warren Beatty and Natalie Wood to pair images and moving emotions with this disco track. Although the storyline from the film moves differently it relays the pain of love when the timing and emotions are skewed.
The film was directed by Elia Kazan
