"(Our Love) Don't Throw It All Away" is a song written by Barry Gibb and Blue Weaver in 1977 and first released by Andy Gibb in 1978 as a single, only in the United States.[1] Andy Gibb's version of the song added a bridge section not on the original Bee Gees' version. The single reached #9 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and #2 on the Adult Contemporary chart.[2]

During the Bee Gees' One Night Only tour, they performed the song with Andy's vocal mixed in during the second stanza, chorus, bridge and the coda of the song years after Andy died.
