Music video[edit]

The music video for "All I Have to Give" was directed by Nigel Dick from June 19–20, 1997 in Los Angeles, subsequently after Everybody on June 16–18, 1997. There is no inherent theme or plot, and the video basically focuses on performance in various locations and outfits. The shots feature both the band singing the song, as well as performing their associated dance for the song, including a "hat dance" segment which is a portion of the dance which makes use of the fedora and sportcoat and suit jacket which are usually costume elements worn for the performance of the song. The video stylistically makes use of bright colors, out-of-focus elements, and transitions between shots other than the typical straight cut such as quick fades to and from black, cuts accompanied by a quick flash of white, and cutting as the shot goes out of focus or to a shot coming into focus. There are at least two cuts of the music video with little difference between them other than the occasional alternate choice of shot. Most notably, one cut of the video contains two elements that are absent in the other cut: several shots of the band members laying in a circle on their backs in a shallow bed of water while performing synchronized motions, and one bluescreen effects shot just before the key change in which the band members all spread out from the center of the screen to form a line while doing part of the dance. Neither of these appears in their official VEVO channel video version. Their costumes in this shot do not match any shot in the rest of the video. CD1 of the British single was sold with an image from this shot on its cover.
