Come and Get Your Love
"Come and Get Your Love" is a song by Native American rock band Redbone. The song was originally released as a promo track under the name "Hell" and was later featured on the album Wovoka (1973), under its current name. The song was released as the album's first single the following year. Written and produced by band members Pat and Lolly Vegas, it is one of the band's most successful singles. The song later appeared on many "greatest hits" albums released by the band, as well as on numerous compilation albums of the 1970s.

The single cut is significantly shorter, with the album version featuring an introductory slow part, plus a longer repeated coda. Most radio stations rarely play the latter. The song features a prominent part for electric sitar.
The song peaked at number 5 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart on April 13, 1974. It spent 18 weeks in the Top 40 and landed as the fourth-most popular song on the Hot 100 for 1974. The single was certified gold by the RIAA on April 22, 1974, which indicates that it had shipped over a half-million copies in North America. The song is Redbone's highest charting single and one of two Top 40 hits by the band. (An earlier recording, "The Witch Queen of New Orleans," peaked at number 21 in 1972.)
In France, the single peaked at number 177 on the Singles Sales Chart (physical sales + downloads) in 2017. The following year, Redbone's version featured in a Christmas 2018 media advertising campaign from Bouygues, the French telecommunications company, and the song soon rose to the top of the pop charts. It entered the Downloads Chart's Top 10, and reached number one on the Singles Sales Chart at the end of the year. It also peaked at number 20 on the Singles Chart (downloads plus streaming) during the last week of the year.

|Real McCoy singles chronology|
In 1995, the German Eurodance and Pop music project Real McCoy released a cover version which peaked at number 19 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. The Real McCoy take also went to number 1 on the American dance chart in August 1995. It was released as a third single from the Another Night album in the United States.
The Gavin Report wrote about the song: "Based on immediate programmer reaction, it seemed destined that this cover of Redbone's 1974 hit would be the obvious follow-up to the trio's hits, 'Another Night' and 'Runaway.' Polishing it up '90s- style gives the group a clear shot at plenty of radio and club play for the summer ahead."
