"(If There Was) Any Other Way" is a song from Celine Dion's English debut album Unison. It was released as the first single in Canada (March 24, 1990) and second in the United States (March 18, 1991) and the rest of the world (June 6, 1991). In the United Kingdom it became a promotional release only.[1]

The song was written by Paul Bliss and produced by Christopher Neil.

There were two music videos made for the song: the first one was released in February 1990 for the Canadian market and it was directed by Derek Case, and the second on March 6, 1991 for the U.S. The latter was directed by Dominic Orlando and filmed in Los AngelesCalifornia and Vancouver,Canada. The two videos were included separately on Dion's 1991 home video Unison, depending on the Canadian or U.S. release.

Two dance mixes exist and can be found on American promotional single. One of them (edit remix) was released on the "(If There Was) Any Other Way" commercial single in the United States. The second one (extended remix) appeared later on the U.S. "Love Can Move Mountains" single in 1992.

The song reached number 23 in Canada and number 35 in the U.S. "(If There Was) Any Other Way" was more successful on the Adult Contemporary charts peaking at number 8 in the US and number 12 in Canada.
