Tune Time - If

This old tune by American singer-songwriter David Gates is still a favourite as a first-dance song at weddings. Originally popularized by Gates’s group Bread, the song charted at number four on the Billboard Hot 100 when released as a single in 1971. The song also spent three weeks at number one on the Easy Listening chart.

  2. Oh yeah, baby, I remember this one. It was a favourite for slow dancing at the sock hops. Not that I got asked to slow dance, but still. I remember the song.
