The moving love song IF was first published in 1934 but did not become well known until 1951 -
when eight different versions became hits almost simultaneously! Perry Como's was the No. 1 recording;
others were by Jo Stafford, Dean Martin, Billy Eckstine, the Ink Spots, Guy Lombardo, Jon Garber and Vic Damone.
