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.
