I mentioned this tune in a post earlier this year about the new album coming from Jaime Page’s Dark Universe (read all about it) and it has haunted me since I watched the video. It is such a beautiful tune, and the fact that this live-version just about breaks my heart and heals it again is really something. Spectacular performances from the band and a special mention for vocalist Donna Greene who is just astonishing (as always).
Page had this to say about ‘If’:
From Jaime: If constantly reminds me to tell the ones dear to me that I love them. It also tells a story of loss and wishing you had taken a different course in life. Ultimately though, it serves as a reminder to love one an other for who we are, and the enduring reasons we should say YES!
