|"If There Is Something"|
|Song by Roxy Music from the album Roxy Music|
|Recorded||17 March 1972 at Command Studios, London|
|Genre||Art rock, glam rock|
|Roxy Music track listing|
"If There Is Something" is a song written by Bryan Ferry and recorded by Roxy Music for their eponymous debut album. A live version appears on theirViva! live album.
The song begins in a rather light-hearted, jaunty fashion, a slight pastiche of country music, with honky tonk style piano and twangy guitar. Ferry's singing is nonchalant and jocular.
However the mood of the song builds with a repeated instrumental motif played between guitar and saxophone, Ferry's vocals re-entering to provide a fraught vocal climax.
The instrumental motifs then return, finally giving way to an emotional end section where Ferry's impassioned and melancholy vocals are set on top of a lush blend of backing vocals and the mellotron "three violins" tape set.
It has been said that the first part of the song is a youth wondering about love, the second part adults in the heat of passion and the third part the singer in old age thinking about their past love.

Wish is the ninth studio album by British alternative rock band The Cure, released on 21 April 1992, through Fiction Records in the UK and Elektra Recordsin the US. The record is the final studio album featuring Boris Williams and the first featuring Perry Bamonte, as well as being the last album featuring Porl Thompson for sixteen years. While being a departure from the sound and mood of Disintegration (1989), Wish found the band moving into more of a pop direction, and received positive reviews upon release, including a four star review in Rolling Stone that stated: "For its cult of millions, the Cure offers the only kind of optimism that makes sense."  Wish was also the band's overall highest charting album, and most commercially successful in the band's career, given its debut at number one in the UK and number two in the United States, where it sold more than 1.2 million copies. Wish was also nominated for the Grammy Award for Best Alternative Music Album in 1993.
The album's first single was "High", released on 16 March 1992. The single peaked at number eight in the UK Singles Chart, forty-two in the US Billboard Hot 100 and number one on the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks. The album's second single, "Friday I'm in Love", released on 11 May 1992, became one of the band's most popular songs – reaching number six in the UK Singles Chart and number eighteen in the Billboard Hot 100, and number one in the Modern Rock Tracks. The final single was for "A Letter to Elise", going at number twenty-eight in the UK and 2 in the Modern Rock Tracks. On 16 November 1993, a limited EP called Lost Wishes was released on cassette with four new tracks on it.
