"If" is a song by Pink Floyd on their album "Atom Heart Mother". Written and sung by Roger Waters, it is about self-analysis. Like Grantchester Meadows before it, "If" carries on a pastoral and folky approach, but instead deals with Introspection and self-deprecation.

The song was only performed live once by the band, at a John Peel session, in July 16, 1970, at BBC's Paris Theatre, London. Unusually during that performance, Rick Wright plays both organ and bass. However, Waters did perform it numerous times on his solo tours, mainly during the 1984/1985 'Pros and Cons' tour, and in support of Radio K.A.O.S. in 1987.
