If it's alright with you baby - The Korgis

The Korgis released 'If it's alright with you baby' in 1980 as the second single from their second album 'Dumb waiters'. The single version was slightly different from the album version, omitting a few synthesizer sounds in the musical break in the middle of the song.

The single reached number 56 in the UK singles chart and number 33 in the Dutch Top 40. It was a slightly disappointing chart performance after the top 10 hit 'Everybody's got to learn sometimes'.

My collection: 7" single no. 808
Found: All that music, Leiden, May 5, 1989
Cost: 2 guilders
Tracks: 'If it's alright with you baby' / 'Love ain't too far away'


  1. Weird really, personally I think this is just as good as Everybody's got to learn sometimes. Quite charming.

  2. Love this beautifully melodic song and its turn of the eighties production. Low-budget suburban romanticism - sweet, charming and just a little creaky - reminds me of the incidental music in contemporaneous films such as Gregory's Girl. My fave Korgis single; I get very nostalgic whenever I hear it. A perfect marriage of song and kitsch single-sleeve too.
