"If I Had You" is a song recorded by the late Karen Carpenter during her solo sessions in New York with producer Phil Ramone for her subsequently shelved debut solo album. When the eponymous album was eventually issued after her death, "If I Had You" was released as its first single.

Even though Richard Carpenter was not featured on the track, "If I Had You" also appeared on The Carpenters album Lovelines (the title track served as the single's B-side). However, Richard did master the final edit of the song.
