"If You Were with Me Now" is a popR&B song written by British songwriting team Stock and Waterman, Australian pop singer Kylie Minogue and American R&B singer Keith Washington for Minogue's fourth studio album Let's Get to It (1991). The song was produced by Stock and Waterman. It was released as the second single in the autumn of 1991 due to a favourable reaction from radio stations and reached number four in the UK and the top ten in Ireland and South Africa as well as the top thirty in Australia. The song is Minogue's first hit single to feature her as a co-writer. Both Minogue and Washington recorded their vocals at separate times at Stock Aitken and Waterman's studio in London. Subsequently, the two had not met until the music video filming. Curiously, at no moment of the video do they appear together, and there are no obvious signs that the scenes of each of them were recorded at the same location.
