If You Asked Me To (3:54)

Cover of My Love Essential Collection

From My Love Essential Collection and 21 other releases

Céline Dion covered “If You Asked Me To” and released it as the second single from her eponymous album. It was produced by Walter Afanasieff and was released on April 6, 1992 in the United States, and later the same year in the rest of the world.

The B-side of this single contains an unreleased track called “Love You Blind,” which was written by Jay Oliver and Sheryl Crow, and produced by Walter Afanasieff.

The music video for the song was directed by Dominic Orlando and filmed in Chatsworth and Hollywood, Los Angeles. It was released in April 1992 and included later on Dion’s 2001 DVD video collection All the Way… A Decade of Song & Video.

The song was a hit in the United States and Canada. “If You Asked Me To” reached #4 on the Billboard Hot 100, # 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 Airplay and #11 on the Hot 100 Singles Sales. Did even better on the Hot Adult Contemporary Tracks chart, spending three weeks at #1.

In Canada, it reached # 3 on the Canadian Singles Chart and #1 on the Contemporary Hit Radio Chart. The single had moderate success elsewhere. “If You Asked Me To” was released twice in the United Kingdom: first, in June 1992, when it peaked at number 60, and the second time in December 1992, when it reached number 57. According to Nielsen SoundScan, the single has sold 415,000 copies in the U.S.

“If You Asked Me To” was included on the North American versions of Dion’s greatest hits All the Way… A Decade of Song in 1999 and My Love: Essential Collection in 2008.

    I was a little harsh in my previous comment! But seriously? Celine's version is just...better in my opinion!

    I prefer Patti's version titled "If You Axed Me To."

    @MJRocker I agree 100% I don't hate Patti but Celine brought something to this song and made it her own.

    This album (the self-titled one, that is) is probably my favorite, and this is my third favorite song from it.

    This song and water from the moon, often takes me 14 years back when i met my soul mate. Remembering the glint in her eyes as i mimed 'water from the moon' with my croaked voice, and she has been mine ever since!

    I'm not worthy! teehee This is a wonderful song, I feel as though Celine is singing directly to me. What a wonderful honor if this were true, what a wonderful experience indeed! Gotta love Celine because she is so dad-burned wonderful.
