If You Remember Me by Chris Thompson (1979)

If You Remember Me by Chris Thompson (1979)
After several years with Manfred Mann's Earth Band,  ChrisThompson left in 1979 and formed the Los Angeles-based outfit Night, which enjoyed two hits during its lifetime. One of them, "If You Remember Me," the unused theme song for Franco Zeffirelli's remake of The Champ , was initially credited solely to Thompson; later pressings of the single were credited to "Chris Thompson and Night." (But this source gives lyric credit to Carole Bayer Sager for "If You Remember Me," and the music credit to Marvin Hamlisch.) The song reached #17 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and #7 Adult Contemporary. It was a very minor hit in Canada (#91). After the band broke up in 1982, he rejoined the Earth Band.
