Bread – Make it with you (1970)

“Make It with You” is a song written by David Gates and originally recorded by the pop/rock group Bread, of which Gates was a member.
The song first appeared on Bread’s 1970 album On the Waters. Released as a single in June 1970, it would become the group’s first top ten and only number-one single on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart in the U.S., spending the week of August 22, 1970, at the top spot.

The single reached number five on the UK Singles Chart. It was also certified gold by the RIAA for sales of over one million copies.

The song was well received by easy-listening stations at the beginning of the singer-songwriter driven soft rock era, reaching number four on the Billboard Easy Listening Top 40. The Supremes, Aretha Franklin, Earth, Wind & Fire, Dusty Springfield, Cilla Black, The Originals, The Main Ingredient, The Whispers, Marc Anthony, Teddy Pendergrass, Don Julian & The Larks, Let Loose, Dennis Brown, Andy Williams, Lou Donaldson, Tony Mottola, and Marc Cohn are amongst those who have recorded cover versions of the song.

It has also been recorded in other languages including Spanish, as “Quiero Hacerte El Amor” with a version by Blvd featuring M C Blvd being popular on the West Coast. Ralfi Pagan reached number 32 on the Billboard R&B chart during an eleven week run in the summer of 1971 with a Latin-soul version of the song, and also by Puerto Rican-American Spanish R&B group Barrio Boyzz in 1993 as “Cerca de Ti” (Close to You)
