"Make Believe It's Your First Time" is a song written by Bob Morrison and Johnny Wilson, and recorded by Bobby Vinton and by the popular group The Carpenters.
Vinton's version entered the Billboard charts in late 1979 (b/w "I Remember Loving You") and reached #78 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #17 on the Adult Contemporary chart. It is Vinton's last Billboard Hot 100 entry to date.
The Carpenters' version was also recorded in 1979 by Karen Carpenter as a track intended for her debut solo album, which was ultimately shelved until 1996, with the release of her eponymous album, Karen Carpenter. After Karen's death in 1983, the song and its B-side, "Look to Your Dreams," were included on the duo's first posthumous album, Voice of the Heart. The single was also their first posthumous single.
