"Aubrey" is a song written by David Gates, and originally recorded by the Pop/Rock group Bread of which Gates was a member. It appeared on Bread's 1972 album Guitar Man. The single lasted 11 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, peaking at number 15.
The songs features no drumming but relies on various melodic resources such as orchestral strings, classical guitar and a music box. Lyrics talk about a short-lived love (referenced by "she had been mine for a day") for a girl called Aubrey and furthermore Gates' like for that name. It's regarded as one of Bread's most beautiful yet melancholic songs. The song was later recorded (1973) by Perry Como and released on his And I Love You So album of covered songs.
