If and Cadence and Cascade

I tried to show my friends the pieces If by Pink Floyd and Cadence and Cascade by King Crimson sound suspiciously similar.

They admitted there are some similarities but differences too. They neither supported nor opposed my claim.

Wikipedia tells If was recorded in August 1970 and the album In the Wake of Poseidon some months earlier.

However, Pink Floyd played If live before the recording, and while King Crimson definitely wins by record date (the album was even released before Floyd’s live act) the question which one was written before seems to stay undecided.
