Hi,

Which of these two sentences is correct?

  1. All you have to do is to listen...
  2. All you have to do is listen...

In uncle Google I found that the former is much more often used while the later much less often, but it's used. Is #2 correct?

Thanks,
nyggus

#2 sounds much more natural to me.
