Carpenters - A Song For You RIAA Certified Platinum! Click here to see this CD at!

By Peter Blackstock

Released at the height of the Carpenters' popularity in the early '70s, A Song for You spawned five hit singles. Its title track by Leon Russell somewhat surprisingly wasn't one of them given that it's probably Russell's best-known song and later became a country hit for Willie Nelson. Two of the album's most successful songs, the No. 1 smash "Top of the World" and the Top 10 hit "Goodbye to Love," were cowritten by Richard Carpenter and John Bettis; most of the record's other material came from outside sources, including "I Won't Last a Day Without You" (Paul Williams/Roger Nichols), "Hurting Each Other" (Peter Udell/Gary Geld) and "It's Going to Take Some Time" (Carole King/Toni Stern).
