This song originally showed up on the multi-platinum album ‘A Song For You’ in June 1972. The song was released as a single in Japan during 1972 and went gold. At the same time, Country artist Lynn Anderson ("I Never Promised You A Rose Garden") covered it and her version reached No.1 on the US Country charts. In September 1973, the Carpenters released the song as a single in the US and UK due to popular demand. It shot straight to No 1 and became one of their best-known hits.
Karen Anne Carpenter left us on February 4, 1983. The silky-voiced singer died of heart attack, at the age of 32. That fateful morning Karen passed away owing to a heart failure caused by the long battle with the disease Anorexia Nervosa. The Carpenters have sold over 200 hundred million records up to date all over the world.
