This song was the fifth and final single from the album A Song For You. It was originally only an album track; 2 years passed before it was released as a single. During 1973-74, the Carpenters found themselves with a busy touring schedule, which kept them from working on new material. As a result, they had no album issued for the year 1974, but decided to choose this song for single release.
Williams recorded his own version of this song for his 1972 album Life Goes On. Other artists who have covered this include Shirley Bassey, Rosemary Clooney, Bobby Darin, Robert Goulet, Maureen McGovern, Diana Ross, Barbra Streisand and Andy Williams.
