    I would love to see the early Billboards of the 70's and re-watch the launch and rise of our fave singles. How much fun was AM's American Top 40? "Keep your feet on the ground and....

    That's hilarious Harry! In the past, when googling for Carpenter info online, I'd have to weed out the various Carpenters' unions links. Not surprising that a Carpenters item would be linked to hardware.

    I like to look at the higher grouping: Home Improvement. What home wouldn't be improved with some Carpenters music? :)

    I may have mentioned this before, but ... Back in the 70s, when Andy Williams was the regular host of the Grammys, he did a humorous bit about songs that were NOT nominated in the current year. I specifically remember two in particular:
    1. "I Am Woman" by Alice Cooper
    2. "If I Had a Hammer" by the Carpenters
    "Those were such happy times, and not so long ago...."

    Chart positions for most countries can be found on Wikipedia, although I don't know how reliable they are. All I can say is that the US positions are right on the mark.
