Favorite Carpenters songs by decade?

Without A Song

Thread Starter
And by decade I mean when songs were officially released, not when they were originally recorded. That way, there's more flexibility in choosing songs.
Here are my choices.

1960s: "Don't Be Afraid"
1970s: "Only Yesterday"
1980s: Tie "Want You Back In My Life Again" and "Kiss Me The Way You Did Last Night"
1990s: "1980 Medley"
2000s "Without A Song"
2010s "Make Me Laugh"

What a great idea!

1960's: Ticket to Ride
1970's: Goodbye to Love (although "Only Yesterday" vies for the top spot for me)
1980's: Ordinary Fool
1990's: Trying to Get the Feeling Again
2000's: Leave Yesterday Behind
