Don’t forget that Karlin also wrote another song that the Carpenters covered...”Leave Yesterday Behind”.I guess every composer explores a range of styles and writes for a variety of purposes. Fred Karlin was one of the writers of ‘For All We Know’. How would you describe that song? ‘Sublime...heavenly....majestic.... beautiful....’ I can’t imagine it ever being described negatively. However, I’m glad that Richard and Karen didn’t choose to record ‘Come Follow, Follow Me’, another of Fred’s compositions (with Marsha Karlin), which was actually also nominated for an Academy Award. ‘Come Follow, Follow Me’ doesn’t appeal to me, on first hear, whereas I’ve always loved ‘For All We Know’. Others may have different opinions, of course. The two songs are from totally different types of films, by the way. This song is from a children’s movie.
