    The highest charting singles are not always our favorite singles!
    I know the Carpenter's radio decline was well underway in the USA by 1977. We heard a really strong vocal, a great production. AYGFLIALS had the word "hit" written all over it, regardless of how high it charted. :)

    I love it because it had serious groove. Tom Scott kills the sax solo too.

    Well AYGFLIALS was a Top 5 AC hit.

    ^^Interesting !
    I love that single, however, I purposely constrained my selection:
    AYGFLIALS includes outside background singers (Julia, Carlina, Maxine)
    thus, I intentionally omitted it from my choice of singles (sticking w/K&R backgrounds only).
    Also, in making my selection, my favorite single really ties with Only Yesterday--
    but, it has been written (by RC) about OY that it is his most "manufactured, manipulative" composition.
    thus, I stuck with We've Only Just Begun--I consider it his truest superb "discovery."
    Also: I omitted consideration of Christmas songs/albums. I omitted anything post studio-1981.

    Otherwise, I would be unable to come to any definitive conclusion upon anything !
