Bluedreamer's Choice No 5

"Rainy Days and Mondays" is a 1971 song by The Carpenters that went to #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and was certified Gold by the RIAA. It was also the duo's fourth #1 song on the Adult Contemporary singles chart; however, it failed to chart in the United Kingdom until it went to #63 in a reissue there in 1993.
The song was composed in 1971 by then fairly unheard-of composers Roger Nichols and Paul Williams. It was released as the first track on the album Carpenters. The B-side on the single is "Saturday."
Olivia Newton-John, one of Karen's best friends, recorded a cover version of this song in her album Indigo: Women of Song as a tribute to Karen.

That's one of my favorite songs of the Carpenters. It was originally composed and also recorded later on by Paul Williams. Thanks for the post. God bless you always.
