The Carpenters' first single was a cover of The Beatles' "Ticket To Ride," which hit in the US. This was their second single. This was featured in the 1989 movie Parenthood, starring Steve Martin. It was used in a scene where Rick Morranis' character sings to apologize to his wife in the middle of teaching her class. She was also drummer on several of the album cuts from the Close to You album. She was an accomplished drummer (praised by Hal Blaine, Cubby O'Brien, Buddy Rich and in a May 1983 article in Modern Drummer magazine) before she was a singer, but eventually they decided that she should be out front because of her amazing singing ability.

Richard had stated that when Alpert introduced the song to him back in early 1970, he was a bit apprehensive about the song.
