This was the No. 1 song on the day you were born.
Once during an interview with Richard Carpenter, Terry Gross of public radio's "Fresh Air" was a bit too open about how dreadfully uncool The Carpenters were in the eyes of many back in the day. Carpenter didn't really appreciate it. And though Gross was absolutely right, the moment struck me as a misstep on her part. But take my word for it. If you do something practically every day that's going to happen.
