4. A Song For You / トップ・オブ・ザ・ワールド

カーペンターズのオリジナル曲に加え、L・ラッセル, C・キング, P・ウィリアムス等の作品を取り上げた通算4作目。最高傑作とも言われる意欲作。

A Song for You is the fourth album released by Carpenters, released on June 13, 1972. According to Richard Carpenter, “A Song for You was intended to be a concept album (of sorts) with the title tune opening and closing the set and the bookended selections comprising the ‘song’.”

Six songs were released as A-side singles internationally: “Hurting Each Other”, “It’s Going to Take Some Time”, “Goodbye to Love”, “Top of the World”, “I Won’t Last a Day Without You”, and “Bless the Beasts and Children”.
