The Carpenters-brother and sister Richard and Karen-from New Haven, Connecticut- won the Grammy for Best New Artist in 1970. “We’ve Only Just Begun” is the second of what would become 5 straight Top 3 singles they would have in 1970-71. Over their career from 1970-83 they would have 28 Hot 100 singles with 21 making the Top 40. Their three #1’s “Close To You” 1970, “Top Of The World” 1973 and “Please Mr. Postman” #74. I wonder at how many weddings over the past 50 years “We’ve Only Just Begun” has been played- thousands and thousands no doubt.
