First The Marvelettes took this to #1 in 1962. The Beatles who loved girl groups- covered it and it was one of the flood of singles released early in Beatlemania- it went to #68 and now The Carpenters take it back to #1. This is a rather pedestrian version. So far in 1975- we have three #1’s and all three are cover songs.
