#276 HURTING EACH OTHER The Carpenters
The touching ballad "Hurting Each Other" had been recorded by other artists before The Carpenters scored a hit with it in 1972. The first significant version of the Gary Geld and Peter Udell song was by Ruby and the Romantics in 1969. 
Richard Carpenter re-arranged the song. Jack Daugherty produced the track, which was included on the duo's 'A Song For You' album. In the USA, the single reached #1 on the AC Chart and 2 Pop. It also peaked in the Top 5 in Canada and Australia.

This is a list made up of the songs I enjoy the most, ranked in order of preference: the higher we go, the more I cherish them. Some were released as singles, others as album tracks. Some are obscure; others were worldwide hits or have universal appeal. They aren't always the most famous or popular, but simply a personal choice. I have excluded songs from the last few years in order to get a better idea of a song's lasting impression. I hope you find some new tracks to love, or re-discover some past favourites.
2 new instalments are added each day (every 12 hours) with 1 of the remaining 300 songs as well as moving down from #1201 to 1500, with 5 of those songs added daily.
