Lesson notes

“Rainy Days and Mondays” was written by Roger Nichols and Paul Williams in 1971 for the popular duo The Carpenters for their album Carpenters. This song made it to #2 on the Billboard hot 100 chart, and was 1 of 4 #1 hits on the Adult contemporary charts. and then was later covered by Olivia Newton John as a tribute to Karen Carpenter years later. This lesson concentrates on the "chest"voice and is a great song for "Alto" singers.
