"Rainy Days and Mondays" is a 1972 song by The Carpenters. It went to #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, and went Gold. It was composed in 1971 by composers Roger Nichols and Paul Williams. One of Karen's best friends was Olivia Newton-John, who recorded a version of the song in her album Indigo: Women of Song, as a tribute to Karen Carpenter.
