Back in My Life Again, Carpenters

(Want You) Back In My Life Again / Somebody's Been Lyin'

1981

After the great showing of "Touch Me When We're Dancing" and a top 20 hit, I'm sure this release was a let down for Karen and Richard.  This song would only peak at #72 on the Hot 100 chart and would only reach #14 on the Adult Contemporary chart.  
Released in August of 1981, it would peak in September and then quickly disappear.  
I purchased this single on eBay, but it is not a favorite song to listen to.  It does appear on several compilations and is one that I do skip when I hear the intro begin.
Daryl Dragon (The Captain and Tenille) did some of the synthesizer programming for this song.
