Leaving the Carpenters out of this for a moment, Glen Campbell was a member of The Wrecking Crew and played on hundreds of your favorite songs, whether you knew it or not. Or at least he did for me. What he did over the course of his career transcends the notion of competition. This is comical.

The Carpenters. I like both songs, though.

yeah, it is. it's still a close call for me. I'm a sucker for "Superstar" and not in any hip & detached sort of way.
I think her vocal, bland though it may be, really shines.

BUT, WL is just about a perfect record in every way. it sticks in my head for weeks after I hear it.

I know way more Carpenters songs, but I like C&W better. Glen Campbell was pretty special.

Virtually every other carpenters song would win over wl. And even superstar achieves it.

Witchita Lineman is Webb's highwater mark, and given the man is a fucken tune tsunami, that's saying something.
Good.
