Mack David co-wrote "Baby It's You" with Barney Williams and Burt Bacharach, a 1961 hit for the Shirelles and a great opening track on the flip side of the Carpenters' second album.
An interesting thing about Mack is that he tried to convince his younger brother Hal NOT to become a songwriter and choose a more stable profession. However, Mack failed to follow his own advice, and instead of following a career in law, he began writing songs on Tin Pan Alley. Mack David was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1975.

"You Should Hear How She Talks About You" was written by Tom Snow and Dean Pitchford.
Dean Pitchford co-wrote "Now" with Roger Nichols (the latter of whom co-wrote many songs with Paul Williams in many earlier outstanding Carpenters hits and tracks —"We've Only Just Begun", "Rainy Days and Mondays", "Let Me Be the One", "I Won't Last a Day without You", etc.).
"Now" was on the "Voice of the Heart" album and had the sad distinction of being the last song recorded by Karen.

You are right on all accounts Mr. Dreams. Dean Pitchford was a co-writer of both "You Should Hear How She Talks About You" and the Carpenters' shimmering "Now".

Oofah! Am I ever glad we have some logical left-brainers on this forum. As you can tell, this is NOT my forte! Great job Dreams, wj7, and all of you with "logical minds." I enjoy reading through the posts, and learn something every single time.
On to the next one....I'll sit back and learn...
