About the Song
"For All We Know" is a popular song originally written for the 1970 film Lovers and Other Strangers by Fred Karlin, Robb Wilson (Robb Royer) and Arthur James (Jimmy Griffin). It was originally performed by Larry Meredith. It gained popularity when it was heard by Richard Carpenter of The Carpenters during an evening of relaxation at the movies while on tour. Upon hearing the song, Carpenter decided it would be ideal for the duo to record, and it became a hit for them in 1971, reaching #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart. The song also spent three weeks at #1 on the U.S. adult contemporary chart. The song then went on to win the Academy Award for Best Original Song, though the Carpenters were not allowed to perform the song at the ceremony as they had not appeared in a film. At their request, the song was performed by British singer Petula Clark. In tribute to Karen Carpenter, Clark.    Download this sheet!
