Solitaire — Andy Williams

There are two pretty well-known versions of “Solitaire” — one by Andy Williams and one by The Carpenters.

If you’re a Brit like me, you probably think of “Solitaire” as an Andy Williams song — his version made the UK Top 5 in early 1974. And if you’re from elsewhere in the world, you’re more likely to think of it as a song by The Carpenters. Their version was a Billboard Top 20 single in 1975.
