Nicki French / For All We Know

AMBO Count


"For All We Know" is a soft rock song written for the 1970 film Lovers and Other Strangers, with music by Fred Karlin and lyrics by Robb Wilson (Robb Royer) and Arthur James (Jimmy Griffin). Both Royer and Griffin were founding members of the soft-rock group Bread. It was originally performed, for the film's soundtrack, by Larry Meredith. It is best known for a cover version by American pop duo Carpenters in 1971, which reached No. 3 on the US Billboard Hot 100 singles chart and No. 1 on the US Billboard Easy Listening chart. The song was also a hit for Shirley Bassey at the same time in the United Kingdom. It has since been covered by various artists.

The song became a Gold record. It won the Academy Award for Best Original Song in 1971

In 1995 Nicki French released her dance version as the follow up to her massive world-wide smash hit, "Total Eclipse Of The Heart". Again produced by Mike Stock and Matt Aitken the single was hit by barcode problems which meant sales were not recorded properly giving the single a low chart placing of #42.
