Many think that Canada's Guess Who were first to record "Hurting Each Other" (Udell - Geldd) but it isn't so! Produced by the composers, Jimmy Clanton and the Anne Phillips Singers did it first in 1965 as the B side to "Don't Keep Your Friends Away" while the Guess Who cover was several months later on the album "Hey Ho, What You Do To Me" and not released as a single until 1966 when it hit Canada's top twenty.

Carpenters hit the top five with "Hurting Each Other" in 1972 from the album "A Song For You".
