David Pomeranz composed "Trying To Get the Feeling Again" (David Pomeranz) for The Carpenters who did record it first but didn't release it for many years thinking it one too many ballads in their repertoire.

From the album "Trying To Get the Feeling" Barry Manilow (Pincus) made this a top ten hit in 1976 and a number one hit on the Adult Contemporary chart. The album also features "I Write the Songs" and "Bandstand Boogie", a few reasons why it went triple platinum.
