Goodbye To Love was a hit song by The Carpenters in 1972 on their album A Song For You. It reached number seven on the Billboard Top 100. The Carpenters received hate mail and many adult contemporary radio stations refused to play the song because many felt The Carpenters had sold out to rock and roll with the guitar solo in the middle of the song. The song was written by Richard Carpenter and John Bettis. It was Richards idea include the guitar solo performed by Tony Peluso. Peluso said it was one of the first “power ballads” to have “fuzz guitar solo. “A fuzzbox” is a signal processor used to distort amplified musical instruments like electric guitars, organs and other keyboards. The guitar solo in Chuck Berry's Maybellene used “warm overtone distortion”. Many fans felt the song would have charted number one without the solo and you have others say it made the song unique.
