"Yesterday Once More", written by Richard Carpenter and John Bettis, is a hit song by The Carpenters from their 1973 album Now & Then. Composed in the key of E, "Yesterday Once More" preceded an "Oldies Medley" on the album, consisting of nine songs from the 1960s. At the end of the song a motorcycle engine was heard to transition into the first song of the medley: "Fun, Fun, Fun". The motorcycle was mixed out on the version appearing on The Singles: 1969-1973 compilation. However, very few copies of that particular version are on CD.

The song peaked at number two on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and number one on the easy listening chart, becoming their eighth number one on this chart in four years [1]. Though not quite as celebrated as signature songs Close to You or We've Only Just Begun, the ballad is nonetheless the Carpenters biggest selling record worldwide, becoming their best-selling single in the UK, peaking at #2. Richard Carpenter admitted on a recent Japanese Carpenters documentary that it is his favorite of all the songs he's written. He has gone on to perform the instrumental version at concerts.

According to Cash Box Magazine, on June 2, 1973, "Yesterday Once More" was the highest debut single, debuting at number 71. By August 4, it had reached number one.[citation needed]

Dionne Warwick, a close friend of The Carpenters, performed this song live in Las Vegas the night before Karen Carpenter's untimely death in 1983
