"Yesterday Once More", written by Richard Carpenter and John Bettis, was 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 Singles: 1969-1973 compilation. However, very few copies of that particular version are on CD. .
