"The Carpenters" and "fuzz guitar solo" are two phrases that do not exactly go hand in hand. But for one brief moment, the two coexisted merrily in the soft-rock universe. The title "Goodbye to Love" came from a fictional tune mentioned, but never heard, in the 1940 film Rhythm on the River, but session guitarist Tony Peluso's hard-rock solo was anything but old-fashioned. "I'm thinking: 'What would be right?' I played something that was very soft and easy; I tried to stay out of the way," Peluso said. "Richard [Carpenter] said, 'No, no, no, not like that. Play the melody for five bars and then burn it up! Soar off into the stratosphere. Go for it!'"
