"Rainy Days and Mondays" is a 1971 song by The Carpenters that went to #2 on the "Billboard" Hot 100 chart and was certified Gold by the RIAA. It was also the duo's fourth #1 song on the Adult Contemporary singles chart; however, it failed to chart in the United Kingdom until it went to #63 in a reissue there in 1993.

The song was composed in 1971 by then fairly unheard of composers Roger Nichols and Paul Williams. It was released as the first track on the album "Carpenters." The B-side on the single is "Saturday." It has been covered by Olivia Newton John, Sarah Vaughan, The Intruders, Emmy Rossum and Cracker.
