Karen Carpenter, again

karencarpenter-3

My obsession with Karen Carpenter seems to only be escalating lately. My niece of eleven months is already a fan, smiling and clapping whenever she begins to sing. I have taught her well. I have already drawn and spoke about Karen once – way back in those hideously humid days of July… but it seems like only yesterday… I’m sure everything I wrote in there still applies. This one is rather more angelic.

Someone say Only Yesterday? Such a brilliant song.

      Thanks – so did I! I was with my niece for much of today; perhaps she’s a good luck charm?

    Beautiful resemblance of Karen C., The Carpenters have always been one of favorite singing duos. I’m sorry her life was cut so short. One of my favorite songs is Sing, Sing a Song. Thanks for bringing back the good memories their music.

      I wish Freddie and Karen had recorded a song together. Could you imagine? It could have been magical.

      Glad you like it! Thanks as ever, Geke.

    The first album I ever bought as a kid was the Carpenter’s A Song for You. I guess I am a big nerd. I also love listening to Barry Manilow because you can sing along and you know the words of the songs.

      Nerd? Sounds cool enough to me! 😉 It’s a sweet album. I can’t even remember my first album, so it can’t have been very memorable… if only it’d been The Carpenters, I’d have found them much sooner!
