Excellent choice Martin. Karen Carpenters voice has reduced me to tears more than once! She has the voice of an angel. Sorry for sounding like a wuss but i'll admit it,she has such a sweet voice she stirs up emotions in me that only Dusty Springfield can as well. I adore Karen Carpenter and Dusty Springfield. I hope i made sense and hope it's not wrong to cry at emotional songs and singing voices. I will add that without Richard Carpenter's arrangements there would be no Carpenters at all.Excellent arranger.
This is my favourite Carpenters track.

I agree with everything you said. The Carpenters were masters when it came down to create the perfect pop song!
They were the perfect combination Martin. Karens beautiful voice and Richards arrangements made for some of the sweetest songs in music history. Some of todays artists should listen and learn from one or two Carpenters songs!
