Long ago and oh so far away
I fell in love with you before the second show
Your guitar, it sounds so sweet and clear
But you're not really here

But you're not really here... its just the radio... wow! .... the greatest voice ever. Streisand is a close second. R.I.P. Karen Lynn Carpenter
Karen has the absolute most purest angelic voice that has ever touched my ears! Rest in peace...
This Song, Is So Captivating, Timeless, & Extremely Beautiful:)
No one can sing as crisp and clean like Karen Carpenter. She sang from the heart

Linda Ronstadt and Karen Carpenter... . two of the most incredibly beautiful voices.... many others, but these two stand out for me!
One of my all time favorite songs. A classic. I fell in love with her voice as a little girl and listening to her brings me back to that time singing along with her wishing i had her haunting beautiful voice.
Hearing Karen's voice always makes me so sad. How beautiful, and how tragic!
Wow the carpenters.. . . b e a u t i f u l voice. Rip Karen
that gal could sing,1 of the best voices of all time
slange828

This song is beautiful .I love you .....
Ramsaranramt a h a l @ y a h o o . c o m the most beautiful voice ever recorded
Gone to soon.....
So cool that it was written by Stevie Wonder.

Hauntingly beautiful... a voice that melts me.
I love it
A really sweet voice
The sirens in Homers The Odyssey could not have had voices as sweet and fine...
If there has been a more beautiful voice than Karen carpenters to walk the earth I have not heard it.
Love this song! Hearing her voice always makes me so sad, though. What a tragic waste!
Her music brings back some good memories for me. :)
I love it

What a loss, Karen Carpenter was the best. Beautiful voice, she will live on through her music.

Classic!
I wish Karen had lived to make more music over the last 25yrs.
She has very good, powerful vocals.
jillca8
Beautiful, poetic, heartbreakin g . . I have always been a big fan of their music. The world lost a wonderful talent when Karen died. She had a voice like an angel.

There'll never come along a voice like Karen's. Perfect, always perfect, was how the recording engineer would comment on Karen's voice. In the recording studio, the Carpenter's were perfectionis t s and they rarely, if ever made mistakes. What a tragedy that the rest of us have been robbed of this wonderful gift to the world. But Karen does live on in all of us who are her biggest fans.

They were good, nice memory.
Breaks your heart from the first verse. No song brought out the melanchology and sadness in Karen's voice like this gem penned by Leon Russell. Easily the most haunting cover of the song, would have been perfection if Richard had not sped up the choruses and just let us luxuriate in the mournful spell of Karen's singing.

Never be another duo like the Carpenters, were the bomb!
harndenburg_ k s
Chris Farley & David Spade in Tommy Boy singing this song while driving down the road with tears in their eyes - one of my favorite movies moments!
Love them both.
They could have done a good job with the phone book.
Leon Russell did a great job writing this. The carpenters do a great job with it.
