Long ago and oh so far away
I fell in love with you before the second show

what an incredible voice! like striking a piece of fine Crystal. she started out as a drummer for their band and had to be convinced to sing. hard to believe, isn't it? i wouldn't have mentioned it, but none the comments referred to it, which just amazes me: she died from anorexia age 32. one of the first prominent victims whose death first called attention to the ravages of that horrible affliction. she literally starved to death right before us. and i saw it happening in photographs.

Big time Pandora oops! It was written by Leon Russel. The Carpenters released it in 1971, Richard Marx would have been eight years old then.

I did not know that Richard Marx wrote this tune, would that be the same Richard Marx of 8o's MTV? Anybody know?

Karen Carpenter was such a great ARTIST! It would be great if there were any talented voices today. Especially in County Music.

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.
