Yesterday Once More

Lyrics

When I was young I'd listen to the radio
Waitin' for my favorite songs
When they played I'd sing along, it made me smile

Those were such happy times and not so long ago

I think the carpenters were the Best! It always puts a smile on my face and makes me think of the greatest time , growing up .
I started listening to the carpenters music in 17 and never stop the best
This song brings back fond Memories of me and my parents. So young and free. Those were the days!
Karen you were mesmerizing with almost every note i miss you
Couldn't resist but I'll be honest, they both have a few catchy tunes.
Some day somebody will write a nostalgic tune like this with Lady Gaga and Britney Spears in mind.

I wish it was yesterday, once more..
This voice is really classy
Real Love Music:)

such a beautiful voice ..... takes me back to when times were simpler
The Carpenters music brings me back to wonderful time in my life, I miss them both.

The older I get, the more I appreciate her voice. A Great talent.

It's ironic that they're singing about the songs of the 50s and 60s, but now it applies to them as well. This is the Carpenters at their best.

All my best memories come back clearly to me, some can even make me cry, just like before...
My idol, I miss their music so much. It always brings me back to a special place.
you are so missed
It's yesterday once more.....wis h I could go back for a little while. Such pure talent.
Karen Carpenter was and is still an amazing talent. Her songs are like food to my spirit. I miss you Karen. RIP
Her voice was a fantastic instrument without question, but a little credit for the material is in order as well. This is a well crafted song that any music fan can relate to.
I miss Karen Carpenter. What a beautiful voice and she most definitely could have sung more songs if that eating disorder hadn't taken her life. I wish somehow someone could have come to her rescue to save her life.

In a word...no.
How sad she's been gone so long. I have often wondered how she would sound today. What a terrible waste of a beautiful voice...
Could Karen sing a song and it not sound Great?
