Karen Carpenter what can I say , was overseas when I first heard "close to you", then to find out you lived next to my home town in calif, you named 2 apartments after your songs, your voice was amazing, could sing in low octave, devastated when you passed, pandora brought you back to life!RIP karen.

She had a great voice, and could make a heck of a birdhouse.

@Jayson... That's pretty classless. Besides, Mama Cass did not choke on a sandwich. She died from a heart attack

A beautiful rich and poetic voice that will stand the test of time. Simply amazing!

If Karen carpenter had eaten mamma cassie' s sandwich, they would both still be alive today. Lol

While Karen Carpenter's voice will ring on throughout the ages, I can't help but think that she was taken from us way too soon...

Nothing around today like the Carpenters. I was 16 when this one came out and it still sounds great and brings back fond memories.
Thanks Karen & Richard! Sure miss you guys.

the Carpenters never got there due. This and 'Goodbye to love' just outstanding

It seems after my significant other broke it up with me I'm feeling so different about falling in love again. Yet I hope and I believe there is someone who truly will love me for who I am and not use me again, ever.

One of my favorite songs of all time by any artist!

To a 15-year old in 1971, this was the epitome of sad love songs. Break-up music supreme.
