Sweet sweet voice (rip )keren
If there has been a finer voice to walk this earth than Karen carpenters I have yet to hear it. So beautiful and sincere
Played at my wedding some 38 years ago!
Just words
S*** my graduation song
Great
I have listened to the Carpenters as long as I can remember. They are the BEST! Karen you were taken far to young. I can't wait to see you in the resurrection .

One of my favorite bands ever. I have always loved Karen Carpenter's voice. It was so special!
I love it
Captivating! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! What A Voice!!!!
The Carpenters produced such beautiful music, so mello, so smooth and lovely!
She didn't have a voice. Her throat was an instrument. And Richard has such an ear for music and those fingers on the keyboard are truly magical.
Pure voice
The song lyric is the perfect compliment for her voice
the first time i heard her beautiful voice she made me cry,she has the voice of an angelt.There is only one Karen
THIS song always makes me smile!

I remember watching the Karen Carpenter Story on Lifetime, I was so sad when I found out how she really died. I'll miss her . I use to sing her songs at karaoke and I use to get a standing ovation. We'll all miss her!

Karen had the most pure voice. I'm so glad we still have her music to keep us company.

The two purest female voices in music IMO are Karen Carpenter and Alison Krauss. Both sound like what I would imagine angels sound like......PU R E HEAVEN.
the carpenters i love and hate,,their song we only just begun,,was sung to my wife and i just after we got married, walking out of the church as of matter of fact, i have the the video tape of this,, so that makes me smile when i hear it,, 1988 ,,,then the hate part my wife passed in 1996 so the hate it that she left me,,i miss her so,, so i hear that song and i go back to 1988 love it --then i remember she is not with me,, i hate it,, i will never find a girl like her again,,,but i am looking

I agree with Danny Green, Karen Carpenter's voice was amazing.
I love this song so much!
Class Song for the Columbia High Class of 1971!!! Hey Lake City residents... a r e we doing a 40th Reunion (walkers optional)?
Karen Carpenter may have the single best voice in music history.
this song is a stick-in-the - b a c k - o f - y o u r - h e a d song that you can bring out when you need some comfort.
Everytime a Carpenter's Song comes on it is like finding a $20 bill in your pocket. It is to be savored.
Everything that begins also comes to an end.
Perhaps it's not over yet.
Maybe.
Soooooooo sweet! Thank you.
