    HUGE Karen Carpenter fan!!!! I have listened to her for as long as I can remember. My favorite song (of her many great ones) is "Sing" . whenever I hear that song for some reason it brings tears to my eyes, not sure why, it brings me back to my young childhood years.
    Also, love "yesterday once more". I could sit and listen to her all afternoon with you and we could just kick back and chill listening to her. That would be "A ticket to ride" lol. pun intended

    PS. Love her Christmas songs too!

    Re: Karen Carpenter

    She was one of the greatest singers of the 20th century. Her voice had a resonance that just reverberates in your head. Unlike many of today's singers who try to cram in extra notes and flourishes to bring attention to themselves, Karen simply sang the song as written, always beautifully, and brought attention to the beauty of the song. Truly one of the great singers.

    i am obsessed with karen carpenter

    i cant get her out of my head, nor can i ever get enough of her music... that sweet, pure, velvety voice of gold.

    although she died some 30 years ago, way before i was even born, i feel this great connection to her, something rare that i havent felt with anyone else. i feel as though i almost knew her, and am deeply saddened by the tragedy that was her life. she is the number 1 lady in my life. i may come off as crazy -- i dont really care. karen has helped me get through a lot in the last couple years with the beautiful music she made. there is a bond between her and me thats indescribable. i love her, i really do.

    now that ive finished rambling on, is there any celebrity you guys feel particularly close to, a celebrity that stands out from the rest, that you think has actually affected your life?

    Just, you know, keep eating.

    Even in my pre-adolesecnce, it was considered somewhat lame to listen to the Carpenters. Nowadays, getting on Sesame Street gets you cool points, but the Carpenters actually covered a Sesame Street song, as well as a Crocker Bank commercial. And that just added to their appearance of non-appearance. They were cheese, definitely, but it wasn't until years later that my palate refined enough that could appreciate much of what they did. Some of their covers still come off as chintzy ("Please Mr Postman"), and I can't redeem "Sing" no matter how I try. But songs like "Superstar" are brilliant.

    She had a terrific contralto voice. It would have been great to see what she could have grown into.

    I like her as well. My parents got me into her tbh, but there are days I find myself listening to some of her songs. Such strong passion in her voice one could feel all her emotions. What happened to her was a tragedy.

    Another lady right up there for me is Eva Cassidy. Also a sad story, also a brilliant voice. Maybe I'm just attracted to tragic, rare birds.

    Huge fan of the Karen.. I cant hear the song "Sing" without it bringing a tear to my eye, it really brings me back to a fun part of my childhood. Also Christmas at my house is always filled the Carpenter songs, with my personal favorite being "Merry Christmas, Darling" But ya, all of their collection is still awesome even to this day!

    Tragic stories always haunt us, and her was one of those, incredible talented and incredibly doomed... I wonder if she ever has happy, being gifted most of the times is also a curse....

    One of those stories that scared my youth was Gia Carangi, so beautiful but also so doomed...

    Exactly correct, Lex.

    In the late 70s, you wouldn't DREAM of admitting to listening to the Carpenters. we thought of them as "way too square".

    Nowadays, people appreciate her musical genius.

    One of my happiest memories is riding in a school bus on a field trip in 1972 or 1973. I had just turned 10, and we all went on a school outing to the Museum of Atomic Energy, and had a picnic afterwards.

    On the bus, her song "Sing" came on the radio. All of us kids in the school bus sang the song along with her. I remember those days as among the best years in my life.

    What a treasured memory I have of this event. I feel very glad that I'm 50, and could experience all of this.

    i cant get enough of learning about her and her life. im even reading a book of articles about them, currently. her life was such a tragedy but it also brought to light the degree of seriousness to the illness for the rest of the world.

    i think the same way. a lot of the most gifted people to have graced this earth ended in tragedy and i sometimes think their talents are too much of a burden, if that makes sense.

    The Carpenters' music was such a part of my teenage years...I have always loved Karen's voice. I still listen to their music and often become sad, when I recall her passing. I was inconsolable for some time, after hearing she had died. The world lost a truly gifted vocalist and they are so rare. She could sing as perfectly live, as she did on the recordings. Thank goodness for technology, so we do have her music still available to us.

    I am glad we have a thread on her. I love her music, her voice and how her songs are relatable to.
