    Carpenters Lovelines

    One of the most under-rated Carpenters albums, remains one of my all-time favorites. The album consists of remixed tracks from the solo Karen Carpenter album as well as deleted album tracks within the last couple recorded albums shortly before Karen's death (Passage, Made In America.)

    My favorite tracks are Lovelines, Where do I go from here, You're the one, and Remember when Lovin' took all night.

    I love the Carpenters as well. I have their box set from 1991 or'92, "From the Top". It's pretty cool. It's funny that you brought up the Carpenters/Karen because there's a book about her called "Little Girl Blue". It came out in May of this year, but I just saw it recently. Might be a cool read.

    I love the Carpenters. Karen was amazing. my favorite song if I had to pick just one, would have to be Yesterday once More. but when I hear "Sing" it brings me back to kindergarden, then followed by tears. to me, that is such a sad song.

    Why Do Gay Men (in particular) Love The Carpenters?

    I noticed on the web (and on here) that many fans are gay men -- young and old who absolutley love the music. It's almost considered a gay stereotype (like liking Cher or ABBA), and their fans have been predominantly gay men and straight women.

    Is it that straight men who enjoy them are too embarassed to admit to liking soft, "effeminate" sounds about love and gay men don't have that stigma? I think many gay men love Karen and her voice. Many can identify strongly with her tragic personal life (like other gay icons) and tragic death. She was an outsider who led a sad life of pain that she tried to hide. She was almost punished for being herself and didn't feel like she belonged in her family (like gay people might). Her self destructive behavior is one some can check off for themselves. Also, anorexia is second most common in gay men.

    But I think gay guys can relate the lyrics and sounds of the saddness and pain in her voice to there own lives and find a sense of comfort and solace in them. She sings out the emotion built up and the music becomes cathartic. Karen's personality and warmth attracts outsiders who can feel better knowing about her. Gay men love women who they can strongly identify with and Karen fits the bill. I also believe that, more than straights, gay's can appreciate beauty and asthetic more than straight men can who dismiss it as shallow love songs.

    But, what do you think?

    Re: Why Do Gay Men (in particular) Love The Carpenters?

    if idolization of one particular person ( singer or actor ) is common particularly to gay men I would suggest this is just common usual behaviour tempered with the rare certainty that this person is Safe . Cher being a rather emphatic example . Often if media people comment at all it is hostile or negative ( Axl Rose ) , and explicit male positive is very rare . Safeness is rare .

    dead is about as non-threatening as you can get . Dead famous people . That guy from Queen . Nobody liked him much before . Dying can be a very foresightful career move .

    You're kidding, right? There would have been no Queen if it hadn't been for "that guy". And if 'dead' makes a singer popular, explain Justin Bieber.

    Re: Why Do Gay Men (in particular) Love The Carpenters?

    Wikipedia
    "The extent to which Mercury's death may have enhanced Queen's popularity is not clear. In the United States, where Queen's popularity had lagged in the 1980s, sales of Queen albums went up dramatically in 1992, the year following his death.[93] In 1992 one American critic noted, "What cynics call the 'dead star' factor had come into play—Queen is in the middle of a major resurgence"."

    some other 70s bands / personalities were a lot bigger in terms of sales and tv time and have completely vanished . In the 80s they were nowhere .

    Yeah I know. I've literally read that same comment in a bunch of different places, like Yahoo Answers.

    But is there any particularly reason why you, as a gay man, enjoy them?

    I love all the songs by the Carpenters. Such a tragedy about Karen Carpenter. Taken too soon by anorexia.

    Ohhhh nice thread. I have ALLL the albums and even some bootleg concert recordings of them. Can't get enough of Carpenters. I think my favourite song is Karen's favourite which happens to be I Need To Be In Love from the 'A Kind of Hush' album. Love to see Carpenters fans.

    Re: Favorite Carpenters song?

    One of my favorite singer of all time, and Rolling Stone mag also listed her as one of the top 100 singers of all time as well. Madonna said she is "completely influenced by her harmonic sensibility" and all you have to do is listen to "Used To Be My Playground" which could have been a Carpenter song. Very under appreciated as a singer, and she was always pitch perfect, and had an element of sadness naturally in her voice. "Now & Then" was one of the first albums I bought with my own money. Favorite track is probably her cover of "Tryin" To Get The Feeling Again" with "Ava Maria" a close second. She worked with Phil Spector, and the album was released after her death. Worth checking out.

    It's a shame that Richard Carpenter doesn't write songs and perform anymore. I remember he recorded an album with Dusty Springfield after Karen died. It was a nice album. Check it out.

    His musical arrangements and her singing were a great harmonious combination. Such a tragedy!

    If I had to select just ONE of my
    favorite song from Carpenters,...it would be:


    Touch Me When We're Dancing

    and all of the songs listed on their
    "Made In America" -- Album.
