    So much for any theories about Karen's voice in late 1981, she still has "it"....
    listen in at 6 minutes , a snippet of Crystal Lullaby...Brazil 1981 interview:

    I couldn't agree more, GaryAlan! She sounds like the Karen of '72 in this snippet. She definitely still had 'it'. What a voice. You can even hear the happy DJ reacting to it. It's like the room stopped when Karen sang. :)

    Obviously the person who inquired about Crystal Lullaby had a passion about that song. It touched me the way he said "I love it" when following up. As the interview progressed and Richard started getting a vocal rhythm down for The Girl From Ipanema and some other Brazilian themed songs, Karen jumped in there on harmony. They never skipped a beat, sounded great as always. And I agree, Karen never lost "it".

    Jan Hooks requests Karen Carpenter.
    Actress and comedian Jan Hooks, best known for Saturday Night Live, passed away three years ago today. In this cute skit from the "Tush" show, she and her friends call a radio station to request "Johnny Angel by Karen Carpenter". The request takes place at 2:30 minutes into the video and we hear the Carpenters track. It's a sweet surprise to hear this Karen reference in this clip from 1980.

  11. Although their insane touring schedules and several unsuccessful singles surely must have taken a toll on their energies, Karen and Richard were far too talented to ever "lose it". Compare their talents with what passes as "music" nowadays; it makes one want to laugh (or cry!).

    Sat at my computer this morning and wanted some musical accompaniment. So I connected with San Francisco's 70s hits via internet for the first time, hoping to eventually hear the duo. Lo and behold, 3 songs in, a WONDERFUL SOUND is coming through the speakers; the hair immediately stands up on the back of my neck. Rainy Days and Mondays! I stopped everything I was doing and listened intently. No matter how many times I hear the Carpenters my emotions get stirred...It's going to be a good day:)!
