    I just heard- and purchased the song "Perfect" by Ed Sheeran. Just a beautiful song with a lovely lyric. This was the kind of song they should have been recording in the 80s. Reminds me of Van Morrison a bit. Give it a listen.
  2. Thanks for the post. I will check that one out. Let me put in my 2 cents...There is a clip on the TV show Make Your Own Kind Of Music (summer 1971) on YouTube that has the duo singing a Medley. It is Richard at the grand piano and Karen standing next to it with a mike. It was obviously a "live" segment. Karen's rendition of "A House Is Not A Home" brought tears to my eyes. Even though Dionne Warwick made it a hit, I would still have loved to have had The Carpenters record it and release it as a single...

    I gotta say I'm loving this Ed Sheeran song. It sort of tells the story of me and my wife all those years ago. So, sweet.

    While reading this post, listening to Stuck On You - Lionel Richie... That's a Carpenters song if I ever heard it.

    I can hear the harmonies, Karen's lingering on the last syllables of the last words in the chorus... and that touch of country in the arrangement.

    Ahhhhhhhh - - - - so many tunes.....

    I still think that the "Perfect" song for Karen would've been "I've Had The Time of Of My Life" from 'Dirty Dancing'.

    "We're All Alone" previously recorded by Rita Coolidge and Boz Scaggs would have been a perfect song in my opinion. Everytime I hear Rita's version I envision Karen's interpretation of the recording.

    100% agree there, I think they missed a trick not recording that song as a full album track.

    I totally agree... That and Collage's All Time High from the James Bond flick...
