    Let's have some fun and play name that Carpenters tune.
    Here's how it works. We can open this to any Carpenters tune,
    including Richard/Karen's solo tracks, even duets as long as one of the duo is present.
    It might be easier to keep it to officially released songs.
    Post the lyric (must be at least 4 words as anything less will be too hard to guess)

    If you play and guess the tune you must list the next 4 word lyric for the next person to guess.
    Cheating by googling the lyric will get you disqualified :laugh:

    So can you guess this Carpenters tune?

    "the times I've tried"

  2. I've got it... "Happy"

    I was singing those 4 words but couldn't pin the song... Wow that was frustrating ! :laugh:


    Here's the next:

    "Like falling leaves on.."

    Leo Sayer, "You Make Me Feel Like Dancing"! Sorry, first thing that came to mind :) Don't think we solved Graeme's clue yet.

    You are correct Rick! An outtake from Karen's solo album. A song that I think could've had potential with a little more TLC.

    Your Wonderful Parade? (Seriously, your first hint does not match any lyrics in Nowadays Clancy Can't Even Sing.)

    Comes in at 2.36. Seems to tie in with the lyrics online as well I think.
