A promotional video or music video has a way of bringing a single to life. It's hard to imagine Michael Jackson's Thriller without the visual. Arguably, if it didn't have the short film attached to it the song wouldn't be nearly as memorable. In the time of The Carpenters, promo videos weren't so much a fully fleshed out stories, but simply had the artist lip-syncing with occasional cutaways. The Carpenters had some well done videos made over their career. My favourite we be "Only Yesterday." What song of the C's do you wish had a promo video? and why? (This can also include a song you wish had made it into one of their TV specials) For earlier in their career, I'd say Road Ode. It's a fantastic song. Lyrically it humanizes them in a way other songs don't. Great to see this with some footage on-tour and in the studio singing it. Later, I'd go for When you've got what it takes. It was more contemporary in '81 and talks about finding your strength rather than lamenting or wanting something to be better. There's something more brother/sister duo about it too.
