    John Adam "We are observing your Forum".........Baby

    This is my second favorite Carpenters single. This song and "Rainy Days" are two of the singles that once she starts to sing just grab your attention........and you can't help but just listen, almost paralyzed by her vocal performances. Karen has said this is her favorite Carpenter/Bettis tune and it shows. She acts and lived every note she sings. This one also under-performed on the charts, an early sign that radio was changing into a new animal. And Richard had the nerve to tell her not to do disco??? But he's probably right. All it would of bought is 10 minutes in the spotlight VS a career. :)

    10/10
