Music & Stars of the Golden Yesteryears: Karen Carpenter
I wouldn't feel right doing this series if I didn't include this fabulous lady, ok so not from the days of Judy Garland but still a star in her own right it's the fabulous Karen Carpenter, she has always been a favourite of mine for as long as I can remember, I might not have understood what she was singing about back then as much as I do now but it was her voice that I loved so unique and different, I don't think anyone else has had a voice like Karen's since.
There are so many great songs from the Carpenters that to choose my favourites is very hard so I have gone for a few that I love to listen on a regular basis.
Until Now - 1981
Eve - 1969
Rainy Days and Mondays - 1985
All of my life - 1969
It really was a great shame that we lost her so early.
