The Carpenters Are Awesome

The Carpenters

The Carpenters - Karen (RIP) & Richard

I’ve spent most of this weekend listening to those soppy buggers The Carpenters. They have undeniably written some timeless pop classics, and they’re a bit of a guilty pleasure I think; I know it’s not cool to like them, but I like them nonetheless.

I’ve compiled my top ten Carpenters Tracks, and if you’ve got spotify, you should be able to listen to all of them, in full, via this collaborative playlist

Alternatively, I’ve found youtube videos of all of the tracks.

1. It’s Going To Take Some Time

2. Solitaire

3. Ticket To Ride

4. Superstar

5. I Won’t Last a Day Without You

6. Rainy Days & Mondays

7. Yesterday Once More

8. Calling Occupants Of Interplanetary Craft (The Recognized Anthem Of World Contact Day)

9. Goodbye To Love

10. We’ve Only Just Begun

    yeah, as un-cool as it seems, the carpenters were very very special.
    very very odd story.
