The cunt collapsed in a closet......Talent can only get you so far.......If she'd have gone Lesbo.......She'd be alive today......Did you know she could play the shit out of some drums?
I have been on a Karen Carpenter kick of late.... holy shit was she perfect
She could lose another 15 pounds, right Robin.
But have you seen her play drums?
Is it really true if Mama Cass gave her a ham sandwich they'd both be alive today?
Why did they need 10 pallbearers?
The thing that people overlook is that Richard was a hell of a producer and composer. He was watching TV one day and an add for Crocker Bank (now Wells Fargo) came on with a the song "We've only Just Begun" in the the background. He recognized song writer Paul William's voice on the track who had indeed written an entire song which he then produced with Karen singing lead and that started their fame.
Richard also wrote Goodbye to Love, Top of the World, Yesterday Once More, and Only Yesterday. He turned out to be a heck of a businessman as well, re-investing their money in shopping malls and real estate.
We were just talking about that I swear. Weird man. *twilightzonemuzic*
Boy, that Julie Chen really hasn't aged a day, has she?
I wish I could get that anorexic gene i would fit right in in NYC.
Comedian Bill Cosby, opera star Beverly Sills, country singer Johnny Cash, and L.A. anchorperson Connie Chung got together this week and formed a new singing group. However, they can't think of a name for the act. If you have a suggestion, send it to "Cosby, Sills, Nash, and Chung" at Weekend Update.
I'm from the Stones, Who, AC/DC, Foo Fighters school of rock, but The Carpenters were always a guilty pleasure. I saw them with Mac Davis at The Ohio State Fair as a kid and still remember how good Karen was that day. She had a perfect voice for pop music and Richard was an excellent writer, producer, and all-around businessman. It was a sad day when she died because even though it was pre- Internet, we sort of watched it unfold, and for once, it wasn't drugs that did her in.
we've only just begun was the #1 song that was sung at weddings for 30 years, ending about 10 years ago. they were huge in the 70s. variety shows galore, constant touring etc.
