This is a link post The Carpenters - Superstar
Caught this in a semi-awake state a few days back and was haunted by this woman's voice. Tragic end to her life, but what a voice.

She did the vocals in one take, which you can hear in this clip (with bass and click track backing)

Also, for those interested, Sonic Youth did a faithful rendition some years later:

This is a normal post Are you new to the Carpenters?
My parents were big fans and had all the albums, as kids we hated it. Later on I realise they produced a lot of good stuff.

This is a normal post No, I just forget.
I don't really go for the "Top of the World" or "Sing a song" stuff, but when she sings this or "Hurting Each Other" I stop and listen. What a voice!
