I’m sure I’ve posted this song before. But as my favorite Carpenters song, and perhaps one of my favorite songs of all time, there’s something about Karen in this live version of Superstar that kills me. Her voice was so beautiful and simple - worlds apart from the trash that we’ve become subjected to from the pop singers of today. There will never be another Karen Carpenter and I don’t think there will ever be a pop song as haunting as Superstar.

GPOY if there ever was one for me.
