  1. Not sure why, or if there even needs to be a reason why, but I've been longing/missing the sound of Karen's voice (and Richard's arrangements) lately. I've been listening a lot lately, and when I do, my standard poodle (CHARLIE) always comes and lays his head on my lap....as if to say "thank you....who is that angelic voice singing"?!!! Being nostalgic lately. How can one deny that this was a once in a lifetime voice?...???? No wonder M adored her!

    Karen...the voice of an angle

    @wash oops!! Just noticed my stupid mistake! Although I'm sure Karen could sing that "angle" beautifully!!!

    Favorite Original Movie Scores

    @Jazzy Jan You always bring such good topics/great music in times of drought!! Thank you! @runa No tackiness detected w/Vangelis. Their scores were so dramatic (as the movies) and took you to another time and place. @Lolo Timeless music that touches the heart/soul and only enhances the viewing experience. This shit never gets old!!!!!

    Favorite Original Movie Scores

    I used to love this song (Theme from Ice Castles....Through the Eyes of Love)....until singing/playing it countless times for weddings. I got sick of it!! But now, I actually can enjoy it again.

    Favorite Original Movie Scores

    When thinking of original music/movie scores, this always comes to mind. And no matter how many times I watch it, the hospital scene with that damn cute little boy (Teddy) makes me cry like a baby!!....oh, I love the music too!!!

    Karen...the voice of an angle

    @Raider of the lost Ark Guess for now we'll have to settle for this little Karen tribute.... But that thought of M singing Carpenters alone ..... it makes me smile!!!

    Karen...the voice of an angle

    I just love how right before singing live, she says "ugh, I've gotta get in a serious mood here" (right at the beginning). Her "get into the mood" voice must have been so easy for her. I know they had many "sad" songs, but there were many "joyful/playful" ones also. I just wonder what she may have felt while singing those songs, because she never showed her sadness. Sure, you may have heard it, but she always had a smile on.

    Karen...the voice of an angle

    @Jazzy Jan True....we do share similar taste in our female vocalists!! M, Karen & ONJ....it's like running your fingers through silk. A few others that can bring that feeling are Whitney, Toni Braxton, Barbara....I know I'm missing some (especially a few from the 70's I remember admiring). Your mother (and you) is a smart woman with an ear for smooth/rich tones that deliver emotion and passion (not to mention annunciation) without having to scream/belt/show-off your God-given voice. And to think that Karen never really wanted to be a singer is unthinkable!! Thank God they noticed and shared with the world this silky smooth, seemingly effortless talent that Karen possessed. I must admit, I've watched a few documentaries about her life and struggles. It's difficult to watch someone that ill (not playing the victim for attention) and the pain she felt emotionally. Not to diminish her talent as a superb drummer, also!!! Those little arms/hands of hers could fly across a drum set w/o missing a beat!

    Karen...the voice of an angle

    Publicity materials for the album said that this song was a tribute to Karen Carpenter, possibly because of the way Madonna sings it. Madonna said of the singer: "Karen Carpenter had the clearest, purest voice. I'm completely influenced by her harmonic sensibility."

    Karen...the voice of an angle

    It's hard to pick/choose favorites....but here's a few of mine. The subtle smoothness in her voice just melts me. Her voice was like a living instrument.

    80s New Wave

    I know this thread is about the music, but it's the HAIR that I can't get over (especially that video). And to think my hair back then is "almost" reminiscent of theirs!!! But gotta admit, the music, clothes, hair (people in general)....were so much more interesting than what's happening now. Guess I'm getting old(er).? Fuk it. I'm going bleach some of my hair and cut me a mullett!!!

    80s New Wave

    So many from that era that were superb. Way too many to list all, so here's a few that come to mind. ABC (my all time favorite 80's/new wave band) Depeche Mode, Tears For Fears, Simple Minds, When In Rome, The Human League, New Order, The Cure, Erasure, Bananarama........plus MANY OTHERS that were mentioned above.

    Michael Jackson

    Me too!!!
  19. I don't know all of them...but many. The more memorable ones for me are: DAD (of course), Live & Let Die, For Your Eyes Only, A View To A Kill, Nobody Does It Better. Oh, @Jazzy Jan I totally forgot about that song (If You Asked Me To)....I seem to remember the Celine version more than Patti's.

    Why Janet doesn't fill in for Michael (or LaToya)...?

    Now when I think of "Only Time", I'm wanting to change the lyrics to: "who can say why my nose bleeds"....or....."who should say I should smoke weed"....
