Karen Carpenter would’ve been 69 today – celebrating her life with some upbeat Carpenters tunes
It’s been 36 years since the most golden voice in pop music left our world, but love for Karen Carpenter remains alive in our hearts.
I grew up, a gay little boy, listening to her records – they just spoke to me.
So when she died on February 4, 1983, I was numb for days.
But instead of feeling sad, I’ve decided today to pay tribute to Karen with some upbeat numbers from her expansive catalog.
