Today’s Holiday Tune: Karen Carpenter sings the gorgeous “Merry Christmas Darling”

http://cache.gawkerassets.com/assets/images/13242/2009/12/340x_karencarpenterxmas.jpgThis is, hands down, my favorite Christmas song – ever.

Merry Christmas Darling was written by Richard Carpenter and Frank Pooler was made a classic by the gorgeous delivery of the late, great Karen Carpenter who died in 1983.

The single of Merry Christmas Darling went to number one on Billboard’s Christmas singles chart in 1970, and did again in 1971 and 1973. It was then included in The Carpenters 1978 Christmas Portrait album and Karen performed it on their ABC Christmas special that year.

It just doesn’t get any better than this.

  1. Karen’s impeccable voice blows up the wattage with every song she sings…still!

  2. Tender and gorgeous as only Ms. Carpenter can do.
