    Default Carpenters Songs

    I like a lot of Carpenters' stuff.

    Her story is very sad though...dead at 32.

    Here's "I Won't Last A Day Without You"

    Yes, her story is very sad and tragic.

    The song of theirs which I like the most is We've Only Just Begun.

    Apparently, there was a TV show shortly after Karen Carpenter's death on which Richard Carpenter was a guest together with a comedian, who apparently was unaware that Karen had recently died. The topic earlier had discussed anorexia, and the comedian said "two ladies were walking through Hollywood when a very skinny woman walked past. One woman shook her head sadly and said 'that's anorexia nervosa'. The other woman said 'oh, Blanche, that's wonderful, you know EVERYONE in Hollywood'."

    There was apparently just a stunned and embarrassed silence.

    Yeah, I fancied Karen Carpenter when I was a teenager....I never went window shopping for her though.

    She was a beautiful lady (if Reg will permit me to say so) and she had a really lovely voice.

    She died of Anorexia Nervosa, a disease promoted by the evil so-called "fashion" industry.

    This is my favourite Carpenters song.



    At the time it was on the air, I fancied a blonde girl who always walked around barefoot.

    Anorexia Nervosa is much more complicated than that. To suggest that victims are influenced by fashion, to that extent is both an insult to them and demonstrates pathetic ignorance.

    Your own post demonstrates pathetic ignorance.

    The fashion industry, with its obsession with thin-as-possible models, is a major driver of anorexia in girls, as has been widely recognised.
