  • I’ve posted in the RIP thread that it’s the 37th anniversary of Karen Carpenters death.
    I’ve always loved her voice and wondered what she could have done with her unique instrument and perfect pitch if she had sung more progressive songs rather than the contemporary ones she sang as part of the Carpenters. My favourite song is Superstar. The vocals in the verses are chilling; her pitching sublime and the gaps between the words as important in setting the mood as much as what she actually sings. Never been a fan of the chorus as it loses the mood set in the verses and goes more ‘poppy’, more Burt Bacharach, and squeezes words in, losing the gaps so wonderful in the verses.
    I’ve posted a vid of Karen’s version in the RIP thread, performed in 2019 by the Royal Philharmonic Orch using Karen’s original vocal tape, but I was surprised to discover that Superstar is not actually a Carpenters song; being written in 1969 for Rita Coolidge to sing. Interestingly, in Rita’s version, the chorus is better, as it remains in the mood of the verses with more space between the words.
    Have a look. Contrast & compare.

  • I stumbled upon a bachelorette party last night and my god- girls gone wild. I look over and one girl has her dress up and her shaved nether region out for all the world to see, then two girls got up on a table and starting grinding on each other and knocked over everyone’s drink with their asses! They were trying to get me involved, but I said no. All in all a wonderful night- now I can’t get this song out of my head.

  • I don’t know if you’ve noticed LuDux, but when you’ve posted a video recently, a whole load of script is being copied after it as well. I’ve quote replied in the one above and taken all the extra script out and the vid still seems to post OK.
