Overheard: Love Songs and Embalming Fluid…In Concert
“Why do birds suddenly disappear, every time, I get near…”:
ECM: Yeah, the Carpenters rule–Karen’s voice was amazing.
Anonymous friend: Yeah man, I hear they’re coming to my town soon for a concert.
For those not up on The Carpenters, Karen Carpenter (and, thus, The Carpenters) passed away nearly 30 years ago, meaning he’s going to be seeing Zombie Karen Carpenter who, I suppose it’s possible, still has a better voice than every pop ‘diva’ of the past 30 years.
