@Jayson... That's pretty classless. Besides, Mama Cass did not choke on a sandwich. She died from a heart attack
A beautiful rich and poetic voice that will stand the test of time. Simply amazing!
If Karen carpenter had eaten mamma cassie' s sandwich, they would both still be alive today. Lol
While Karen Carpenter's voice will ring on throughout the ages, I can't help but think that she was taken from us way too soon...
Rainy days and Mondays do get me down but that's not today . But that is not today in Pittaburgh on may 9 2014 it is 70 and not a cloud in the sky.
No one compares to Karen Carpenter. She was the voice of her generation.
Fantastic sublime and utterly the most beautiful voice ever

No one ever will compare to Karen. Carpenter. No one.
Great music from an era that produced the best songs ever
If there has been a finer voice to walk this earth then I haven't heard it yet. Karen carpenter is magnificent
This song is romantic dedicated to me and my girlfriend but i love this song
Love it
This song makes me feel like I'm 5 years old again singing along with Karen. Beautiful voice! Sadly missed!
Love the carpenters! Why do I never hear the on the radio?
Her voice was so amazing - so sad that we lost her too soon.
I love you Karen!!!
Her voice always makes me feel so sad about her senseless death. What a loss!
I love it
Captivating: ) Timeless!
Great memories of a time past

The masters of mellow. Always, always happy to listen to thier music and take a trip back in time. Things may not have been perfect them but they sure beat the present.

I fell in love with Carpenters since the 1st time I heard them!!!!! My fav is Goodbye to love.
The Carpenters NEVER made a bad song. Sweetest voice ever. They knew how to make songs.
its great to have a place to go and get the real music and yet it bring back those time of childhood when life was so much easer thank you pandora

Hey Kevin Parker, so right about Goodbye to Love, but ker1010 you just keep dreamin'

Nothing around today like the Carpenters. I was 16 when this one came out and it still sounds great and brings back fond memories.
Thanks Karen & Richard! Sure miss you guys.
the Carpenters never got there due. This and 'Goodbye to love' just outstanding
It seems after my significant other broke it up with me I'm feeling so different about falling in love again. Yet I hope and I believe there is someone who truly will love me for who I am and not use me again, ever.
One of my favorite songs of all time by any artist!
To a 15-year old in 1971, this was the epitome of sad love songs. Break-up music supreme.
