She looks really fat in this video.
John Holmes Motherfucker
I saw a Public TV special about the Carpenters, and it changed my view of them.
When you see her perform, you realize that Karen was not a terribly pretty girl. She was a band geek with an overbite, made up to look like a vapid sex symbol. I don't think she would have made it in the industry today. Ever see one of those Time/Life infomercials for compilations from the 50s, 60s, 70s? Not pretty. The pop stars of the era were not great looking people compared the bland and beautiful artists of today who need to look good in the video. I think this is why music sucks these days. They're not picking them for how they sound.
It's not my thing, so I'm not going to to argue the merits, but I promise you, the music of the Carpenters is played and remembered by millions of people who don't come to sites like this.

She tried so hard to look like a drumstick, and it killed her.

spend a lifetime making music, only be remembered for how you died
Well, I wouldn't exactly call the work of The Carpenters a legacy of timeless music. Disposable pop doesn't have much of a shelf life.

Why all the hate on Karen Carpenter in the comments? Woman had mad skills as a drummer and singer.
Well I never heard of Karen Carpenter so I'm going to hate all I want.
I really doubt she's going to read the comments, guys.
(Because she's dead.)

Recently I saw a 7 year old kid tear it up on drums. Between that and Karen Carpenter, no drummer anywhere has any excuse for being bad.

I love that everyone that has ever been in a 70's variety show seems to be oblivious to how horrible variety shows are.
