She looks really fat in this video.

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.

^ c.f. - Christopher Cross gets 5 Grammys in 1979, then MTV comes along in 1981 and it doesn't matter how good you sound if you look dorky.

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

Lose some weight fatty!

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.

Her music was as fulfilling as her typical meals.

Why all the hate on Karen Carpenter in the comments? Woman had mad skills as a drummer and singer.

Because she had the audacity to die as the result of an eating disorder. Flawed celebrities deserve nothing but spite. ~

I totally agree with you kingarthur, she was a beautiful and talented lady.

she gets a lot of love in the record store i work at :)

Some really vicious and mean comments here. Especially for a video so full of joy.

Enjoy - 2012-04-22

Well I never heard of Karen Carpenter so I'm going to hate all I want.

asian hick - 2012-04-22

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.
