In early February 1983, I remember landing late one night in Mexico City. I saw on the TV the awful news that Karen Carpenter had died in LA. I was stunned.
It's still hard to believe that Karen Carpenter died so many years ago.
My favorite Carpenters songs were "Close to you", "I Need To Be In Love" and "Goodbye to love".
Later, we learned that Karen had some serious problems.
I saw this video of their Japan tour and it shows a fun side of Karen. She is singing in Japanese with some local girls! It was great!
We miss Karen Carpenter. Her songs are still so good!
