Richard Carpenter was 24, and younger sister Karen was only 20, when they recorded "Close to you" many summers ago.
It was another great song written by Burt Bacharach and Hal David, who also wrote songs for Dionne Warwick!
It became a hit when the song met Karen's beautiful voice and Richard's awesome arrangement!
It turned out to be one of the most popular songs of 1970 and the entire decade. It's still a popular selection in various radio formats, from oldies to Top 40 to soft-rock.
This is one of those pop songs that you need to download!
