1970: The Carpenters' "Close to you" was # 1 this weel




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!


"Close to you" was their first # 1 song and became one of the biggest hits of the 1970's.


Have you listened to the radio lately? It is still one of the most requested pop songs on the radio.


According to songfacts, "Close to you" was recorded by a couple of artists before The Carpenters.

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!
