With that said, the late Karen Carpenter was a much admired singer in spite of these issues I raise. In a 1982 interview, Michael Jackson once mentioned the Carpenters as an inspiration in his musical development. In spite of their funky visual performances, one can't underestimate the impact the Carpenters had on the music industry in the 1970's era.
I'm sorry, I've never observed the main singer not having a microphone during a performance prior to headsets so this clip is really freaky to me. They also took away her drum set leaving her arms to flop around like a rag doll.
Good music, freaky performance.
Very strange video calling upon the aliens to save earth,
"Calling Occupants of Interplanetary Craft"
Good song, but this isn't eye candy in spite of the pink garb and attempts at lighting. They essentially took away the Carpenter's original appeal by removing Karen from her drums.
