Music: Carpenters

Every sha-la-la-la, every whoa-whoa, still shines...

Carpenters (absolutely not "The Carpenters") was a brother-and-sister pop duo, Karen and Richard Carpenter. Karen started out as the drummer but was gradually phased off the instrument once it became clear she had a superlative singing voice; Richard wrote the material, played piano and provided backing vocals.

They were active from 1969 to 1983, in which Karen died. During this time, they were prolific. They had numerous hits, only a few of which are commonly known to people who weren't there in The Seventies. Hits include "Close to You," "Sing," "Yesterday Once More," "We've Only Just Begun," and "Superstar."
