Growing up, I listened to The Carpenters. Not because my parents did or because my friends were listening to the classic tunes at the time. My introduction to Karen Carpenters wonderful voice was purely coincidental. A family friend was talking about it in their living room when I was younger, and she played Mr. Postman. I could never get the tune out of my head. Then when I bought a little mp3 player nearly a decade ago, the free mp3 song was Yesterday Once More. My all time favourite from The Carpenters.
