25. The Carpenters - (They Long To Be) Close To You

Found on: Close To You (1970)
Picked by: WA, SB, KT

I don't think dating someone who could actually attract both birds and celestial bodies to their person would be all that fun, but that's just me. The best part of this song, besides Karen's hot-tea-with-honey voice, is by far the "waaaaah-ah-ah-ah-ah" ending.

Why do birds suddenly appear
Every time you are near?
(still: Alfred Hitchcock's "The Birds")
Just like me, they long to be
Close to you.

Why do stars fall down from the sky
Every time you walk by?
(still: Rudolph Maté's "When Worlds Collide")
Just like me, they long to be
Close to you.

Hello. They are known as Carpenters, the official name (not THE Carpenters). Just wanted you to know. You may check Wikipedia. Thanks for letting me put my two cents in. Smile.

Don't forget the tinkling piano, and the loose yet tight horns in the bridge. All the best of the 70's.
