I never thought I would have to defend easy listening music. I never thought people would be so offended by music that doesn’t pressure people to excesses of anything except a chilled out state. Still, this isn’t about defending anything. The Carpenters rocked … as in they were a very enjoyable music group. I enjoyed them immensely and a song like this is a good reason why. Good lyrical narrative, smooth vocals, sweet laid back melody and tune. Now I respect George Benson’s version and all, but this is just consummate easy listening perfection. The point is that the song helps you to take it easy. Enjoy.
