Out of the Closet

Yes, I admit it: I'm a huge fan of the Carpenters, and have been since age seven when I went with my folks to the Hearnes building to see the Carpenters live in concert. I can sing along with all the songs, all the lyrics, all the instrumental solos, all the harmonies, on all the albums.

Karen Carpenter--the "girl drummer" with the voice that came straight from the gods--was my hero for many years.


So today it's Monday, and all morning it's looked like it might rain.

"Rainy Days and Mondays," a song written by Roger Nichols and Paul Williams, was on the album "Carpenters," which came out in 1971; the single was one of the Carpenters' numerous gold records, and the album went four-times multi-platinum in the United States.
