..when you put a cup in the line of sight from the speaker and you can hear the difference in the soundwave coming from that direction .. they are kinda like ear-aches.

As a kid I loved that song, Karen could sing about aliens and she'd still draw a crowd!

Wonderful voice. Perfect pitch. Richard was really never properly recognized for his arranging talents.
No need to throw an extra steak on the grill. She wouldn't eat it.

In the late 80s, I got to see "Superstar: The Karen Carpenter Story," Todd Haynes's docudrama, with Karen and Richard portrayed by Barbie and Ken dolls. It was the first time I'd heard "Rainy Days and Mondays" since it was new, and listening to it knowing what ultimately happened to her made a lasting impression.

(1) Find the online biographies/discographies of Karen Carpenter and correlate recording and live performance dates with where she was with her eating disorder. She was up and down with it.

(2) Look and listen to audio recordings and videos and see if you can see a pattern. I think I do.

I agree. In this video she definitely is sounding very good and she does not look thin either.
