The Carpenters have been one of my favourites since I was a kid - I had the greatest hits on cassette (!) as a kid and would listen to it on repeat for hours... years! My favourite was always 'Calling Occupants of Interplanetary Craft' so you can expect the notes for that at some point! :)

'Close to You' is one of The Carpenter's most popular hits and its a lovely tune to play - I hope you enjoy the letter notes below :)
