(Want You) Back In My Life Again  performed by  The Carpenters  (1981)
Composed by Richard Carpenter
Arranged by Richard Carpenter
From: USA
Recommended by scrubbles [profile] on Thursday 13th January 2005

One of the last Carpenters singles from their final studio album. I find this sweet 'n perky song strangely compelling, since it shows Richard and Karen Carpenter awkwardly trying to adjust their wholesome image to an early '80s synth pop template. Karen's voice is so processed and overdubbed that she blends in seamlessly with the synth-heavy backup -- still, the effect isn't cheezy but full and lucious. Knowing that Karen was slowly dying during this time makes this tune odder still.

from Made In America, available on CD (A&M)
