#MicroblogMondays: Rainy days and Mondays

Because it's been one of those days... :p

Because it really IS a rainy day AND a Monday. ;)

Because it popped into my head.

Because even though it's generally thought of as a "downer" song, it does include hopeful notes: "Funny but it seems I always wind up here with you... nice to know somebody loves me..." and "What I feel has come and gone before... no need to talk it out, we know what it's all about..."

Because I couldn't think of anything else for a #MM post. ;)

Because it was a great excuse (as if an excuse is ever needed) to search YouTube and listen to the magnificent voice of the late great Karen Carpenter. :)  Such an amazing talent, so sadly missed. :(

  1. I was just singing this song earlier today, too! Thanks for looking up the link! It was a rainy (and windy and chilly) Monday in this neck of the woods too.

  2. Well, it was a rainy day here too, although it’s Tuesday. Gosh, Barry last week, the Carpenters this week, what a walk down my memory lane! I might just pull the old cassette tapes out, dust them off and play them again.
    I agree with you, her talent was amazing, and I loved her voice. Such beautiful songs.

    1. Haha!! Yes, I seem to have a mellow 70s vibe going on here lately, don't I??! Need to find some punk or New Wave to liven things up a bit, lol. ;)

  3. PBS just ran a special on Karen Carpenter. Still makes me sad. Loved that contralto voice.

  4. One of my favorite songs, one of my favorite artists. I used to sing her songs all the time as a teenager.
