The Carpenters were an American vocal and instrumental duo consisting of siblings Karen and Richard Carpenter. With their light, airy melodies and meticulously crafted, clean arrangements, the duo stood in direct contrast with the excessive, gaudy pop/rock of the '70s; yet they became one of the most popular artists of the decade, scoring 12 Top Ten hits, including three number one singles.

    Long ago, and, oh, so far away
    I fell in love with you before the second show
    Your guitar, it sounds so sweet and clear
    But you're not really here, it's just the radio
    Don't you remember, you told me you loved me baby?
