TIL of the movie Superstar: The Karen Carpenter Story. It portrays the last 17 years of singer Karen Carpenter's life, as she struggled with anorexia. Instead of actors, almost all of the parts are played by modified Barbie dolls. The "Karen" Barbie doll was whittled away to show the anorexia effect en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sup…

Does know the slow, soft pop song that sounds EXACTLY like Karen Carpenter singing. I could only catch the line "in your darkest hour" (or "in my darkest hour"). I think she sings something to the effect of 'when I see your face, i'll be your light'. I have Google every Carpenters song and cannot ID

Did Richard Carpenter or someone related to Karen Carpenter react to Sonic's hommage 'Tunic (Song For Karen)'?

I know he didn't quite understood what the band was trying to do when they covered "Superstar" for the tribute compilation "If I Were a Carpenter". Personally, I think it's one of the best covers there, along with Shonen Knife's cover of ''Top Of The World''. But I was wondering if he said anything about ''Tunic''. I imagine he could have easily thought the lyrics were in bad taste.

I recently went down a rabbit listening to Karen Carpenter. Damn, what a talent.

I kind of heard of the Carpenters in passing, and I knew Karen died from complications from Anorexia at 32. But I never really listened to their songs, until now.

Their cover of "Jambalay (On The Bayou)" is solid af. Kinda makes me want to drive a Chevy S10 down a country road in Louisiana, and she and her brother's vocals are a musical P&J sandwich.

The other song of theirs, "Touch Me When I'm Dancing" is solid as well, and I really enjoed it. I could tell in the video Karen looked frail due to her illness, but her voice is still smooth as butter.

Michael Jackson and Madonna had stated in the past that Karen Carpenter was a huge influence on them vocally, even Paul McCartney and Elton John said she was top notch

On of top, that girl could fucking hold her own on the kit!!

I wonder what her career would've looked like had she lived on through the 1980s onwards.

Seriously, what a talent.

Edit: Rabbit HOLE. lol

Karen Carpenter

TW: If talk about Anorexia or death bothers you click away.

I'm sure to many Karen Carpenter is a well known name. She was a successful singer in the 1970s who struggled with Anorexia. There's a lot her story with her ED starting in high school, her hiring a personal trainer to help her, then firing the personal trainer because she didn't like the positive results she was getting. Over time she began to eat less, and would offer food on her plate to others. Like Eugenia she refused to admit she was mentally ill.

By the early 1980s Karen would use laxatives and thyroid medication to keep her weight down. Even though her doctor found out and confiscated her medication her condition continued to deteriorate.

In 1982 she was admitted to Lenox Hill Hospital where she was given treatment, which was successful, but put strain on her heart due to years of improper diet.

On February 4th, 1983 Karen collapsed in her bedroom soon after waking up. When paramedics found her her heart was beating once every 10 seconds. She was pronounced dead at PIH hospital at 9:51 AM that morning.

Eugenia, you need long term help or this will happen to you. You can make the excuse that we're not doctors, BUT it doesn't take a doctor to see that your body is fighting for its life. You will not have a future if you do not seek help. That is what happened to Karen Carpenter. She ignored the problem for too long and she died at 32 years old.
