Song Of The Day – (They Long To Be) Close To You by The Carpenters

Herb Alpert signed Karen & Richard Carpenter to his A&M Record label in 1969. For the first year they barely sold any records.  This song was intended as the follow up to Herb’s #1 hit “This Guy’s In Love With You.” Alpert recorded his own version of this song before giving it to The Carpenters. The rest is history…
