"Close to you", Karen Carpenter--I use to sing this to my daughter and substitue "boys" for "girls" in the lyrics... love this song.

Karen Carpenter, 1950-1983 She had the best voice. I still sing along to her music. A Mid West girl who made it big and was pressured to lose weight. (She must have been a size 6 at the most.) You're missed Karen!

July 25th (1970) The Carpenters, Close To You. The Carpenters started a four week run at No.1 on the US singles chart with '(They Long To Be) Close To You'. The first of three US No.1's and 17 other Top 40 hits. The song was written in 1963 by Hal David and Burt Bacharach and was first offered to Herb Alpert, who said he didn't feel comfortable singing the line 'so they sprinkled moon dust in your hair'. http://www.thisdayinmusic.com
