Happy 65th Birthday, Karen Carpenter: 10 Times She Blew Our Minds

2 March 2015 12:43 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Just like me, you long to be close to Karen Carpenter, the legendary vocalist who would've turned 65 today. Yes, that's right: It's only now that Karen Carpenter, who died 32 years ago, would've been a senior citizen. It's impossible to over-celebrate this woman's contributions to popular music. With her brother Richard and his brilliant arrangements, Karen Carpenter left a legacy of beautiful, palpably emotional music that felt both vulnerable and steely. Her delicate enunciation was a trademark, but the brutal resonance of her smooth alto was always her most beguiling quality. She's the rare singer who felt more emotional the more she was note-precise. A sterling and timeless talent. Let's revisit ten times she blew our minds.  1. The isolated vocals of "Close to You" will make you shiver.  Yes, Whitney Houston's isolated vocals on "How Will I Know" are also a fabulous treat, but there is something about Karen Carpenter »

Glee Recap: Bacharach to the Future

6 February 2015 8:08 PM, PST | | See recent news »

Mercedes Jones may or may not be the truth, but she sure as heck spoke it in this week’s installment of Glee. And we can sum up her testimony in a simple mathematical equation: Rachel Berry + Broadway = Endgame.

No disrespect to those who ship Klaine or Brittana or Samcedes or even Samchel (a mashup moniker that makes me a little queasy every time I type it). But as the show sails into the midway point of its sixth and final season, I’m most interested in seeing the original members of New Directions stay true to their career goals »
