I know this song as well. I don't really have much to say about this. Were they angling to get a Bond Theme? It needs to be more epic if they were.
I kinda like it. When listening to it it's the 70s again and endless summer and I got the taste of cheap ice cream in my mouth.I wish I had a car so I could listen to it while driving.
"Superstar" by The Carpenters. I suspect this might be Scabby's. It's acceptable. Having said that, Sonic Youth did an absolutely extraordinary cover of this, and it's far, far better than the original. They took an MOR standard and turned it into something genuinely haunted.
What is the point of this? Indeed, I recognize this is the Carpenters, and it is all fine and okay. But surely there must have been some less bland selection available? My grandmother would love this, and when it comes to music, that is generally not a good sign.
Pleasant, but unremarkable. I do have a sneaking soft spot for this sort of thing though. Worthwhile if only for the fact that I've now heard the rather good Sonic Youth version as mentioned by Laz.
