Rainy Days & Mondays

21 Mar

It may seem like too obvious a choice, but “Rainy Days and Mondays” is one of my all-time favorite songs.  Actually, except for a couple of misses, pretty much everything The Carpenters did falls into the all-time favorite category.

Karen’s voice is so rich, so sad and so moving.  And, really, who doesn’t like a girl drummer?  I was going to include a cover version here, to help try to avoid the obvious, but those really fall into two categories:  versions that aren’t nearly as good or versions that are done ironically.  And neither is good enough for Margauxville.

So…the original, here.  You may have it already, but regardless, it’s always worth a listen.  Especially on a rainy Monday.
