    I don’t remember this one. I bet it was after Star Trek aired the first time. I like Rainy Days and Mondays.

    It’s funny; one of my best friends in undergrad was a huge Carpenters fan. When she told me that, I replied that I LOVED “Calling Occupants” but no other Carps songs really worked for me. “Calling Occupants,” of couse, was the only Carps song she did NOT know.

    We were able to remain friends anyway. :-)

    @Cap J: Do post a link if you find it! I have never heard the original.

    It’s surprising (to me, at least) that the Carpenters covered it only a year after it was released. Theirs is the better known version, of course.

    @Cap J: Thanks for the links! Wow, I really like the original version—even more than the one the Carpenters did. (Does that make me a bad person?)
