Artist: The Carpenters

Album: Passage

Appears On: The Opposite Of Smoke Is Egg Whites, Dub Club - John - Space Jamz

Song Notes: The Opposite Of Smoke Is Egg Whites: This might be the only chart single (#32 in the US; top 10 in the UK), on here, though it's also one of the more obscure songs; few people seem to remember it. It's a cover of the Klaatu song, and appeared on The Carpenters' Passage. I always thought that the Carpenters were rather unfairly maligned—they really did have some great songs. In fact, one of the things I liked about Superstar: The Karen Carpenter Story was how it treated the Carpenters like real people, and talented ones at that. (The fact that it had a bunch of Carpenters music in it was pretty keen, too. Also the Barbie Doll thing.) In a way, I hope people listen to the disc before checking the tracklisting, just to avoid the baggage that the name "Carpenters" carries of Square Pop For Then People—I hope people give this song a fair shake. - Rev. Syung Myung Me
