Time is all around us and everywhere and it’s never ending so grab on while you can and give what you have and take what you can get. It’s all a loop so it’ll be back around even if you aren’t so sure. It will. Promise. You won’t know yourself. As they say. It’ll be […]
Richard Carpenter, Time (1987) I recently shared a photo of this album on Facebook and a clip of that duet where Richard tried replacing Karen by getting Dusty Springfield to sing.
