The music which makes me smile and hum

A Japanese blogger friend of mine from the English learning website had written about this lovely CD in her site. This afternoon, to tell you the truth, I dropped by at the CD shop just to check the Carpenters latest new album commemorating their 40th year since they formed a brother and a sister duo. I looked through the featured numbers and they are almost all the one I have. I really like Karen's singing. Her voice is really superb. Oh, where am I? Let me talk about the Carpenters some other time. Back to about this lovely CD.  While strolling around the aisles in the store, I've just found this lovely jacket illustrated by a famous Brazilian artist. Then it reminded me of a CD which my blogger friend was talking about. All the familiar songs are arranged into bossa nova sung by a woman and a girl. It's very soft and relaxing music. I like it and glad that I've found it today. You can try some of them from this site. I like "ABC" so much.

I love the picture on that jacket! So cute!

And I LOVE the Carpenters. It was so sad that she died of Anorexia, she had such a lovely voice!

Who doesn't like The Carpenters? "Close to You" is one of my all time favourite songs.

Just checking in to see if you are ok. You had told me that you had some things to take care of, and I just wanted to make sure everything was good with you. I hope you are well!

Dionne, thank you so much for keeping me in your mind. I'm really grateful for your kind words. I'm just all right. I still have several works to do after a workshop of our volunteer group last Saturday. I'm sure I'll be able to update my blog and visit my friends' sites soon. Have a nice weekend!
