You need to understand, re: the GWay Carpenters cover – I was born in 1968. Somewhere, in the dim recesses of my brain, there are a LOT of Carpenters lyrics. (Them, Elton John*, and Paul Simon.)
So the fact that GWay not only warmed up singing Carpenters’ songs during the recording of The Black Parade, but decided to release one? I may never stop giggling.
*This is also why I have some VERY STRONG opinions about the all-star anniversary tribute to Goodbye Yellow Brick Road and how FOB covered the wrong song.
