What is Karen Carpenterís best vocal performance?
 
What is Karen Carpenter’s best vocal performance?

There are too many songs to choose from but only had 10 spaces.

Voted for Superstar.
However, if I'd had the option I'd go for I Wont Last a Day Without You or Goodbye to Love.

Sorry about that. They had soo many hits. I wish I could redo the poll and get rid of a couple of my pics.

I almost picked Superstar, but choose Rainy Days instead because of the straightforward purity. I do believe Superstar tugs on the heartstrings more.

I don't know whether I'd consider it one of her best vocals, but I also have a really soft spot for Calling Occupants of...

I think this is the wrong poll. I mean, I feel it's impossible to choose a best performance. There are so many. So, maybe it would be easier to find a bad performance. Not that easy, of course, since she was a great performer. But probably there is one, hidden among so many great works.

I read her solo album was not good. Critics mentioned it was recorded with a wrong vocal range for Karen. So maybe the worst performance could be within that album, though I've never listened it.

I didnít like her version of Donít Cry For Me Argentina. I think the song didnít quite fit with her voice which is better at the lower register. But yeah, she gave one perfect performance after another.

Didn't like her "I'll never fall in love again" version. But not because just her performance but arrangements, the whole final product.

Agree. Anne Murray had perfect arrangement and made that song a hit.

I vote for "Rainy Days." The clarity and melancholy of her voice is perfectly suited for that song.

I always listen Ticket to Ride next to Rainy Days. Kind of a perfect couple of songs to me.
