Please Mister Postman

This week, way back in 1975, The Carpenters were number one in the US with ‘Please Mister Postman’. A song originally recorded by The Marvelettes 14 years earlier – which also hit the top spot in the US charts.  Apparently an obscure quartet from Liverpool, called ‘The Beatles’ I believe, also recorded it, but failed to hit the same dizzying heights. I wonder whatever happened to them? Whilst we ponder on that one, here is the official video for the Carpenters version, featuring Richard and the much missed Karen on a day out in Disneyland.
