220px-Horizon_(Carpenters_Album)#9 – The Carpenters – “Please Mr. Postman” – (1975)

If you ever go to a garage sale, among the pile of Lawrence Welk and Herb Alpert records, there is bound to be at least one Carpenters album. I don’t care for their music, but this cover of The Marvelettes’ 1961 classic is great. It has a wonderful over-produced pre-synth keyboard sound. It’s just solid pop music.
