I wish that Karen were still alive today so they could re-record this truly great musical masterpiece. I think they could have done even more with it than they did back then, as Nowadays is just a great all around song in my opinion, because of various factors. First, the time signature bouncing back and forth from 4/4 to 6/4 and back again. Plus, the lush vocals and the overall texture of the song I find just jazzy and appealing. Good job!

This is easily my favorite song from this album. It has a great sense of energy about it. The song was written by Neil Young who happens to be one of my alltime favorite singer/songwriters.
Richard's keyboard work accented by Karen's drumming is outstanding. The musicianship on the song is amazing for a first album. Karen and Richard went all the way with this one. I love the blending of Karen and Richard's voices in the chorus and harmony part. Out of this world.
The song is somewhat folk with a jazz and pop/rock influence. Definitely not your typical Carpenters I think that's why I like it so much.
