This is a contrast song to Superstar. This is the groupie girl who sang in Superstar. The lyrics have humor, but Richard does nothing to bring the song to life. At least Karen adds her talent to the bckground vocals.
Gave it 2 stars. So many other songs are so much Better. I do like the electric piano or organ part the way it speeds up some half way through with that beat....."do you ever think you'll....la/de/da...etc. "ever get it together...and then the harmony. It's just a very odd/ball song, but likeable.
Cs humour on an album again. When me dad heard this song he said I outta take the lp back to the shop as it sounded like it had a fault...He never did understand the Cs genius.....He was a big Seekers/Jim Reeves fan...5 s
The song is a bit too corny. I feel the album would have fared better with another Karen vocal instead of this song.
What I do like about the song is the eerie harpsichord sound and the somewhat experimental vocal harmonies between Karen and Richard. The song's musical arrangement is really excellent - but still not a favorite.

Don't be too harsh guys...at least it's kinda funny!
In defence of this quirky little tale, remember that Rich was hugely influenced by the Beatles who, if they'd come out with something similar on the White Album, would TOTALLY have got away with it! "Druscilla" is just the Carpenters attempt to write an "Eleanor Rigby"...their mission to break some moulds and be a bit different in the face of growing criticism about their goody-goody image.
That said, let's face it, it backfired somewhat! Could you ever really love [this song], ever really care [about it], ever really get it together....."NO (no)". Just kidding!
