As much as I love the other parts of "Please Mr. Postman"... I do truly look forward to Karen's pronunciation of those two words.
Another song in which I enjoy and look forward to Karen's word phrasing is on "Love Me For What I am" at around 41 seconds into the song she rolls the first "R" in the word rearrange (and she does it ever so smooth and gentle) and then at around 1:39 in the song I really like her pronunciation of the word "only"... another outstanding (and very powerful song from "Horizon")... and of course this song also sports an utterly fantastic Tony Peluso guitar solo.
As for Karen and Richard's speaking voices. I feel they have both assimilated quite well to the Southern California dialect... although you can hear that east coast sound in Karen's voice when she really gets into her conversation. I have always enjoyed listening to Karen speak. She was a fantastic conversationalist. she had a very lively and animated way of telling a story. she's one of those speakers who is naturally the life of the conversation.

Interesting that you can hear Karen switching into the East Coast sound when she really gets into her conversation! I think that's just natural and I like it! I'd like to be able to comprehend those nuances.. Like you, I really enjoy listening to Karen speak. But the same I love watching her. Her mimics and gestures are very expressive and lively.
Don´t worry that it´s not good enough for anyone else to hear. [br]Just sing, sing a song. [br]
Yes indeed, Karen (nd Richard, too) were/are great entertainers who among other things know how to put on an appealing show, and I mean that in a very positive sense. I also noticed, from the first time I heard it, the roll of the "R" in rearrange in "Love Me For What I Am." Interesting (I know I am getting off topic now) that the writer of the song, a good friend of this site and an outstanding singer herself as well, is east coast all the way.
