100 Words on "Calling Occupants of Interplanetary Craft" by The Carpenters

My best friend George will invariably put this song on whenever I see him, and I would make fun of it a little, but in the light of all this ABBA worship I have going today, I must recognize the singular wonder of “Calling Occupants of Interplanetary Craft (The Recognized Anthem of World Contact Day)” by The Carpenters. Sure, we may want life to be like “Dancing Queen” or realize it is as plastic and sleazy as Steely Dan, but our hearts surely are with skinny-old Karen, looking out with glazed eyes to the cosmos, offering we are your friends.
