Close to You is the second studio album by American duo The Carpenters, released on August 19, 1970. In 2003, the album was ranked number 175 on Rolling Stone Magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time. The album contains the hit singles "(They Long to Be) Close to You" and "We've Only Just Begun". The former was the duo's song that gained the Carpenters an international reputation for a decade.

Hurriedly put together in the wake of the success of the title song, and containing the follow-up hit "We've Only Just Begun," Close to You is a surprisingly strong album, and not just for those hits. Richard Carpenter's originals "Maybe It's You" and "Crescent Noon" are superb showcases for Karen Carpenter's developing talent, the latter a superbly atmospheric, hauntingly beautiful art song of the kind that Judy Collins was doing well at the time, and gorgeously arranged.

Just like me, they long to be Close to you. On the day that you were born The angels got together And decided to create a dream come true So they sprinkled moondust in your hair of gold And starlight in your eyes of blue. That is why all the girls in town (Girls in town) Follow you (Follow you) all around (All around) Just like me, they long to be Close to you. A-a-aaa A-a-a-a A-a-aaa. It stayed at number 1 for 4 weeks, and became the Carpenters' iconic song. Close to You is the second studio album by The Carpenters, released in August 1970. (They Long to Be) Close to You was the duo’s song that gained the Carpenters an international reputation for a decade. (They Long to Be) Close to You" Track Info.
