In 1978, while Karen and Richard were recording their first Christmas album, they also recorded several other tracks which were intended to have been released on a 10th-anniversary album. The album was never completed and the tracks were relegated to the vaults at A&M until 1989 when Richard finally completed the tracks and released them on the Carpenters album "Lovelines."

I'm not sure, but this may possibly be a work lead. I've always felt this was a song that would have worked perfectly on Karen's solo album, as well.

Says Richard: "Slow Dance" was recorded during the same session as was "Honolulu City Lights." I heard this song on Kristy and Jimmy McNichol's album and subsequently played it for Karen, who loved it. It was somehow reminiscent to both of us of a song from the sixties and though I had misgivings about the lyric being too "young" we nevertheless recorded it. I'm glad we did.

Slow Dance

It's a slow dance
Take a little time for some romance
Come a little closer baby, slow dance
Whisperin' the words I want to hear

It's been a long night
Now my head is on your shoulder and it's so right
Your sweet and gentle kisses on these closin' eyes
Tonight I will be dreaming of you

When I saw you for the first time
I never thought that this could be
I never thought you'd come my way
I never thought I'd hear you say "dance with me"

Now it's a slow dance

When I saw you for the first time
I never thought that this could be
I never thought you'd come my way
I never thought I'd hear you say "dance with me"

Now it's a slow song
Seems that I've been waiting for it so long
Waiting for this moment and someone like you
To make all my dreams come true

Someone like you, oh baby
Someone like you...

Someone like you, oh baby
Someone like you...
