11 July 2023 - Carpenters - Calling Occupants Of Interplanetary Craft

This might be the biggest WTF song the Carpenters ever did.  A cover of a Klaatu... uh, classic,   It was a minor hit for Klaatu in 1976, and a slightly less minor hit for the Carpenters in 1977.   

Also, it's The Recognized Anthem Of World Contact Day.  No, seriously, the Carpenters used that tagline.  They were then repeatedly asked when World Contact Day was, not realizing that it was a direct reference to a lyric in the song, apparently.
