Late last night, I was browsing my news feed and one of my friends shared a Yukie Nishimura recording of “Close To You”, a Carpenters classic.
I liked her arrangement, which adheres to the original whimsical feel. I’ve always liked how this song tugged my heartstrings and I was glad I came across this piano version which inspired me to do my own arrangement.
I recorded this in one take.
My wife prefer Yukie’s version. What about you?
For reference, here’s the original Carpenters version.
