Marvelettes: Mister Postman

Can you guess this piece? Here’s a hint: Not even severe weather can keep us from this music.

With the advent of e-mail, we now receive communications in a rather impersonal form, with perhaps the only human contact being the voice that proclaims “You’ve Got Mail.” But with letters came the interaction with the postman. And while many of us plead with our e-mail programs, it’s just not the same as the cries of “Please Mr. Postman.” Nearly a decade after the Marvelettes released “Please Mr. Postman,” the CARPENTERS “delivered” their own version of the song. Consisting of the siblings RICHARD AND CAREN CARPENTER, the song proved a hit for the CARPENTERS as well.
