"Super Star" as written by Leon Russell, Bonnie Bramlett and Delaney Bramlett....
Long ago, and, oh, so far away
I fell in love with you before the second show
Your guitar, it sounds so sweet and clear
But you're not really here, it's just the radio

Don't you remember, you told me you loved me baby?
You said you'd be coming back this way again baby
Baby, baby, baby, baby, oh baby
I love you, I really do

Loneliness is such a sad affair
And I can hardly wait to be with you again
What to say to make you come again?
Come back to me again and play your sad guitar

Don't you remember, you told me you loved me baby?
You said you'd be coming back this way again baby
Baby, baby, baby, baby, oh baby
I love you, I really do

Don't you remember, you told me you loved me baby?
You said you'd be coming back this way again baby
Baby, baby, baby, baby, oh baby
I love you, I really do

    General CommentSigh, this song reminds me of a boy I went out with who left, promising he'd come back and he never did. I listen to this song and I feel so haunted whenever I hear it like I knew exactly what Karen Carpenter might have felt. Who knows? She might have sang it out of personal experience.

    General CommentA truly great love song. Sonic Youth did a kick-a** cover of this one, check it out if you get the chance.

    General CommentI didn't hear the cover. But then again, I love the originals more than the cover because they ARE the original.

    I can relate to this song. I used to crush Liam Gallagher from Oasis... and I still love him! :)

    General CommentI have no problem with Sonic Youth because they have some good stuff out there, and are sincere fans of the Carpenters... however, their version could have been done by anyone. Thurston just talks his way through the song and they added some static in the background.

    General CommentActually, this is a cover of a Delaney & Bonnie song. And I think that the Sonic Youth cover pales in comparison to this version. You want to hear a good cover of the song, listen to Luther Vandross' version.

    Anyway, back to the point of this website. The song was originally titled "Groupie", which I think is somewhat self-explanatory with the lyrics. For example, just look at handsdown4beatles' comment.
