Superstar (4:08)

Cover of Juno - Music From The Motion Picture

From Juno - Music From The Motion Picture and 13 other releases

The track was originally released as a b-side to the Delaney & Bonnie single “Comin’ Home” in December 1969, as “Groupie (Superstar)”.

It was covered by many artists, including Luther Vandross and Bette Midler, but most notably The Carpenters in 1971.

The Sonic Youth version (recorded in 1994 for the If I Were a Carpenter tribute album) is haunting and sad, carrying a completely different feel to the original. The original was sung from the perspective of a groupie after a one time fling - whereas the Sonic Youth version feels like grieving after the death of a loved one.
