You’ll Feel As If You’re On “Top of the World” with Lynn Anderson’s Song Cover

Lynn Anderson - Top Of The World
by

In this world full of problems, a Lynn Anderson Song would definitely make someone’s day better. Her songs have this sprinkle of magic that instantly transforms a frown upside down. 

And when she released her cover of the song ‘Top of the World’ by The Carpenters, she yet again put another touch of color in this bare-looking world. 

The song was originally written by Richard Carpenter and John Bettis in 1972. It was then released by the iconic pop duo ‘the carpenters’ in 1973, which turned out to be one of the greatest hits of all time, landing at no. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for two weeks.

But did you know that it was actually the ever-charismatic Lynn Anderson that prompted the Carpenters to release the new version of the song, which hit no. 1 on the charts? 

Yes, you’ve heard it right. The first release of the Carpenters for the ‘Top of the World’ song didn’t chart well the first time around. However, when Lynn Anderson released her cover version in 1973, it instantly became one of Lynn Anderson’s greatest hits, making the song land in various charts like Billboard Top 100, placing at no. 74 and US country single at no. 2.

Due to it, the Carpenters were motivated to re-release their song and remake it into something better. And due to that, the 2nd release landed not just on the top 10. But instead, it got the no. 1 spot for two weeks. 

The song is about being joyful despite knowing that sometimes in life, things wouldn’t go the way you want it to be. That despite what life throws at us, all we need is to persevere and live life as if we’re on ‘Top of the World.’

So, if you’re looking for a song to put a splash of color to your bare day, then you might want to check out Lynn Anderson’s amazing version of the song ‘Top of the World’ by the Carpenters. You may view it down below.
