Anderson’s Last No. 1 Song As a Solo Artist
Bill Anderson recorded the song that became his last number one on the charts as a solo artist in 1973. That song was the one entitled “World of Make Believe” which the singer has penned, himself. For a period of one week, the single stayed atop the US Billboard Hot Country Singles and Canadian RPM Country Tracks charts. All in all, it spent twelve weeks on the country chart. The song appeared on four various albums of Anderson namely Bill (1973), Live From London (1975), Greatest Hits 2 (1997), and 20 Greatest Hits (2000).
Wrapped Up in a World of Make Believe
In this song, the narrator describes the kind of world he wants to share with his lover. A world where the two of them could completely exchange the greatest love they can ever have. The tune mentions of dreamy things that could probably take place in that world. For instance, each time the phone rings, it’s deemed that she’s the one calling. Whenever there’s a knock on the door, it’s her coming home to be with him. Everything will just be about the two of them. Although his mind is full of pretentions, he is likewise hopeful that those will come true. After all, as the lyrics say, “faith can move mountains, and behind the darkest cloud the sun can shine”.
