Ok, Confession time. She didn’t exactly nominate me, she left it an open nomination, but I fancied doing it so I have taken up the baton.

 

So the Rules:

1 Thank the person who nominated you.
2 Share one of your favourite song/lyrics one at a time for three days.
3 Nominate three other bloggers each day.

 

As many of you know, I have a taste for the Old-Fashioned, those golden oldies of music (and Film) and I toyed with the idea of choosing some more modern songs for this challenge…..But then I remembered I don’t like any modern songs, so here is one of my all time favourites.

Carpenters – Top of the World – 1972

 

The Lyrics:

Such a feelin’s comin’ over me
There is wonder in most everything I see
Not a cloud in the sky
Got the sun in my eyes
And I won’t be surprised if it’s a dream

Everything I want the world to be
Is now coming true especially for me
And the reason is clear
It’s because you are here
You’re the nearest thing to heaven that I’ve seen

I’m on the top of the world lookin’ down on creation
And the only explanation I can find
Is the love that I’ve found ever since you’ve been around
Your love’s put me at the top of the world

Something in the wind has learned my name
And it’s tellin’ me that things are not the same
In the leaves on the trees and the touch of the breeze
There’s a pleasin’ sense of happiness for me

There is only one wish on my mind
When this day is through I hope that I will find
That tomorrow will be just the same for you and me
All I need will be mine if you are here

I’m on the top of the world lookin’ down on creation
And the only explanation I can find
Is the love that I’ve found ever since you’ve been around
Your love’s put me at the top of the world

Sunday Morning Happy Music.

The last few days I have been sharing a few of the songs I have on my Ipod’s Happy playlist.

I firmly believe that music is a wonderful therapy for the mind and the soul.

For me, If I a feeling a little bit sad or low, I often find that music can be just what I need to shift that mood and put me back on a more positive path.

Of course, the loving support of friends and family is also a wonderful thing at those times.

Here is a Song that always helps put me in a good mood. It is a positive song with an upbeat rhythm and it is also has one of the best female voices ever.

I also think of it as a semi-religious song, so quite suitable for a Sunday.

Carpenters: Top of the World.

 

What ever you are doing today, I hope you feel on top of the world and have a great Sunday.
