Day 29 of the Song Challenge: A song that you remember from your childhood
“Top of the World” by The Carpenters
My class performed this song in fifth grade for our school’s foundation day. Whenever I hear this song, I remember the lyrics on cue, no matter how long it has been since I last heard it.
Years later, I would find out that it’s a song about being in love and the giddy, positive, top-of-the-world feeling it gives to lovers.
Until then, I thought it was talking about the thrill you get when riding the ferris wheel.
