Musical Monday: Top of the World

Musical Mondays



It's Monday.
It's raining.
Our dryer is broken... Mr. Art @ Home couldn't find any clean scrub bottoms...
....and I have no milk for my tea.
*perfect*

But I'm not going with the expected "Rainy Days and Mondays" by The Carpenters.  Oh, NO! I'm not.

I need something cheerful for this craptastic day!


"Top of the World"
The Carpenters
from the movie Dark Shadows, 2012

"Top Of The World"

Such a feelin's comin' over me
There is wonder in most every thing 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 comin' 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
Somethin' 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
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

I apologize if this song is stuck in your head for the rest of the day.  Not!  ;P

I certainly hope I can find something to write for My Happy List tomorrow.   :(

Until next time...

Blessings!
Ricki Jill

  1. That is one of my favorite Carpenter's songs!! I was in Boulder Colorado last week at NCAR....500 feet above the city and I was singing it to my kids. They thought I finally lost my mind....

  2. It seems to be a typical Monday. I just had to order $700 in tires for my vehicle. :( Here's to a better Tuesday! :)

  4. ARGH! Not the dryer!! That's as bad as the dishwasher, love the song and I hate to admit-I've watched that movie more times than is likely healthy. I just had a feeling today that something expensive was going to happen so I've opted to stay at home and sort of hide out.

    (Might have something to do with paying all bills online last night C:)

  8. LOL! I don't mean to laugh but the whole console TV, with the person in the gown just cracks me up! I hope your day turns around quickly!

  11. So you headed outside with your washboard and scrubbed clothes while belting out this song? Perfect!

  12. Haha, reveal yourself, tiny songstress! I loved that movie. Love the console tv, too. I found a Curtis Mathes pedestal console tv in a thrift store that actually still worked, but just could not justify bringing it home (even at the cheap price of $20). Now I regret that.

    I went to see The Conjuring over the weekend, so I've got a selection from THAT movie soundtrack up at my blog :)

  13. UGH!! Sounds almost as good as my day!! Woke up to no power, raining, had a check up appointment all the way in Louisville, got drowned running some errands there before appointment. Went early to appointment, just in case there were cancellations and get in early, no such luck, their power had been off and on, and my appointment was running an hour and a half minimum!! behind!!, just rescheduled and called it a total loss! waste of day, time, my life, gas and now have to go back!! good song choice, now I'll hear it all night! LOL, hope tomorrow is better for you and everyone!
