Carpenters - Top Of The World (Summer Mix 2012)
The Carpenters were brother and sister Richard and Karen Carpenter, and this song was originally a hit back in December 1973, reaching #1 in Canada, Australia and the U.S. and #5 in the UK singles chart. The track featured on the album A Song For You.
The duo never originally intended to release the track as a single at all, but after country singer Lynn Anderson reached #2 in the U.S. Country Singles chart with her cover version in the early summer of 1973, they decided to release a new version of the album track as a single.
