Using my blog to try and make the world a better place. If I can help someone forget their troubles for a few minutes a day, it's all worth it.

Did you know:

The Carpenters weren't the first to record "Top Of The World". Lynn Anderson recorded it a year or two before. I heard it for the first time a few days ago on a country oldies station. It was just as good as The Carpenters' version - I almost like it a little better. Lynn's an old favorite of mine. I loved her voice and a few of her old hits. I wonder what she's been up to lately.

Good morning, Joe. I was never a fan of that song myself, nor of the Carpenters in particular. Maybe if I'd heard Lynn's version first...

Anyway, according to that great rumor mill, "The Web," Lynn Anderson, now 64, is still active, headlining live concerts at major casinos and performing arts centers, often with a symphony orchestra for backing. She was also a skilled horsewoman in her younger days, and maintains a program of theraputic horseback riding for troubled children.

What a world we'd live in, if everyone used their energy like she does!

I'm glad she's still around and doing well. She's one of my faves from back in the day.

I have a few of her LPs that I frequently play. I really enjoy her voice.
