Top of the World
Lynn Rush has Musical Mondays on her blog, and she asked her readers what their favorite songs are.
Well, to me, picking a favorite song is like picking a favorite child.
BUT, there is one song that I've loved since I heard it several years ago.
I believe I once heard vocalist, Natalie Maines, describe the song "Top of the World" (by the Dixie Chicks -- yes, the Dixie Chicks) as a song that's lyrics are told from the point of view of a man who has died. It's about lamenting missed opportunities and the crushing feeling of regret.
Wow. What an upper for a Monday, huh?
