Sitting On Top of the World
Release A Day #5
I wasn’t planning on visiting any covers for quite some time, but when I was looking through a hard-drive for something else to post today I encountered this video from the Philadelphia Folk Festival in 2014 and just have to pass this one along. The smile this brought to my face is just too good to not want to share. I’ll be back to the original compositions tomorrow but this is just too much fun to pass by.
Written by Ray Henderson with lyrics by Sam Lewis & Joe Young in 1925.
I would love to see the looks on all of their faces if they could see a circus aerialist singing their song while performing aloft.
I have to say I’m particularly proud of my kazoo break.
