You’re on top of the world and you can’t get any higher

On Top of the World – Cheap Trick (1978) 44.1kHz/24bit FLAC Remaster HD Video ~MetalGuruMessiah~

“On Top Of The World” was released on Cheap Trick’s third studio album, Heaven Tonight, which was released in 1978. The album was remastered and released with bonus tracks on Sony’s Epic/Legacy imprint in 1998.

I bought two of my four favorite Cheap Trick (In Color and Heaven Tonight….getting the debut and Dream Police soon!) albums a few days ago in 44.1kHz/24bit flac from HDtracks: http://www.hdtracks.com/ I’ve been wanting to do some more Cheap Trick videos and decided to give the more obscure “On Top Of The World” a shot….the performance video I used had such awful audio that I had a harder time than usual syncing it up to the studio track. I made exactly one edit and render and (though there are a few minor issues) and here it is…..”On Top Of The World”! Enjoy.

The album cover features lead singer Robin Zander and bassist Tom Petersson.

Heaven Tonight is considered Cheap Trick’s best album by many fans and critics. While their debut album Cheap Trick showed the band’s darker, rawer side and In Color explored a lighter, more pop-oriented persona, Heaven Tonight combined both elements to produce a hook-filled pop-rock album with an attitude. Popular songs from this album include the anthemic “Surrender”, “Auf Wiedersehen”, the title track, and a cover of The Move’s “California Man”.

Heaven Tonight is also known as the first album ever recorded with a 12-string electric bass.

[Lyrics]
You’re on top of the world
On top of the world and you can’t
Get any higher-You’re on top of the world
You’re on top of the world tonight
It wasn’t easy- it was hard as hell
You didn’t get luck in a wishin’ well
Never worked so hard- had so much pain
Wouldn’t change for anything
Learned love from a movie screen
He was tough, she was wild at fifteen
Quit school and had no dreams
Wasn’t going very far
Then he got religion and she got a god
It’s on her back and it’s in his job
And it costs lots of money, honey- oh, no
Breakdown nearly every day
Shoulda known- couldn’t get away
Got lucky with the girl next door
She was lonely and didn’t care
She was young, she was dark, she was fair
Wrapped herself around you with her stare
You’d explode if she would touch you there
Touch you there- touch you there
Tonight, tonight-tonight-tonight
You’re on top of the world
On top of the world and you can’t
Get any higher
You’re on top of the world
You’re on top of the world tonight
(Can you hear me, can you see me) You’re on top of the world tonight
(Can you hear me, can you see me) You’re on top of the world tonight
(Can you hear me, can you see me) You’re on top of the world tonight
(Can you hear me, can you see me) You’re on top of the world tonight
