I got a room at the top of the world tonight

Eddie Vedder sings a Tom Petty cover “Room at the Top” at the 2018 Oscars as background for a montage of movie scenes in Memoriam of major entertainers departed in the past year.

I got a room at the top of the world tonight
I can see everything tonight
I got a room where everyone
Can have a drink and forget those things
That went wrong in their life…

I got a room at the top of the world tonight…
And I ain’t comin’ down, no I ain’t comin’ down
I ain’t comin’ down

  2. Every time they do these “In Memoriams” I sit there going, oh yeah, that one and that one and… Love Eddy Vedder and Tom Petty so putting them together in such a way, was a brilliant idea, Academy!
    Thanks for sharing that, David.
