"Feeling Good" as written by and Anthony Newley Leslie Bricusse....
Birds flying high
You know how I feel
Sun in the sky
You know how I feel
Reeds driftin' on by
You know how I feel

It's a new dawn
It's a new day
It's a new life
For me
And I'm feeling good
I'm feeling good

Fish in the sea
You know how I feel
River running free
You know how I feel
Blossom on the tree
You know how I feel

It's a new dawn
It's a new day
It's a new life
For me
And I'm feeling good

Dragonfly out in the sun, you know what I mean, don't you know
Butterflies all havin' fun, you know what I mean
Sleep in peace when the day is done, that's what I mean
And this old world is a new world
And a bold world
For me
For me

Stars when you shine
You know how I feel
Scent of the pine
You know how I feel
Oh freedom is mine
And I know how I feel

It's a new dawn
It's a new day
It's a new life

It's a new dawn
It's a new day
It's a new life
It's a new dawn
It's a new day
It's a new life
It's a new life
For me

And I'm feeling good
I'm feeling good
I'm feeling so good
I feel so good

    General CommentNina Simone didn't sing a "version" of this song. It's her song. Muse and Michael Buble sang versions of it. Give her the credit deserves, she's an amazing soul singer, no one can a song better than the original.

    General CommentGreat song. This guy's music is really growing on me.

    About the song, it's pretty self-explainitory. He's singing about his new life, and how good he feels. Maybe a life-changing type thing. Nothings keeping him down. He has the world to explore.

    General CommentHah, oh, me, too. We've got this on our new in-store DVD on rotation, and it's just great.

    But is it just me, but is this clearly more Bond-inspired than 'Man From U.N.C.L.E.' ? Hell, if they'd do it, this would be a great bit to put into the newest flick.

    Oh, lord, help me. But I just thought of this: is this not an excellent theme to put in the back of one of those damned 'new medication will change your life' adverts?
    :snirk:

    "It's a new dawn, it's a new day, it's a new liiiiiiife. And I'm feeeeling ... gooooooood!"

    Man, I really can see it now. Let the countdown to the marketing commence.

    General CommentThe Muse version of this song (which is good!) was knocked off by an ad company for a coffee commercial when the band wouldn't agree to let them use it, so your fears have been realized in a way.

    General CommentActually, this song is already being used for commercials by ESPN (with permission) for the 2005 World Series of Poker. I personally feel that fits, as it has that sound of the old Vegas era a la Sinatra.

    General CommentI thought that this song was about the start of a new relationship. It's just simply saying that he's just told her how he feels and so now he has nothing to hide, and he's feeling alot better now.

    General CommentWell, it doesn't look like anyone is aware that this is not an original song by Bublé. This song was originally sung by Nina Simone in the 60s and I highly suggest you listen to it! Michael Bublé does a nice job covering it, but no one can sing it like Nina.

    General CommentNina Simone's version of the song is great, but not comparable to Michael Buble's version. They are both good in their seperate ways.
    I would have to agree with lilybear on the meaning. I suppose you could apply the meaning of this song however you want. It is very braud. Perhaps he has had a life changing experiance, perhaps he is in love, perhaps being in love is a life changing experiance for him. Regardless, this song just makes you feel good; it's easy to get into the groove of the beat, and the way he sings it is just catchy. Exactly what every good song should do.
