Song of the Week

"Feeling Good" by Michael Buble`

I know that it hasn't been a full week yet, but when I decide what song I'm going to feature next, I sometimes have a hard time waiting until Monday... and this one's good!

Okay, I don't know why I've had such a resistence to this guy, but I just never really listened to him or gave him a chance. My first exposure to Michael was the opening scene to the movie "Down With Love" (which was hilarious but waaaaaay too much in the sex department.) Being the huge fan of Jazz that I am, I immediately loved the song and could've sworn that I knew that voice... I didn't, but I loved it. So I've been listening to alot of Buble` on the internet and came across THIS song. Gotta say that I absolutely LOVE it... as well as so many of his other songs! Finally, a purist... none of that Josh Groban crossover mess. I can't handle crossovers.... okay, unless it's 311.... or Fiona Apple.... or Panic at the Disco....mmmmmmm.... maybe I just don't like Josh Groban. (Strong possibility!) Anyway, I love this song for lots of reasons. First and foremost, how can you not listen to this song without "feelin' good"? I mean, come on, everything about this song screams SEXY, aka "feelin' good"! Am I right!?!?! And I am definitely NOT a dancer, but I really just want to get up and dance some sexy, booty-swingin' dance to this song. (Sorry for any disturbing images that I may have placed in your head.... ERASE!) And what's crazy is that it's not even the words that get me moving; they're innocent enough. It's purely a reaction to the music itself (which is proof that music is a powerful force!) It's everything from the grungey, dirty brass to the swingin' bass line to the clinking piano chords.... and lets not forget that voice! Owwwwch! SEXY! (All I'm sayin' is, John, come sing to me like that and I'll stop everything for you...) For those of you who know me well, you're probably shocked to hear me talk this way since my middle name is prude, but I'm sorry... blame it all on the song!

Whoa when I went back to the post page the background changed and the text is visible now! Guess it was slow the first time, haha I'm such a dork.

Well this is my 3rd comment so sorry, I hadn't actually read the post before my other 2 comments...I must say I have never heard this side of you Audrey! This is proof that music is some pretty powerful stuff, hahahaha :) I was totally swaying back and forth though it's a great song.
