Nina Simone//Feelin' Good

Well, I for one am so, so happy that this day has finally come. Goodbye, Bush. Hello, Obama. We welcome you with open arms and a sincere desire for positive change.

I started thinking about which song would go well with this day a few weeks ago, and, after much deliberation, found what I believe is the perfect track: The High Priestess of Soul singing “Feelin’ Good.”

I think the lyrics and the musical tone of this song speaks for itself.

Feelin’ Good.mp3

Fish in the sea, you know how I feel.
River running free, you know how I feel.
Blossom in the tree, you know how I feel.
Its a new dawn.
Its a new day.
Its a new life
For me,
And I’m feelin’ good.
And this old world is a new world
And a bold world
For me.
