“Birds flying high you know how I feel
Sun in the sky you know how I feel
Breeze driftin’ on by you know how I feel.”
One of my favorite songs …. for about 50 years is “Feeling Good” – so many artists have recorded and preformed this amazing song.
It started with Nina Simone’s version, from 1965 and the last 10 years has Michael Buble’s version been my top favorite. The song is written by the two British songwriters Anthony Newley and Leslie Bricusse and published in 1964. The song was first performed in public by the British singer and actor Cy Grant in 1965.
Over here in Sweden has now Volvo gone in business with our Swedish WORLD famous DJ, Avicii and using him in the commercial for the new XC90 model – A new beginning.
Tim Bergling, better known as Avicii, born 1989 in Stockholm. Avicii got a massive globe hit in 2013 with “Wake Me Up”. “Wake Me Up”, which has been number one on iTunes in over 60 countries and sold gold and platinum in 25 countries. Avicii today lives in Los Angeles and he preforms about 325 times per year all around the world. He is going to preform on our Royal wedding this summer, when our Prince Carl Philip weds his Sofia.
In Avicii’s version the singer is Audra Mae, born in Oklahoma City (US) 1984. She also did Avicii’s “Addicted to Love” – she as an amazing voice.
Now Avicii has now done his version of “Feeling Good” – which is also being use in the commercial. Yesterday the Volvo commercial had it’s premier, 8th of May 8.5opm CET. Not released on YouTube yet.
34 artists has in total has recorded this song included Avicii.
I would say it’s the best songs ever made.
And now we have a new version and I really it. Enjoy!!!
Like Avicii, Volvo and me – All Made by Sweden.
“It’s a new dawn
It’s a new day
It’s a new life
And I’m feeling good”
