Beck: Heart Is A Drum
Jimmy Eat World: The Middle
Aterciopelados: Luz Azul. Live is good, I prefer album cut video

Maybe the studio version is slighty better but I feel good about this stage too.

This thread is for songs manifesting only feel good vibes.

Aretha's singing always put me in a good mood. This performance still brings tears of joy.
Note watch and listen to Aretha and and crowd reaction, and try to excuse, if possible the gross overreacting of Carole King, she was the honoree (along with George Lucas) of this Kennedy Center event, and it was a song that she wrote.

Another winner from Aretha:

Not so much the vocals, but I love the instrumental parts of this song; a little slow, as blues should be played. Add to it Jimi's 'timbre'/'touch' on the guitar, the easy-going, relaxed sound he produces and its just perfection. :thumb:

This young lady does a good job on it, too:

Also got to include this old Billie Holiday tune, BS&T's version. Same slow bluesy feel with some nice horns and vocals:

Billie Holiday's original:

Different strokes for different folks is the name of this game; obviously.
Andy Williams' version of this song is probably the preferred version for some of our Fooish Bros.

There was a time, not long ago, that a flag waving mob was not necessarily a cause for alarm.

We all need a bit of Viv Stanshall now and then!
