#MusicMonday – It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day, it’s a new life for me…

Music Monday

It’s Monday, its 4pm so its time for me to share my #MusicMonday choice. This is my opportunity to share a track of my liking with you lovely people. This is all under the meme created by the one and only Drew Weldon, The Tattooed Book Geek.

Today’s choice is an oldie but a goodie. It was the first track my music library decided to play to me after dropping my boys off on my first school run of the year (yes they’ve been since Monday but I’ve not been taking them). It wasn’t the original that popped up, it was a cover by Muse (which I’ve linked below) but I still love the original version. It totally summed up how the week had gone for me and how I was feeling as I walked home in the rain … enjoy….

Feelin’ Good by Nina Simone

Birds flyin’ high, you know how I feel
Sun in the sky, you know how I feel
Breeze 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
Yeah, it’s a new dawn, it’s a new day, it’s a new life for me, ooooooooh
And I’m feelin’ good

Fish in the sea, you know how I feel
River runnin’ 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 feelin’ 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 day is done: that’s what I mean
And this old world is a new world and a bold world 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 for me

And I’m feelin’… good
