CLICK HERE to hear a choral version from the Park New Choir in France.

==========================================================

I FEEL GOOD
Traditional Negro Spiritual

Well, I feel good, good, good
Well I feel good oh yes my Lord
Because there's something like the Spirit of Jesus
Makes me feel good, good, good, good

Well I feel joy, joy, joy
Well I feel joy oh yes my Lord
Because there's something like the Spirit of Jesus
Makes me feel joy, joy, joy

Well I feel love, love, love
Well I feel love down in my heart
Because there's something like the Spirit of Jesus
Makes me feel love, love, love

Well I can sing, sing, sing
Well I can sing oh yes my friends
Because there's something like the Spirit of Jesus
Makes me sing good, good, good, good

Do you feel good, good good?
If you feel good, then clap your hands
Because there's something like the Spirit of Jesus
Makes me feel good, good, good, good

The WildGyrl comes to the computer desk, drapes a cloak around the Sooz's shoulders, begins to lead her away, then....NO! Shoulders flung, cape hits the ground, Sooz runs back to the keyboard for ONE LAST POST! Get on the scene!

~Jen (who was wondering why a choir would sing James Brown? *bg*)

I FEEL GOOD
James Brown

Whoa-oa-oa! I feel good, I knew that I would, now
I feel good, I knew that I would, now
So good, so good, I got you

Whoa! I feel nice, like sugar and spice
I feel nice, like sugar and spice
So nice, so nice, I got you

When I hold you in my arms
I know that I can't do no wrong
And when I hold you in my arms
My love won't do you no harm.

And I feel nice, like sugar and spice
I feel nice, like sugar and spice
So nice, so nice, I got you.

[SAX, two licks to bridge]

When I hold you in my arms
I know that I can't do no wrong
And when I hold you in my arms
My love can do me no harm. And I feel nice, like etc.

Whoa! I feel good, I knew that I would, now
I feel good, I knew that I would
So good, so good, 'cause I got you
So good, etc.
So good, etc.

The simple form and structure, with constant repetition, is typical of most spirituals. This one doesn't seem to mention Jesus, chariots, chil'un or any of the usual themes, however. The use of the saxophone is novel; usually clapping hands and the occasional "o Lawd !" are sufficient.
