You know what makes Friday even better? Having a holiday called Good Friday! Also known as Easter Friday, Holy Friday, or Great Friday, today is a religious holiday that falls the Friday before Easter Sunday. Oh, and did we meantion that we also get the day off school and work? In honor of this special day, this edition of Playlistin’ is all about “good” songs: not just tunes that we think are good, but songs with the actual word in the title! With so many jams out there that drop the “G” word, we narrowed down our favorite ones into a convenient five-track playlsit for your Good Friday:
5. Nina Simone — Feeling Good
“And I’m feeling good / Fish in the sea you know how I feel / River running free you know how I feel / Blossom on the tree you know how I feel”
4. Lady Antebellum — Lookin’ For A Good Time
“Hey, I’m just looking for a good time / Go ahead and lie to me and pull me close / Tell me that you love me even if you don’t”
3. OneRepublic — Good Life
“I say, ‘Oh, got this feeling that you can’t fight’ / Like this city is on fire tonight / This could really be a good life, a good, good life”
2. Gorillaz — Feel Good Inc.
“Feel good / Windmill, windmill for the land / Turn forever hand in hand / Take it all in on your stride”
1. Flo Rida — Good Feeling
“Good feelin’, good feelin’ / I know you got the good feelin’ / Let’s get it, let’s get it / Gotta love the life that we livin’”
