My wife’s cousin Alexis gave me Michael Bublé’s first CD about a decade ago. Mixed in with traditional standards it had songs like Moondance and Crazy Little Thing Called Love done big band style. I loved it!
But his original songs are even better. Haven’t Met You Yet and Hollywood were two of the highlights from Z100’s 2010 Jingle Ball.
His recent song, It’s a Beautiful Day, sounds like an upbeat love song that you might play at a wedding, but it’s not. He’s singing to a girl who dumped him, telling her that it was the best thing that ever happened to him.
He’s glad that she’s the one who got away.
It’s a breakup anthem.
‘Cause you may not believe, that baby, I’m relieved
When you said goodbye my whole world shined
Hey hey hey
It’s a beautiful day and I can’t stop myself from smiling
If we’re drinking, then I’m buying
And I know there’s no denying
It’s a beautiful day, the sun is up, the music’s playing
And even if it started raining
You won’t hear this boy complaining
‘Cause I’m glad that you’re the one who got away
It’s a beautiful day
I love the video with Jamie Pressly. Unless you’re still sick of the GoDaddy kissing nerd, you will too.
