5 Songs With Good In The Title

1. Feel Good Inc by Gorillaz

Gorillaz - Feel Good Inc. (Official Video)

Ranking first on our list of songs with good in the title is “Feel Good” by Gorillaz. This song conveys a straightforward message overall. We immerse ourselves in erroneous hedonism, with the expectation that women, money, material possessions, and the media would bring us happiness and contentment.

They have the ability to improve our mood, and this provides us with a welcome diversion from the gloomy reality that our lives are filled with things that provide us pleasure but do not bring us happiness (key line: “A melancholy town where we never smile”).

When we think about it, browsing the internet for hours on end provides us with a nice distraction, yet when we are doing it, we rarely, if ever, crack a smile. That is the most important difference.

A dependence on how we feel keeps us chained to the activities, relationships, and circumstances that give us that feeling in the first place. Happiness, on the other hand, is the freedom and confidence to do anything, anywhere, at any time.

Our inability to distinguish between the two will keep us trapped in the tower, in this depressing town where we never smile, and even if we do, we could already be too far gone to escape.

2. Good Riddance (Time of Your Life) by Green Day

Next on our list of songs with good in the title is “Good Riddance”. The song visualizes the cycles of life and the way in which they have a tendency to repeat themselves based on our perceptions and experiences.

It conveys the concept that we may choose whether to view life’s fundamental circumstances as positive or negative, and that our mental attitude may be the only thing that we can actually influence. The remainder of what happens has already been decided, and when we get to the destination, we’ll realize why.

To be more specific, this song talks about the lessons that we can learn from life if we are open to them, attentive, and make an effort not to solve everything by our own means.

It is beneficial to have self awareness and a grasp of our environment, but it has the potential to render us immobile if we delve too deeply into it and do not accept things for what they are.

If the song is a reflection of what the songwriter went through personally, the band performs an excellent job of conveying satire through a sarcastic and gloomy tone, which ultimately leads to an upbeat and positive attitude.

It appears as though the songwriter or vocalist went through some challenging moments, but that they choose to accept them and look at their experiences in a more optimistic way as a result.

I believe that this song is meant to be taken not only for the context of a romantic relationship but also for the context of life in general. It advises not to dwell on the difficult times but to instead draw wisdom from them and treasure the good times.

The person singing the song was, at one point in their lives, the very person he warns others to avoid becoming like in the song. He had experiences, thus he learned.

3. You Know I’m No Good by Amy Winehouse

Amy Winehouse - You Know I'm No Good

I would like to state unequivocally that Amy Winehouse is without a doubt one of the best female singers of the current era. When you listen to it, her lyrics, which are so self-deprecating, leave something to be desired (in a good way).

I believe the first thing she mentions in this song is how she followed her guy below to an underground bar. It is likely that her lover is upset because he is ignoring her, and she feels hurt because of this. Amy’s boyfriend most likely found out about her romance with her ex-boyfriend by looking for evidence around their apartment or by observing Amy herself.

Amy’s boyfriend is irate and is getting ready to confront her former partner to defend both their honor. Amy makes several attempts to dissuade him from going through with it while he vents his anger and wonders what else amy and “the ex” have been up to.

Amy and her boyfriend are at the bar, and she wants to leave with him, but he won’t accompany her. When the current boyfriend’s ex-girlfriend walks into the pub, he immediately becomes excited. A brawl breaks out in a bar, and the former partner’s friends and entourage join in.

The following stanza describes Amy’s “state of rebound,” one-night relationship, and the fallout she had with her current partner following the altercation in the pub.

She is sleeping with her ex, but in order to break up with him she needs to think about her present partner. At the conclusion of “the encounter,” the guy calls her cellphone and introduces himself. After she had an intimate encounter with her former partner, she “rushes out” to find him.

The young man has expressed interest in picking up where they left off, to which Amy’s agrees.

She weeps because she is unable to be loyal to him but at the same time he is unable to comprehend who she is. At the end of it all, she finds herself back in the same position she was in before the bar brawl.

4. Something Good by alt-J

Alt-J - Something Good (Official Video)

To be more specific, I believe the song is about love; however, it is also applicable to any situation in which a person attempts to cope with loss by looking for a replacement, rather than attempting to merely reduce the amount of need they have.

The song picks off right where the last one left off. The two lines are nearly identical, and they represent the technique and process of trying to forget a former lover by swiftly taking on and sprinting towards another, despite the fact that love is what seems to have harmed or almost hurt him in the first place.

The fact that this dude’s song is so crazy suggests that he may be an addict of some kind, and this fact is supported by the lyrics. On the other hand, it’s possible that he just enjoys having a large circle of acquaintances.

It’s possible that he has issues with being abandoned, is hooked on interacting with other people, and desperately wants to feel connected to the world.

5. Good Life by OneRepublic

OneRepublic - Good Life (Official Music Video)

Concluding our list of good in the title is Good life by one republic. To begin, I believe that this song is about the challenges of being on tour while being thousands of miles away from home and on the opposite side of the world.

Despite the fact that this seems like a fairly unremarkable topic to write about, I believe that this song is well-done and that it touches a chord within me.

Partying and meeting new, intriguing people in new places on a daily basis definitely offers an illusion of a great life, but when everything is said and done, a sense of emptiness looms, and you have nothing to hold on to.

One-night stands are entertaining, but as the days turn into months and the months turn into years, you begin to experience a sense of emptiness on the inside and begin to long for the company of another person.

Although this song was plainly written from a celebrity’s perspective and is therefore on a different scale than what the ordinary 20’s encounter, it depicts a struggle that all young people can connect with as they attempt to delay the arrival of maturity.

It is very alluring to live a life of revelry, and after a while, it can even become addictive; however, at some point, you will need to realize that there is more to life, and you will have to move on. But this is a challenging situation that requires acceptance and letting go all at the same time.
