Jimmy Fallon, Meghan Trainor & The Roots Sing "All About That Bass" w/ Classroom Instruments.

According to Trainor, the title of the song relates the idea of the bass being the support at the bottom of a song to a person's bottom: "You know how the bass guitar in a song is like its 'thickness," the "bottom"? I kind of related a body to that."

The voice that started the first ever Song Around The World, “Stand By Me”, many years ago on the streets in Santa Monica, CA. Roger Ridley inspired from the very beginning, and his music continues to inspire as PFC shares this 9 years and 95 Episodes later.

Thanks to Roger, all of you, and music everywhere, we can see that if we stand by each other everything is going to be alright. Turn up this classic medley of “Tears on My Pillow” and “You Send Me”, the final PFC video featuring Roger Ridley, and for a moment find peace in your heart and in your world. Music is the Key. RIP Roger, we LOVE you and your music shines as bright as the sun. playingforchange.com
 

 
 
 
 





Birds flying high you know how I feel
Sun in the sky you know how I feel
Breeze driftin' on by you know how I feel

"Feeling Good" is a song written by English songwriters Anthony Newley and Leslie Bricusse for the musical The Roar of the Greasepaint – The Smell of the Crowd. The song was first performed on stage in 1964 by Cy Grant on the UK tour, and by Gilbert Price in the original Broadway cast in 1965.

Nina Simone recorded the song for her 1965 album I Put a Spell on You and it became a standard. The song has been covered by many artists, most notably by English rock band Muse, Michael Bublé, George Michael, Eels and Joe Bonamassa.
