Radio XIII, side B, track 5: “Feels So Good” by Van Halen

Van Halen Feels So Good

Oh, Van Halen, you know what feels so good?  Well, besides getting to listen to this song, that is?  We’ve made it through another year.  And what better way to celebrate that than with one of the bands who’s shone up the most on my tapes thus far.  It was the fall of 1988, and we were all discovering that “OU812” was a helluva album.  I think I may have even owned that one, Van Halen.  It was my way of feeling relevant, having the latest Van Halen cassette, with a title that sounded like the punch line to a kid’s joke (akin to that old gem from my youth: “A lion ate my teacher and I’m gladiator”) but full of awesome tracks like this one.  This won’t be the last track by you guys featured here, but it’ll be the last track featured for 2012.  Thanks for helping to make the last year of reminiscing about my radio tapes a great one, Van Halen.

“Feels So Good”

Ohhhh, here we go!

Yeeeeah yeah!

<awesome Van Halen jam>

Yesterday
I saw my love light shine

Straight ahead
In front of me

You never really know

When love’ll come or goooo, but yesterday
I was alone

Suddenly
I walked you home

I never really knew
What love could make me doooo

I’ll send the message in a bottle (I’ll send the message)

Trust in the mercy of the sea (ooo ooo ooo)
Stormy weather (ooo ooo)
Oh yeah (ooo ooo ooo)

Waitin’ for love ta set me free

Every day
I watch the tide roll in

Stay until
It rolls away

Though nothin’s on the shore
I’m runnin’ back for mooore

I’ll send the message in a bottle (I’ll send the message)

Pray for the mercy of the sea (ooo ooo ooo)
Stormy weather (ooo ooo)
Oh yeah (ooo ooo ooo)

Waitin’ for love ta rescue me

Hey! Feels so good
(So good)
Woo!

And it feels so nice
(So nice)
When love comes around
I feel good
(So good) So good, so good, so good

An’ it feels so nice
(So nice) Woo!

Ow! Feels so good

<awesome Van Halen jam>

Yeah!
Feels so good!  Woo! (So good)

And it feels so nice
 
(So nice)
When love comes around
I feel good
(So good)

Hey!

Gonna make her feel nice
(So nice)
When love comes around, I feel good, woo! (so good)
So good, so good, so good

(So nice)
Come on, baby
