Feel-Good Friday: The Green

Welcome to another edition of Feel-Good Friday. If you’ve listened to Jay Mohr Sports, you know that every Thursday is Positivity Thursday on his show. Feel-Good Friday has the same idea. We want to send you off to the weekend with some good vibes.

Our song for this edition of Feel-Good Friday is “Power in the Words” by The Green. This song encourages you to think about the words you say. If you’re thoughtless when you speak, then negative things will come your way. On the other hand, if you say a lot of good words to others, then positive things will come your way. It’s hardly earth-shattering, but frankly it’s a message we probably all need to hear at some point. So on this Friday, let’s all take the words of The Green to heart. Let’s all feel good on this Friday by saying good things about others.

The Green’s latest album Hawai’i 13 is available now from Easy Star Records.


Feel-Good Friday: Keyser Soze

Welcome to another Feel-Good Friday. I hope you’re all feeling good. If you’re just joining us, on Feel-Good Friday I usually feature a reggae or ska song that just makes you feel good inside. After all, the weekend is upon us, and it’s good to head into that weekend with some good vibes.

Keyser Soze is a band from Reno that gives us all a good reminder on a Feel-Good Friday. Think about it. You’re at the end of another work week. Maybe you’re fortunate enough to have a job you love. If that is the case, congratulations are certainly in order. But even if you do like your job, it’s easy to get bogged down by work and all the other things that pile up in life. That being the case, it’s sometimes necessary to get a little reminder to do what makes you happy and what makes you dance when there’s no one else around. It’s simple. But how often do we need that simple reminder? So, this weekend do what makes you happy, and by all means dance – even if other people are around.

Feel Good Friday: Wookiefoot

Loyal reader, I know you’re expecting Funk Friday, but I want to try something different today. It’s a Friday, and probably more than any day of the wee, this is a day we need good vibes to get us going into the weekend. And so, I present to you the first Good Vibes Friday. Leave your comments to let me know what you think of it.

Wookiefoot: thought-provoking good vibes

Wookiefoot: thought-provoking good vibes

Before I get on to the music, allow me to say that I am a sucker for a good, unique band name. I like to think that a band put at least some thought into its name. Wookiefoot obviously put some thought into its name and didn’t just play Mad Libs to come up with The [nondescript noun].

As for why this band gets the inaugural Good Vibes Friday slot…well, it’s partly because of the band name, and partly because of the lyrics. Ready or Not is filled with lyrics that make you think and make you feel pretty good about being a human. The best example is the song “Don’t Stop!” This song is all about fighting your way through the hard times and includes the lyrics, “When you’re going through hell, don’t stop!” Frankly, it’s a message we all need to hear. Repeatedly. We should probably all make this a personal anthem. Hey, that’s a pretty good idea. Add this song (if not the whole album) to your phone or MP3 player, and whenever you feel like you’re going through hell, play it and sing along. Make it your theme song.
