30 day song challenge: day 3 – a song that makes you happy

*I'm going taking the song challenge to mean "of all time," not genre-specific. Any of these songs are subject to change at any time. 

This could be on the list for several entries. "Dr. Feelgood" by Aretha Franklin. I'm including the lyrics because — Good God Almighty.

 

 

"Dr. Feelgood"

I don’t want nobody
Always sitting around me and my man.
I don’t want nobody
Always sitting right there
Looking at me and that man

Be it my mother, my brother, or my sister
Would you believe? I’ll get up, put on some clothes, 
Go out and help them find somebody for themselves 
If I can. Yes I will.

Now I don’t mind company
Because company’s alright with me every once and a while
Yes it is. 
I tell you I don’t mind company
Because company’s alright with me every once in a while, yeah.

But oh, when me and that man get to loving
I tell you girls I dig you, but I just don’t have time
To sit and chit and sit and chit chat and smile.

Don’t send me no doctor
Filling me up with all of those pills
I got me a man named ‘Dr. Feelgood’
And oh, yeah that man takes care of all my pains and my ills.

His name is Dr. Feelgood in the morning.
Taking care of business is really this man’s game.
And after one visit to Dr. Feelgood
You’d understand why Feelgood is his name
Oh yeah, oh good God Almighty the man sure makes me feel real good.

 

By the way, if you've never seen the "Lady Soul" concert then I'm giving you homework for tonight.
