Song Lyric Sunday, 5th June 2020 Best Better/Good/Great

Hi it’s Sunday and time for Jim Adams, Song Lyric Sunday. This week for 6/7/2020 is:

Best/Better/Good/Great.

First up Good Enough : by Evanescence.

“Good Enough”

Under your spell again
I can’t say no to you
Crave my heart and it’s bleeding in your hand
I can’t say no to you

Shouldn’t let you torture me so sweetly
Now I can’t let go of this dream
I can’t breathe but I feel

Good enough
I feel good enough for you

Drink up sweet decadence
I can’t say no to you
And I’ve completely lost myself, and I don’t mind
I can’t say no to you

Shouldn’t let you conquer me completely
Now I can’t let go of this dream
Can’t believe that I feel

Good enough
I feel good enough
Its been such a long time coming, but I feel good

And I’m still waiting for the rain to fall
Pour real life down on me
‘Cause I can’t hold on to anything this good enough
Am I good enough for you to love me too?

So take care what you ask of me
‘Cause I can’t say no

Lyrics From A to Z Lyrics

Good Enough” is a song by American rock band Evanescence. It was released in 2007 as the fourth and final single from their second studio album, The Open Door. The song was written by lead vocalist Amy Lee and produced by Dave Fortman. According to Lee it was written for her long-time friend and future husband, Josh Hartzler. It was placed as the last track on the album to symbolize a new beginning for the band. According to Lee, “Good Enough” was written for the soundtrack of the movie The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, but was not included. The producers of Narnia rebutted her claim, stating that no Evanescence music had been planned for inclusion in the soundtrack. The song is a piano ballad set in a moderately slow tempo and features piano and strings. Musically it has been compared to songs by Sarah McLachlan and Tori Amos. “Good Enough” was critically acclaimed, with many music critics praising the piano sound. An accompanying music video, directed by Marc Webb and Rich Lee, was filmed in Budapest, Hungary, and released on September 10, 2007. It features Lee in a warehouse singing and playing the piano while surrounded by flames. “Good Enough” was part of the set-list during Evanescence’s 2006 The Open Door Tour. Information from Wiki

Finally Kellie Pickled and Best Days Of Your Life.

Best Days of Your Life” is a song performed by American country music artist Kellie Pickler. It was written by Pickler and American singer-songwriter Taylor Swift. It was released on December 1, 2008, as the second single from Kellie Pickler’s self-titled second album. Swift also provides background vocals on the song. The song is about a narrator explaining how her former boyfriend cheated on her and moved on to a new girlfriend to start a family with, wishing them well on their new life but says that the new girl won’t top what they previously once had before.

The song received negative reviews from critics who panned the lyricism and melody for being nondescript. Despite this, “Best Days of Your Life” peaked at number nine on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart, Pickler’s highest charting country single as of 2015. It also charted at number 46 on the Hot 100. The song was certified Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), and has sold 1,133,000 units in the United States as of June 2010. The song also charted in Canada, peaking at number 99 on the Canadian Hot 100.

The accompanying music video for the song, directed by Roman White, features Pickler’s ex-boyfriend having a miserable life with his new girlfriend and misses being with Pickler instead. Pickler debuted the song with a performance on November 12, 2008 at the 2008 CMA Awards. She also performed the song on American IdolThe Ellen DeGeneres Show, and the 2009 CMT Music Awards.

Hope you all enjoy, have a great Sunday

    If Nero had a fire sprinkler like Amy Lee, then maybe Rome would not have burned. The Evanescence video was fun to watch, Better Off Without You was a great follow up as these songs sounded good together. I never heard the Freddie version of The Great Pretender before and it was good. I only knew this song by the Band. Kellie Pickler is new to me, but she has a lovely voice and this is a great song. Thanks for sharing your music today Willow.

    Great choices today. I did “The Great Pretender” but it much more detail. LOL. I love “Good Enough”. I’m a fan of the “The Chronicles of Narnia” movies.
