Welcome to This Day in Barrington History
Good morning and welcome to March 13th and Day 72 of 365 in Barrington, Illinois! You’ll find our stories of the day – past, present & future (events) – right here on today’s DailyPage. Because every day has its own rhythm, we’re sharing a song of the day here at 365Barrington.com.
Our song for today is rapper, Flo Rida‘s “Good Feeling” … just because of the feeling in the air right now with the return of both warmer weather and full-day, every-day school in the Barrington 220 School District. Exactly one year ago today, on March 13th of 2020, Barrington 220 schools superintendent, Dr. Brian Harris, announced the closure of our schools due to the rapid worldwide spread of coronavirus. “Good feeling” doesn’t fully describe how it feels to be on the other side of this pandemic, but the energy of this song comes close!!!
“Good Feeling” was released late August, 2011 and peaked at number 3 on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming Flo Rida’s sixth top-ten and fourth top-five single on the chart. The song became a top ten hit in 16 countries. The song features acoustic-driven guitars, computerized beats and charging keyboards over a prominent sample from Avicii’s song “Levels“, which in turn samples Etta James’s 1962 gospel-tinged hit “Something’s Got a Hold on Me.” The first use of the Etta James vocal sample in a popular track was by Pretty Lights in the song “Finally Moving” in 2006, with a remix surfacing in 2008.
