Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that "Good Feeling" is a clean, positive rap tune about staying focused on all the good things in life and working hard to make your dreams come true. There's no profanity or mature content whatsoever, and the song only briefly mentions material goods (for example, fancy vehicles). The track is a great choice for tweens who love rap.

What's the story?

In "GOOD FEELING," the first single from his fourth album, Only One Rida (Part 2), rapper Flo Rida talks about seeing all the good things in life and trying hard to turn a vision into reality. The song's lyrics are overwhelmingly positive: "Giving up's not an option, gotta get it in / Witness, I got the heart of 20 men ... I know you got the good feelin' / Let's get it, let's get it, gotta love the life that we livin'."

Is it any good?

QUALITY
 

Any artist who samples legendary R&B singer Etta James deserves big props. Flo Rida's choice to include a line from James' powerful song "Something's Got a Hold On Me" pays off here, adding a cool vibe to an already exceptional track.

Good Feeling about this song

Quite possibly the best song of 2011. The message is simple - love the life you live and live it to the fullest, as well as being successful at whatever you do. Catchy beat, Flo Rida has an excellent flow, and it blends just enough electronica into the song to keep you interested. The chorus is great, and I can't really complain. Anyone can listen to this song, nothing objectionable unless you don't want your kid talking about expensive cars like Maybach. Slight bragging about being a king of the jungle and as smart as Bill Gates, but it doesn't really matter.

Great for young kids who like to listen to pop and hip hop

this is a song for younger kids who like hip hop, but aren't ready for the more mature topics and inappropriate lyrics from much better rappers. for older people who are more well versed in rap, this song honestly isn't that good and its very very poppy.

I love this song

I love this song and don't think there is much wrong with it. But there is some consumerism.
