Feels So Good

This is my cover of “Feels So Good”, which was a huge hit for Chuck Mangione on his 1977 album and as a 1978 single. The album version of “Feels So Good” runs almost ten minutes, but an edited (3 min 28 sec) version was released as the single in early 1978, which reached #4 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in June of that year after spending a week atop the Billboard easy listening chart in May. The recording was also nominated for a Grammy Award for Record of the Year at the ceremony held in 1979, losing out to Billy Joel’s “Just the Way You Are”.
