Singled Out: Cory Lamb's It's A Good Day
"It's a Good Day" started with the chorus and the song quickly found its own message. In my experience, powerful songs do that – the song comes to life and leads the way to what needs to be said. Once the message came along, we knew the melody had to be fresh and light. We wanted it to be uplifting to fit the song's message.
The story line for "It's a Good Day" is something most people – especially kids - can relate to. Who doesn't want to be famous and rich? Meeting important people and people wanting to meet you? The story is about living life never satisfied, always looking for something more. "It's a Good Day" takes the listener through what many people believe will make you happy, but as the song progresses, we can see that what's really important is helping others. Giving someone the hand-up – feeding hungry children and being part of something big. In my mind, that is what's truly important.
This song shows that being a regular guy and helping others can give you the chance to have many good days. Life is a gift that we all receive; we should make it count and be thankful for what we have and the opportunity to help others.
Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album right here!
