On This Day in #PinkHistory… 20th June 2003, Feel Good Time was released
Feel Good Time was released in June 2003 as the lead single from the international edition of Pink’s third studio album Try This. The song features William Orbit and was also used on the soundtrack of the 2003 film Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle. The single peaked at number sixty on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and number three on the UK Singles Chart, and has been certified gold by the ARIA.
The song was originally written by and recorded by Beck and William Orbit with the intention of being a Beck track, but after Pink wanted to cover the song, Beck gave the song to her. Beck’s vocals and a guitar were removed and replaced with Pink’s vocals. Beck’s original was later posted on Orbit’s website. Feel Good Time uses audio samples from Fresh-Garbage by Spirit.
Feel Good Time was nominated for the 2004 Grammy Award for Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals.
