New Thing #154: It's A Beautiful Day

I'm sure there are people who don't like Michael Buble. I thought I might have been one of them back when Haven't Met You Yet came out.

It was constantly on the radio and I wanted to think it was overplayed before I just admitted to myself that I loved the song.

Then I came around to realizing that in addition to being a talented singer, Michael Buble was a pretty friggin' cool guy too.


At least I think so, anyway.

I've never met the guy (obviously?) - but everything he does seems to be done well,and with a hint of self-deprecating humor to can you not like the guy?

And his new song is likable too.

I don't know what it's like around you, but here it's been getting a lot of radio play.

It's called It's A Beautiful Day, and it seems that DJs are contractually obligated to say every time at the completion of the song, "That's the happiest song about a breakup that you'll ever hear."

And they're right. It is.

It's not all that different from Haven't Met You Yet, which is to say it has that certain Michael Buble feel to it - it sounds like a Michael Buble song.

Or a song he sings, I guess.

I'm not sure what the deal is with his songs - there's the occasional new original song, but I think most of what he does is covers.

Whichever...there's no denying it - the man can sing.

And that humor I talked about - it's on display in the video for his new song, which I'll leave you with.

If you haven't heard the song yet, I'm sure you will - this is another one that I sense we'll be hearing throughout the summer.
