George Michael – Feeling Good In San Jose

From the recent George Michael 25Live concert in San Jose, here, thanks to winniehk88, is a live performance Feeling Good.

You get to see a little bit of (but not nearly enough, unfortunately) of the all-new, specially made Dita Von Teese video in the above clip.

Now, as you know, George recorded this song at the request of the writers of TV Show, Eli Stone.  The song played a key part of the Eli Stone Season One Finale.  Interestingly, this wasn’t the writer’s first choice.  According to George, they originally wanted him to sing “that Jackie Wilson” song.  George responded that “I’m good, but I’m not Jackie Wilson!”, so George suggested the Nina Simone classic instead. Which Jackie Wilson song was it that George didn’t feel he could sing?  I’m not sure. My guess is, it’s probably this one: (Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher and Higher:

  1. Love the contrast of the two videos. I think you are right about which Jackie Wilson song George said he wasn’t “that good” about . George would have had a hard time rearranging this one to avoid the high notes!

    BTW try listening to Michael Buble’s version of “Feeling Good” after George’s sometime.

    And I thought Michael Buble’s version was pretty good until I heard the comparison!

  2. Feeling Good is not a new song, George recorded the track in the summer of 1999, it is produced by George and Phil Ramone and it was a track originally recorded for Songs from the Last Century. I know for sure that there is another unedited track from those sessions.

  3. I don’t know the title, but I have read an interview with Phil Ramone about 2 years ago and he said that there were 2 unedited songs recorded in 1999 with George. Now we know that one is Feeling Good. In the US Twenty Five cd you can read that the song is produced by George and Phil Ramone🙂

  4. i saw & heard George perform this at Monday nights ‘FINAL TWO’ concert @ Earls Court London.
    His performance was fantastic as always…………..
    Truely an artist who gives perfection EVERY time
