Song Description

Song is about a simple way of looking at every day, and options for making excellent things happen.

Story Behind the Song

Wow there have been a few versions of this tune. the oldest version was a more punk version called beautiful day. Yes before U2 came out with beautiful day. After their song hit the airwaves(great song by the way). I cast this one aside for a bit. Th

Broadjam Member Reviews

I love it when you get into the verse, "It's an EXCELLENT DAY!" That definitely is the hook, and you wisely repeat it over and over. It's a let's get it on song, loaded with phrases that are cliches but they work! Instruments, studio work, recording, is superb. Sounds just the way good ol' rock and roll should sound. Vocals have the everyday kind of guy appeal and sang very well. Overall, makes me feel like going outside among the grass and the trees, lay back and having a beer!

some good guitar licks... nice progressive rock song...

Excellent Day

It's morning again
and I open my eyes
It's morning again
You're there by my side
It's morning again
the morning light fills your eyes
I'm happy to be alive...

It's the first day
of the rest of your life
something new
and something different
for me and for you
something to do
to get us through
to another day
where we can get up and say
It's an excellent day, all day long


It's a excellent day...
for walking through the park
It's a excellent day
for lying in the sun
for having fun
It's a excellent day
in the mountains..
for meeting a friend
all day long
for writing or singing a song


It's the first day...
