“Feeling Good” (also known as “Feelin’ Good”) is a song written by English singer-songwriters Anthony Newley and Leslie Bricusse for the 1965 musical ‘The Roar of the Greasepaint - The Smell of the Crowd’ starring Cy Grant, who sang the original version of the song. The song has notably been covered by artists such as Muse, Michael Bublé and Eels.

Nina Simone’s version appeared on her 1965 album ‘I Put a Spell on You’. Her version is also featured in the 1993 film ‘Point of No Return’, in which the protagonist uses the code name “Nina” and professes to be a longtime fan of Simone’s music. The song was also featured in the promotional video of the TV series ‘Six Feet Under’ (4th season), and is included in the show’s Volume 2 soundtrack. Simone’s version is in the soundtracks of the 2006 film ‘Last Holiday’, the 2010 film ‘Repo Men’, the French 2011 film ‘Intouchables’ , and the 2009 game ‘The Saboteur’, which is set during World War II, long before the song was written.
