Just Feel Better by Santana ft Steve Tyler

This song describes exactly what I have been feeling these days. Lets just say I haven't had the greatest of weeks. Tones of homework, projects due, and friend trouble is not what I call a piece of cake. I had heard this song when it came out but I hadn't listened to it since and I forgot how great it is. Hello? Santana, the greatest guitarist of the world, doing his magic and Steve Tyler's voice is pure musical genius. Check out the video:

Sure the video is a bit disturbing with all the teacher harassment and the fact that Steve Tyler is kissing a girl who is REALLY young(0:54) , but look past that and into the meaning of the video and of the song. That's why it is the song of the week. I am sure there are lots of people out there who are feeling that they cant see through the haze around them. I know I am one of them right here right now. The song is all about finding a way to feel better and not focus on the problem at hand. Its all about Carpe Diem(sorry we watched The Dead Poets Society in class today)! Freeing yourself from that that is holding you back.
Lets see what can I say about these two gentlemen. We've got Santana who was born in Jalisco, Mexico in July 20, 1947. He has been playing the guitar since he was 8 and has been in the music business for 40 years. Steve Tyler is not the only other artist he has played with, his list of featured artist like Michelle Branch and Chad Kroeger. Then there is Steve Tyler, father of Liv Tyler. He was born in New York in March 26, 1948. Since 1970 he has been in the recognized band Aerosmith but before he used to be in another band called The Strangers where he played the drums.

Please feel free to comment on this song! I hope you like it!
