Album of the Day
SONG OF THE DAY - "Bad Day"
“My granddad used to say to me, 'There's better people who are worse off than you,' and I always remember that,” noted singer-songwriter Daniel Powter of his “Bad Day.” “It's a song about trying to make people feel better.” The global smash certainly struck a chord, topping the Billboard singles chart, earning triple-platinum sales status and becoming European radio's most played song of 2005. The centerpiece of Powter's self-titled album, the track was inspired by his struggles to succeed as a musician (“Bad Day” was rejected by labels for two years before Warner Bros. signed the performer), which shows what can happen when you don't let adversity stop you. We'll make it our Song of the Day in the hopes that your Friday the 13th isn't a “Bad Day.”
