"Feels So Good" by Chuck Mangione

Birthday wishes go out today to jazzy flugelhorn player Chuck Mangione, who in 1978 scored a major hit with Feels So Good; an abbreviated version of the nearly ten minute song went all the way to number 4 in the United States, and today makes an effective short-hand for anyone - from sitcom writers to indie auteurs - seeking to evoke the Seventies with just a few notes.

I was eight when this song first came out, and back then I used to call him "Chuck Mangy-One"... Ah, you never forget your first punditry!
