The latest release from WACO is an absolutely rip-roaring track full of raw emotion that resonates with the listener from the moment it begins. It’s appropriately titled Good Days, as you can’t help but feel better upon hearing it. In fact, today is probably the best day I’ve had all week. Yes, I admit it’s only Monday, but after hearing this tune, I suspect that things can only go downhill from here. Note to self, think twice before you start your morning with a song that makes you want to go outside and live life to the fullest during a nationwide lockdown.
All jokes aside, that’s exactly what this tune feels like; an utter celebration of the chaos that is life, the opening vocals ringing out with “good days, bad days, good days, that’s the way it is”. There is a philosophy that underpins the theme of Good Days regarding meaning, purpose, suffering and those incredible moments when of all this fades into nothing as you live for the moment.
Each section of Good Days will have you involuntarily headbanging, especially the anthemic and hugely memorable chorus. I just want to say thanks to WACO, you’ve made me have a good day. Now, reader, go and check this song out so you can have one too.
