I Feel Good
"I Got You (I Feel Good)" is a twelve-bar blues with a brass-heavy instrumental arrangement similar to Brown's previous hit, "Papa's Got a Brand New Bag". It also features the same emphasis "on the one" (i.e. the first beat of the measure) that characterizes Brown's developing funk style. The lyrics have Brown exulting in how good he feels ("nice, like sugar and spice") now that he has the one he loves, his vocals punctuated by screams and shouts. The song includes an alto sax solo by Maceo Parker.
I Feel Good
Do you feel good? We hope so, but it's also possible that you feel well, rather than good. A third possibility is that you do not distinguish between these two ways to feel. And a fourth distinct possibility is that, having realized you are beginning to read yet another article on the minutiae of English usage, you feel something more akin to bored.
Another form of opposition to feeling good is that good is commonly used as an adjective, and so the verb feel should be followed by the adverb of well. This argument contains problems. One is that well may be an adjective, adverb, noun, verb, or interjection, and good may be both adverb or adjective (and noun). Also, feel is a linking verb, which means that it may be modified with an adjective, rather than an adverb.
The adverbial use of good is fairly old in English (about a thousand years or so), but in the 19th century began to be seen as unduly colloquial, or improper. There is still considerable evidence of such use in modern writing (particularly in coverage of sports), but if you want to convince certain people that you write good you will use well rather than good when modifying action verbs (such as write).
Have been taking for about 3 months and my energy level has improved immensely. Easy to take and it makes you feel good to know that you are doing something good for your body. I will continue to take for a long time as I feel the benefits.

Feel well, I think, is used only to refer to a good health condition. Feel good, on the other hand, can also be used in this way, but is also very commonly used to refer to a good emotional condition.
So in Bocchi's answer above-"I can't feel well but I feel good this morning"-the sick speaker in the hospital is saying that he can't feel healthy, but he does feel happy, or in a good state of mind.
(Feel badly, as well as feel bad, meaning to feel unhappy, guilty, or uneasy, does exist, as described in Quirk et al., A Comprehensive Grammar of the English Language (Longman, 1985, p. 408-409). It has become acceptable, according to The American Heritage Dictionary's usage entry under bad. Still, Quirk notes that " there are prescriptive objections to the adverb form.badly with feel.")
Results: Seventeen patients participated and described their experiences of consultations, which were varied and influenced by factors such as information given (resources, explanation, repetition, consistency); their dietitian's approach (prescriptive or nonprescriptive, use of behaviour change skills), behaviour (listening skills, body language) and appointment (expectations, involvement of the multidisciplinary team, length of time); and their own internal experience (confidence, guilt, frustration). Patients agreed that certain factors, such as good communication and rapport, receiving effective and reliable information and resources, and nonjudgmental, regular support, were important factors in creating a positive experience of their consultation. However, they differed in what they believed constituted these factors.
Schadenfreude happens for a reason. When we are willing to look it in the eye, we can ask ourselves what prompted it in the first place. Did you think the person deserved a comeuppance? Why? Do you envy the person whose suffering you are enjoying? Or were they making you feel inadequate or vulnerable? Betrayed? Misrepresented? Angry?
But every so often, though, we all feel a moment of schadenfreude that jars us and makes us uncomfortable. And when this happens and the person in question is someone you trust, the best option may be to tell them.
I was recommended Valerie and Feel Good Placenta, and am so happy I found them. Before our delivery, we had a great long phone call with Valerie who made us feel so safe and comfortable about the whole process. She gave us detailed information about the steps involved and answered all our questions. On the day of the delivery, everything went smoothly. I started taking the placenta pills as directed a few days after the delivery. I feel very lucky that my mood was steady and upbeat postpartum. I am grateful that I had them as an option available to me. I had a really good experience and would recommend Valerie to everyone considering this process!
Working with Valerie for my placenta encapsulation was such an amazing experience! She was always there to answer my questions and made the entire journey feel seamless. As far as the capsules themselves, they felt like little miracle pills. I had some pretty gnarly postpartum blues and every time I took a dosage I felt a jolt of energy, which was so helpful for the sleepless nights. They kept me sane during a time where I really needed it! Not to mention seeing your planeta keepsake is so cool.
As a first-time surrogate mother I was concerned about postpartum depression. Early on in my pregnancy, I opted to encapsulate my placenta. I had read/heard all the great benefits of consuming the pills. With that being said, I went with feel good placenta. Valerie thoroughly explained all the processes and elements.
I've been saying for years that I never cry during sad moments in the movies, only during moments about goodness. At the end of "Terms of Endearment," I didn't cry because of Debra Winger's death, but because of how she said goodbye to her sons. Now I've have discovered a scientific explanation for why I feel the way that I do, and there is even a name for my specific emotion.
I wasn't seeking an explanation, and I'm not sure I really wanted one. And, for that matter, I don't really cry, at least not in the wiping-my-eyes and blowing-my-nose fashion. What I experience is the welling up of a few tears in my eyes, a certain tightness in my throat, and a feeling of uplift: Yes, there is a good person, doing a good thing. And when the movie is over, I don't want to talk with anyone. After such movies I notice that many audience members remain in a kind of reverie. Those who break the spell by feeling compelled to say something don't have an emotional clue.
It doesn't require a tearjerker to create this aura. "Fargo" is far from a tearjerker, but at the end, when Marge Gunderson snuggles up to her husband Norm and tells him how proud she is about his design for the wildlife stamp, it made me feel so warm. And it was at the very end of "Do the Right Thing," when the quotations from Martin Luther King and Malcolm X appeared on the screen, that I felt: Yes, that is the choice. And I hope we make the right one.
This feeling doesn't come only from movies. John Prine's "Hello in There" evokes it--not because of the story of the old man and his wife, Loretta, but because of Prine's writing of it and so many other songs showing the instinctive empathy of a great poet. Another experience evoking it was watching Michael Jordan's performance in a game in the 1997 NBA finals. He had food poisoning. He had lost six pounds in two days. The doctors told him to stay in bed. He dragged himself onto the court. He was dripping with sweat. On the bench, he draped a towel over his head. He scored the game-high 38 points, and sank the winning three-pointer. I wasn't moved by the victory. That's only basketball. I was moved by his bravery.
I am moved by generosity, empathy, courage, and by the human capacity to hope. During Barack Obama's victory speech on Nov. 4, I felt a powerful, long-sustaining feeling of uplift. No, it was not because of the speech, however powerful. It was because of those hundreds of thousands together in Grant Park, a sea of humanity, all races, all religions, all ethnicities, all together, affirming American hope. It was not so much that they had elected a black man as our president, although that was a part. It was because they had risen up and affirmed the America I grew up believing in.
In the movies, I feel this emotion not only during movies about great men, like "Gandhi," but during little family comedies such as "Nothing Like the Holidays," when a Puerto Rican mother tells her Jewish daughter-in-law, "You know, there are a lot of good Jews in Puerto Rico." She sees beyond the labels to the woman. She has risen above categories. In Bergman's "Cries and Whispers," Agnes dies a painful death from cancer, and that is sad. But I was moved by two moments. The scene where her nurse Anna comforts her against her bare breast. And the reading from her diary after Agnes has died, where she recalls a tranquil autumn day they all spent together in the garden: "This is happiness. I cannot wish for anything better. I feel profoundly grateful to my life, which gives me so much." That is so more deeply moving than Rage, rage, against the dying of the light.
Elevation has always existed but has just moved out of the realm of philosophy and religion and been recognized as a distinct emotional state and a subject for psychological study. Psychology has long focused on what goes wrong, but in the past decade there has been an explosion of interest in "positive psychology"--what makes us feel good and why. University of Virginia moral psychologist Jonathan Haidt, who coined the term elevation, writes, "Powerful moments of elevation sometimes seem to push a mental 'reset button,' wiping out feelings of cynicism and replacing them with feelings of hope, love, and optimism, and a sense of moral inspiration." 041b061a72
