• Chris Buckley - You Make Me Feel Better

    226 views 3 years ago
    Finally! Six years on from the first upload of the first ‘tinkersong’, a more polished version with an on-location video filmed in my beloved Isle of Man; a song that started off as me and Mike Meade (Boys Talk) trying to write something about a new love to assuage the hurt of a former love… A couple of years later I took the chorus and middle eight, slowed it down, and with a little tinkering on a piano keyboard for the first time, wrote the new verses for ‘You Make Me Feel Better’ – wistful and wishful thinking about a new love to make it all better!

    Occasionally, over the years to be strummed on the guitar. It was the first video and original song I uploaded to the YouTube Channel – just me and a guitar, not quite what I had planned, yet the video did quite well. I always knew I’d want to do a proper version with a full instrumental backing. It has taken some time but here it is.

    The video footage was filmed a couple of summers ago in the Isle of Man over two days (the Point of Ayre footage I’ll save for another day). This is footage filmed with a tripod around Groudle Glen and Laxey; fortunately there was enough footage to go with the song when I sat down to do the edit.

    The Isle of Man has always been a big part of my life, so good to capture some of its beauty. (Did feel a bit that it was the island I was singing about.) Friends’ kindness there with a loan of a car to get around, and place to stay helping me realise this project.

    Writers: Chris Buckley and Mike Meade

    You cast a spell on me
    Gone are the memories I knew
    I know she can’t get to me
    Overwhelmed by what I see in you

    And when I cry
    You’re by my side
    Giving me the love I need
    Helping me be more like me, ‘cos

    You Make Me Feel Better
    You Make Me Feel Better

    Just like a summer’s day
    You chase the rain away, it’s true
    Each moment is a precious gift
    Wrapped up and sealed with a kiss from you

    You have such style
    Can’t help but smile
    You are the apple of my eye
    Knowing you helps me through life, ‘cos

    You Make Me Feel Better
    You Make Me Feel Better

    Do do do…

    I'm never down when you’re around
    I can’t go wrong with you

    My hope is that you’ll stay with me
    For now and for eternity, please do
    I ask because it feels just right
    The closest thing to paradise is you - it’s you

    You Make Me Feel Better
    You Make Me Feel Better
    You Make Me Feel Better
    You Make Me Feel Better, Better, Better, Better
    You… Make Me Feel… Better
