Best Bit-At 0.01.There is probably no other song that is instantly known by two different titles,some call it ‘I Feel Good’ and some call it ‘I Got You.’
James Brown(see also best songs 880 and 349) wrote the song in 1962 and gave it to one of his backing singers Yvonne Fair(see also best songs 480) to record as a single,back then it was called ‘I Found You,’ it met with little success.
In 1964 Brown recorded an early version of the song with a different arrangement.This version can be heard in the 1965 film ‘Ski Party’ in which Brown lip syncs his performance.It was intended to be released as a single but was withdrawn due to a court order from ‘King Records’ with whom Brown was in a contract dispute with at the time.
The song has appeared in numerous television and film soundtracks over the years,most notably in the 1987 film ‘Good Morning,Vietnam’ starring the late Robin Williams.
‘When I hold you in my arms I know that I can’t do no wrong.’
