Hackskeptic’s 500 Greatest Songs: Feeder – Just A Day


406 – Feeder – Just A Day (2001)
Written by Grant Nicholas
Produced by Grant Nicholas and Feeder
Label – Echo

The joy of “Just A Day” doesn’t just lie in the surging, pulsating performance but in two equally significant additions that add to the vitality of this single. For anyone who enjoyed the video game “Gran Turismo” the inclusion of the song on the soundtrack makes driving virtual high performance cars even more realistic. More importantly the promo video enhances the song beyond mere aural boundaries, as a succession of teenage wannabes ape their heroes in bedroom re-enactments, all spliced together to remind us that at some stage in our life, in the confines of our room, we have all been that rock star. Go on, admit it, tennis rackets and hair brushes haven’t always been used for what they were intended for.
