It was exactly a year ago that OneRepublic released their sophomore album, Waking Up. The band premiered the “International Version” music video for the album’s next single, “Good Life”.
The song is one of my favorites on the album and I’m glad it is getting a proper release and video. The single edit of the song is a bit shorter than the album version, and is also different, especially the last minute of the song. I love the whistling! It’s such a great song!
A few days ago, a version of the video was leaked, and OneRepublic issued a statement saying the leaked video was not the official video and was “an unfinished product”…. but this new “International Version” looks very similar…. maybe there’s another US version of the video in the works?
Either way, the song is super upbeat and catchy. The lyrics are positive and it’s a feel good song. The video is really simplistic, and the guys are out in the country-side having a good time… it works and get’s the job done.
