Good Day is a song written by Andrew Horowitz, it won the 2004 BMI John Lennon Scholarship; and It's been played on The Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson. Good Day was also featured in the April 6th, 2006 episode of The O.C., a popular prime-time drama on the Fox network.

The music video for Good Day debuted along side it's single release[1] and was later shown in the first episode of Tally Hall's Internet Show.

History

Good Day was one of the first songs written for Tally Hall, and originally appeared on the Party Boobytrap EP, then moved to Complete Demos mostly unchanged. Apart from the orchestration, there were no major changes when updated for Marvin's Marvelous Mechanical Museum.

When remixed and partially re-recorded for Atlantic Records in 2007, quite a couple changes were made, like more vocals on the intro. The "I thought you knew I knew" section was completely re-recorded and more backing vocals were recorded for the "Let us sing" section.

Live Performances

Good Day was performed on Fearless Music with the dialogue segments in the breakdown section changed to "Fearless, we are! Fearless, I say!". Rob's chicken sound, however, remained unchanged. [2]

Music Video

The music video for Good Day was filmed over a period of 4 months in 2006[3], and later burned to DVD for filming of the TV segments over that September. Tally Hall seemingly asked people around Michigan to film their TVs for the video, as a Reddit user on r/tallyhall would show a scene featuring a picture of a University of Michigan band "Groove" on a wall.[4] Tally Hall would later post outtakes from the filming on tallyhall.com.[5] Most of the members would also change their profile pictures to scenes from the video, Ross using the weight loss ad, Zubin using the Bob Ross parody, Andrew using the Blue's Clues parody, and Rob using their Party Boobytrap rap video segment.[6]

When asked about it by calenderlive.com, Rob states "We're doing it guerrilla-style, we shot part of it at Michigan Stadium.... I think the grounds crew thought we were important because of our ties."[7]

During the filming of one scene at their local rotary park, Joe Hawley and Zubin Sedghi were robbed of most of their equipment and were left injured. This event was referenced in Rotary Park, a song by both Joe and Zubin on Joe's album called Joe Hawley Joe Hawley.

The music video was uploaded to YouTube on February 25th 2008[8] and soon became featured on YouTube's featured videos category in March 2008[9]. It would also be featured on AOL Music, MSN, and AlbinoBlackSheep[10]

Trivia

  • The breakdown has Rob making a chicken sound.
  • Tally Hall recorded a special version of Good Day in the fictional "Simlish" language for the Sims 2: Apartment Life expansion pack.[11]
  • For a tie-in promotion with Burger King, U-MYX and iMeem, people were allowed to remix Good Day with its stems. It was released on June 24th 2008 and exclusive to iMeem's website until the site shut down in 2009.[12] These stems were mostly lost for years (with the exception of some vocal stems thanks to Coz Baldwin) until August 2021 when the rest were found in The "Another Minute" gigaleak, a private Tally Hall collection.
  • In the music video for Good Day, you can see home movie clips of presumably each member when they were younger.
  • Originally, instead of the images of someone screaming that multiply, there would have been moving clouds. This can be seen in the last few frames of the 30 second video without the TV effect and in the original video, a single frame after the images of someone screaming.
    The clouds.
  • Good Day was originally spelt without a space between Good and Day, "Goodday". This can be seen on the sleeve for Party Boobytrap.

Lyrics

I'd like to say hello and welcome you good day that is my name
Come here and sit down I'm so glad you even really truly came
We can even go and take a walk or something like that or something like that
But first I need to introduce my what and introduce my when

Let us sing

Its name I like to call it likes to say it's nothing (it's nothing)
It lives and breathes and it insists that it insists that it is something (it's something)
It never liked to speak or run or walk or sleep or eat
It even thought that everybody tried to thought to take its seat

Looking through glass eyes
Give it a few tries
Nothing goes right in its time
Kill all its bad dreams
Wonder 'bout no things
Circles and spirals in mind

But we know that this song is not about a no or yes or why
What's really truly what I say is that about a little sigh
So come along I think I'm done I think we're done yes this is done
What's truly that I think about it and it thinks about a ton

Let us sing

Looking through glass eyes
Give it a few tries
Nothing goes right in its time
Kill all its bad dreams
Wonder 'bout no things
Circles and spirals in mind

I thought you knew I knew but
Why and by and 
Why and by and by
I wanted you to know
I thought you knew but
Why and by and why

Let us sing, let us sing
Let us sing, let us sing
Let us sing, let us sing
Let us sing, let us sing

Birds and bees and television (let us sing, let us sing)
Cardboard houses, x-ray vision (let us sing, let us sing)
Many little silly rhymes (let us sing, let us sing)
Things forgotten lost their time (let us sing, let us sing)
Telephones and silly games (let us sing, let us sing)
Periods and lots of question marks (let us sing)
