"Feel Good Time" is a song by American singer Pink featuring William Orbit. It was released on June 20, 2003 as the lead single on the international edition of her third studio album Try This, it was later used on the soundtrack of the 2003 film Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle. The single peaked at number sixty on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and number three on the UK Singles Chart, and has been certified gold by the ARIA.[1]

The song was originally written by and recorded by Beck and William Orbit with the intention of being a Beck track, but after Pink wanted to cover the song, Beck gave the song to her. Beck's vocals and a guitar were removed and replaced with Pink's vocals.[2] Beck's original was later posted on Orbit's website. Feel Good Time uses audio samples from Fresh-Garbage by Spirit.

"Feel Good Time" was nominated for the 2004 Grammy Award for Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals. Nancy and the Boys covered "Feel Good Time" on the 2003 happy hardcore compilation album Speed SFX.[3]

Critical response[edit]

Stylus Magazine wrote a favorable review: "And then, there's the brilliance of 'Feel Good Time' – depending on who you believe, either stolen from or written for by Beck – ostensibly/unofficially the first single from Try This, this 'association' with Beck serves as something of a touchstone for the album; forget for a moment the white-male-pain and subdued arrangements of Mutations and Sea Change and remember instead the schizoid pastiche spectaculars of Midnite Vultures. What the album occasionally lacks in coherence or narrative it more than makes up for in moments of pop brilliance, the kind of eccentric pop magic that's not been seen since the glory days of Cyndi Lauper (I'm sure it's no accident that P!nk looks alarmingly like The Unusual One in the liner photos)."[4]
