Joe Cocker’s Absolute Best “Feelin’ Alright” Woodstock Performance, Live 1969

Joe Cocker’s Absolute Best “Feelin’ Alright” Woodstock Performance, Live 1969 | Society Of Rock Videos

Uh Huh…

Oh man, could we say enough amazing things about Joe Cocker? Unfortunately we could not find the video for this, but honestly, the audio does enough justice to one of the greatest vocalists and songwriters of all time. Rest in Peace Joe.

“Feelin’ alright, not feelin’ too good myself. Feelin’ alright not feelin’ too good myself.”

Appearing at Woodstock in 69 was a huge deal for Joe, as he was one of the less publicized artists of the festival. His “With A Little Help From My FriendsBeatles cover really took off, but Joe was eager to spread his own music with his fans.


Interesting Quote:  “Moving my hand around is subconscious with me. A lot of the time I’m more orless conducting the band, just keeping a feel. I don’t know why I do it. It’s just one of those things.” – Joe Cocker

The vocals in this particular performance were out of this world and you can really tell that Joe is “feelin'” it as he creates his following in Bethel, New York 1969.

+ Feelin’ Alright Lyrics +

Seems I got to have a change of scene
Cause every night I have the strangest dreams
Imprisoned by the way it used to be
Left here on my own or so it seems
I got to leave before I start to scream
But someone’s locked the door and took the key

Feelin’ alright
Not feelin’ too good myself
Feelin’ alright
Not feelin’ too good myself

Boy you sure took me for one big ride
Even now I sit and wonder why
And when I think of you I start to cry
Got to stop belivin’ in all your lies
Cause I got to much to do before I die

Before someone comes along and takes my place
With a different name and yes a different face
