We took a week off from Song Of The Week last week, but we’re back with a new one for the start of a new month – Best Day Of My Life by American Authors.

A lot of new things are getting started today, including me starting a new job – Project Shandy is likely to be quiet for a little while, as I am down in the English midlands doing my first week’s induction/training for the new position.

Moving on to new things is something that I find relatively easy, although sadly that’s because I have had a lot of practice. The way education funding works in the UK means that contracts get changed around a lot and companies rise and fall in relatively short order. I’ve worked for small firms, and for big firms that have education as a side line. I hope that this job will be different – a massive national company who have all of their eggs in the education basket and they have been doing excellently in this business for a long time. They are setting up a new initiative for teaching maths and English to adults across the country and I am really excited to be a part of this new project.

It was difficult to find a song to fit this week, which is a funny mix of apprehension, nerves, not wanting to be away from home and yet also excitement, feeling optimistic and looking forward to getting stuck into a new challenge.

And then it hit me.

This could be the best day of my life. So let’s assume that it’s going to be. And go forward with heads up in hope.

I like this song, it’s brimful of energy and a catchy beat. I really hope that this gets me through this week.

“Best Day Of My Life”

I had a dream so big and loud
I jumped so high I touched the clouds
I stretched my hands out to the sky
We danced with monsters through the nightI’m never gonna look back
Whoa, I’m never gonna give it up
No, please don’t wake me now
This is gonna be the best day of my life
This is gonna be the best day of my life

I howled at the moon with friends
And then the sun came crashing in
But all the possibilities
No limits just epiphanies

I’m never gonna look back
Whoa, I’m never gonna give it up
No, just don’t wake me now
This is gonna be the best day of my life
This is gonna be the best day of my life
